Hi,my name is Tonia. I live in Los Angeles and I've been in the caregiving business for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have so much passion,love and patience to be one. Also, I've been a caregiver for my mother for over three years and been helping people from the heart. Caregiving is my passion. It's my heart, and it's what I desire to do.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver would be to be genuine,polite, kind, and patient. Be courteous. Engage in good conversation to make the patient feel good. Always be alert, and always be on time for what you have to do for your patient.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Tanya. She is always happy and can't wait to see me so we can engage on our day, and I can help her as needed. She always has a smile on her face despite her differences, and we get along so well. She appreciates the things that I do for her and I appreciate her allowing me to do the things I do for her
