Hi, my name is Emanuel. I live in Richmond, CA and I have been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I like helping people. Also, I received my bachelor's degree in sociology from Sacramento State, and I actually love just being around people, and learning about people, and doing my best to help people out in whichever way I can.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be be yourself, trust in your in instincts, and always be friendly. Friendliness gets you a long way in this world.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Dylan. Dylan just needed a lot of help, but very nice person, very thoughtful, very insightful and just needed help. And always made me feel welcome when I was around him and was just a very good person.
