About
Hi. My name is Larry. I live in Sacramento, CA and I have been a caregiver for about 8 years now.

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I really, really enjoy helping people, making a difference, doing the job that someone else probably wouldn't do. For example, cleaning up after them or just spending time with them, it's not a job that people enjoy. But I enjoy it myself just because I love getting to know people, talking to them, and just enjoy their company. I did it for my grandma for years, so it's been a part of me lately. Now it doesn't even feel like a job no more. It just feels like something I just enjoy doing.

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be just to be open-minded, to be patient. I think patience is a real big one because you're dealing with people that could have Alzheimer's, dementia. A lot of times, you could be repeating yourself or you just don't think you talk with normal people. Just patience is a real big one just because you're not dealing with the norm. So patience, open-minded.

Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I won't forget is my grandfather because I cared for him for years. I lived in-home with him, all my life basically. So I basically did a lot of his work. And just before, I didn't really know much of my grandfather - didn't really get the chance to get to know him until I became his caregiver. So I really enjoyed getting to know him.
