My name is Violetta Orlanda. I live in Carpinteria, California. I have 25 years of experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love the job. I grew up with my grandmother and I took care of her when she was alive until she passed away. And while taking care of her, that's when I realized that this is the job that I wanted to do.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to the new caregiver, give the best care that you can ever give to your patient. Be kind to them. Give them all the respect that they need or they want and also give them the love that you can give to them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Joe. He was very enjoyable to be with. Had sense of humor, and very precise with everything. He showed a lot of respect to everyone, to all the caregivers that he had.
