Hi, my name is Tamika, I live in Richmond and have been a CNA for 2 years.
What inspired you to get into caregiving?
I took care of my grandfather before he passed away and I decided to go back to school because I like helping the elderly with their activities of daily living.
What piece of advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
To be patient and always treat your residents with respect and dignity and integrity at all times.
Who was one of your most memorable clients?
One client I will never forget was very kind, upfront and always liked to help do things and was very appreciative of me being with him.
