Hi, I'm Ramil. I'm live in Los Angeles, CA and I'm a caregiver for 14 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I used to take care of my grandmother and my grandfather. As a Filipino we have this trait that we take care of our old loved ones. That's why I like caregiving.
What advice would you give a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver is, first, you need to go to school at least finish like a CNA or nursing career. Make sure that you know your patients, make sure that you give all that they need and you have an idea of what you're doing, what you are doing with your patient. And always take care of your patient. Always keep an eye on them, and just do your job well.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I never forget is Mr. Luis. He's an actor. He's a very kind man. I took care of him for almost four years. He has everything. He has a very good character, a funny guy, and also caring. So all of those experiences just really help me a lot of being a caregiver.
