Hello, my name is Zahiyah. I live in Lake Elsinore, CA and I have been a caregiver for over seven years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my mom and her illnesses that she had. I actually went out of town to help her for a couple of months and mission was accomplished. I love caring for the elderly due to the fact that they can't really get up and do things how they used to do and I just really love the bond that I build and everything that comes with it.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to introduce yourself as friendly as possible because patients need that and they don't really need anything that's going to make them feel uncomfortable and just do things with pride.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Sherry. She was so loving and caring and I really hate the fact that our session ended. I just work with her again, I would definitely, definitely love that.
