Hi, my name is Virgilio. I live in Leemore, CA and I've been working as a caregiver for 4 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I did not give my parents caregiving when they are old. So maybe this is the time that I can help others, even though I did not help my parents.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is this: You must be patient. Treat your client as your relatives or loved one, and you will gain some respect from them, and you will be happy working with them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Jenny. Sometimes she is so fighting. But then times whenever I talk to her in a nice way and I listen to her it gives her some comfort. She's always telling to others that I'm a good person. Telling to her relatives, to her son, that this guy is a good person there. So I'm happy when I hear that.
