Hi, my name is Taniya. I live in Ontario, CA. And I've been a caregiver for six years. 

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandpa, he is elderly and he is in need of assistance, and so I am the person to relieve the nurses when they needed time for themselves. But really, when I was a little kid I have always wanted to become a nurse. And so I've always cared for people and always wanted to help when people are in need of something that I can offer them. 

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always consider the patient, because you never know they might have a different cultural background, and cultural beliefs, and a different religion than you have. So, just go to them and try to do what they asked you, what they like. 

Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget his name is Joseph, and he loves to tell stories about his life. He has dementia, but he's able to recall the stories back in the day when he was around in his 20's or younger. He just loves to tell stories about his life, and what he accomplished, and what he had to do. And he also talks about the grace of God and how he is loved. And he just loves to talk about different scriptures of the Bible. And I think as a Christian woman, that is just awesome, to hear his stories, his background, and his love for God.
