Hi, my name is Romel. I live in Odessa, TX and I've been a caregiver for about seven years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my family. Taking care of my immediate family and other people and I love working with older people and other people who are in need.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, be compassionate to people you are caring for. And not only that but be mindful that you are for them and with them in helping them to be not just a better person but to be able to help them in their special need.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Mr. Miguel. He is very patient and there are a lot of things that I do for him. He's really in need and sometimes very irritable and agitated most of the time. But I didn't give up on him because we developed a good relationship.
