Hi, my name is Rodrigo. I live in Glendale, AZ, and I have almost three years of experience in caregiving.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver to help those in need. I'm very passionate about this position. It makes me feel better about myself to know that I helped someone else. I just love caring for those who need help. So that's why I became a passionate caregiver.
What advice would you give to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to, "Be patient with everyone you work with. Not everyone you work with is going to be easy. No one said it was easy." So the advice I would give is for them to be patient and kind, always, no matter how difficult it may be. They always need to be passionate about this job.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
Client I will never forget is Carlos. He was always easygoing, but it's not only that. He gave me some difficult times, but from them, I learned the best to be patient. And at the end, he end up liking me a lot. So I've never forget him. He left a mark on me, so it's a big reason why I do this. But yeah, he's the one I will never forget.
