Hi, my name is Tamika Stevens. I've been a caregiver for five years and I live in Dallas, Texas.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I used to help my grandma and I loved helping her, so I decided to make a career out of it. She got ill so I started to help her move in to a healthier direction.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
Who is one of your most memorable clients?The client I will never forget is Kathy. She always tells funny jokes about her childhood and she always makes you smile and laugh.
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always listen to them, and try to do everything they ask you to do and go beyond their expectation.
