Hi, my name is Tyler. I've been a caregiver for four years. I live in the city of Sun City, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love what I go, giving back to the elderly people. It sure is good to know that I can take care of someone that's in need of help and to be cared for again. I also did it for personal reasons. Before my grandfather died, I took care of him for the last three years before he passed away, and it really inspired me just to give back to our elderly people and feel good about things.
What advice would you give to a new caregiver?
My advice to a caregiver would be just to really love what you're doing and know that you're also putting care for another person that their family can do, so you're also part of their family, and so always just love your job and take care of what you have to do.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is my grandfather because being there for him every day taking care of him, making sure he has a smile on his face, and he feels good, to know that he's getting tooken care of really makes me feel good inside.
