Hi! My name is Fariborz, I live in Bellflower, CA and I have three years experience in caregiving.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandparents. For me, it feels good to be able to help others that need assistance. At the end of the day, I also feel better about myself because I was able to make someone's stay easier.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be you have to be attentive at all times. Always be patient and caring. There will be times when you will need to take things slowly and repeat them. Just be patient.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Gene. He loved to take long walks at the park. He enjoyed and appreciated the meals I prepared for him. We spent most of our time playing chess which I always lost. He loved to share stories of his past and shared a lot of wisdom.
