Hi, my name is Orod. I live in San Francisco, CA and I been as a caregiver for almost two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
My friend offered me a position as a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
I learned as a caregiver how we have to be patient, especially with a person who have dementia and even if it's family, sometimes they don't do as they should. You got to be patient and help the patient very well. Be kind, supportive and attentive.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I worked with war veteran and he was very nice and kind. He fought in the Vietnam War and he died from cancer. He have good memory of his life.
