Hi. My name is Dante. I live in Oakland, CA, and I've been working as a caregiver for almost seven years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I've been caregiver because that was my first job when I moved here to the USA. And since then, that's the job I've been doing.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
Advice for a new caregiver is to deal with client with compassion, love, and care because this is not only the job. You're dealing with life. So you have to be extra in everything you do.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget is Mr. Theodore because basically I worked for him for more than six years. We have a lot of fond memories together because I live with him basically for more than six years. And I learned a lot of things from him, and I treat him just like my own grandfather.
