Caregiver Interview: Darby

“My favorite part of the job is, even when I miss a day, somebody remembers. Rather than, when you work in an office every day, sometimes you can miss 3 days and everybody just kind of forgets that you exist, whereas if I leave for even a day, my Client is super excited to see me the next day.”
