Hi, my name is Angelo, I live in Richmond, CA and I've been a caregiver for a little over 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I started taking care of my grandmother and my mom. I started off just basically doing regular caregiving, and it became where I had went into doing hospice care.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, the client is always right, and we also have to basically take out the time to listen to the client, and consider their want and need before anything.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Abner. I was actually still working with him. He's a very intelligent older person, and I think and know that we have a very special bond because I developed close relationships with my client and I would never forget him.
