Hello, my name is Tanisha. I live in Los Angeles, CA and I have been a caregiver for 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I care for a family member of mine that became ill, and also because I love taking care of others and helping others in caring for them.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice would be to a new caregiver is to always observe your client, listen carefully.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget is she was someone that was very loving, she would brighten up your whole day. Soon as I would come to work and get her prepared for the day, she would always show her love and concern for me just as well as I would show the same for her. Whatever concerns or whatever love I gave her, she always returned it right back to me.
