Hi my name is Taiye. I've been a caregiver for two years and I live in the city of Bellflower,CA.

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I always feel a burden in me whenever I see old people trying to do things and they can't do it themselves. So I'm always delighted and I feel so much happy when I help them to do it because it puts smiles on their face, and they always looking, smiling, and saying, "Thank you, thank you." And they really appreciate it. It always makes me happy when I put smiles on their face by helping them out. That's why I became a caregiver.

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be just love what you're doing. If you're just doing it for the money, then don't go for it. Look for something else. But if you have the passion to help old people, and you're always happy when you help them out, then go for it. It's something you should be in. That's going to be my advice. Then always be really careful when you help old people. You don't need to rush it because most times, they just do things a step at a time. So you should always have the patience to just always do things slow with them the way they want to do things. That should be my advice to a new caregiver.

Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Janie. It was at a facility that's family health care, at a facility. She had dementia, but most times she tried to express herself in different ways. And sometimes it looked like she's conscious about what you're doing, but later she just goes back to being lost or something. But every time you always try to talk to her, tell her stuff, play games with her, like activities and everything, you always see that she's so happy and everything. She's still happy. I don't really know if she knew when I told her I was actually leaving, but I could sense it that she really didn't know. But she was so nice because she just always tried to express herself the in way she could, and that was just it. It was always nice just taking good care of her.
