Hi. My name's Tiffany. I live in Discovery Bay, CA, and I have been a caregiver for about ten years.How did you get into caregiving?I became a caregiver because I've always enjoyed working with people and kids, most of my experience is with kids. I have special needs experience. My mom's friend's
kids, babysat them quite a bit, and then I've also worked with elderly people as well.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient to anybody, like a kid or elderly person. The patient is most important. And understanding - to make sure you understand the situation and understand their feelings so it is better for you and for them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
Timmy. I remember Timmy. He was a special kid and he was just precious. I was mostly with him. I can't remember what his disorder was, but he was a joy to work with. He always kept a smile on my face and I never had a bad day when I was around him.
