Hi, my name is TemiTope. I live in Covina, CA and I have 2 years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love the job. I love to care for adults, the old ones. Take care of them, to give them help in their living, to assist them in their living.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to show love them, to assist them in their living, to boost their morale, to let them feel they belong. They should feel they are important and comfortable. They should feel happy always. We should make them feel very, very happy; not sad.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Daniel. He's always aggressive. At times he pulls down his things and destroys things in the facility. So whenever I see an attitude that I think is bad, is not happy, I quickly give him snacks like cookies and drinks. So whenever he gets that way, I will get him agree to read, or I take him out for a walk, to walk, to do exercises on the road, let's take a walk. He's always happy. So I know how to calm him down by doing so that he will not destroy anything in the facility.
