Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
My name is Mingir. I'm from Nepal. I live in Grand Avenue in Chinatown in San Francisco. I was five years in Israel working as a caregiver, so during my five years, I worked with many clients. I don't remember the names. As I worked so long time, I felt that I most knowledge to work in this field.
What types of clients do you work with?
What are your strengths as a caregiver?
I work with dementia. I work with the bed ridden person. I work disabled. Parkinson's disease strong, mostly this. Diabetes, all this thing is normal. Everybody have mostly these.
Caregiving job is I know tough, but for me it's challenging and kind of social work for me. At least I can contribute something for legally in senior citizen and disabled people, which I really enjoy, I really like. I learn lot of things, like when I was in Israel, I never cooked. I never used to cook at home, because in Nepal, we never cook. The man normally never cook. Nobody cooked at home. Once I go there, I started to cook with him, the clients. It is okay, bring this, bring that. Now do this, go there, clean that, everything. So I did it along.
