Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
My name is Kava, and I live in San Jose. I've worked as a caregiver for about 6 years. I decided to become a caregiver because in my country I worked as an elementary school teacher and also with special Ed students for many years. My wife worked for elderly people and I began working this way as well. 
Who is the first client that comes to your mind?
One of the client that I worked with was very physically fit. He was a soldier before, but he had Alzheimer's. No caregiver wanted to go there because he was so fit and he could fight with you; he knew how to fight. He was my first client. When I worked with him, I learned a lot from him. Early in the morning he would go for a run, and I would follow him running. Most of the caregivers didn't know the trick with him, but I followed him and he loved me. 
What piece of advice would you give to a new caregiver?
The most important thing for a caregiver is to be patient. Secondly is to be understanding of the client. Thirdly is to know the skills and how to handle the client. 
You will be able to connect directly with this caregiver.
