Hi, my name is Tierra. I live in Perris, CA and I've been a caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I used to caregive for my auntie and just helped her become a better person every single day. Treating her like she's a normal human being just made me a better person, and I just love helping people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to treat people how you would like yourself to be treated and cared for. Also give this job your full one hundred percent, the same way as if it was any other regular jobs. Take your job very seriously and do not joke around because you're dealing with people's lives.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is my auntie because she has such a loving heart. No matter what, she understands, and every day, she becomes a better person. She improved in a lot of things that she did not have or started with.
