Warren’s journey into caregiving began with volunteering at his local fire department, responding to fires and medical emergencies for individuals across all age groups. This experience ignited a desire to work with diverse populations, which ultimately led him to his current role as a caregiver catering to a range of ages from infants to the elderly. He believes one must consider the totality of the patient's experience and creates a nurturing environment that fosters active learning, empathy, and curiosity, ensuring his patients feel seen, heard, and valued. He has been a beacon of emotional support for his patients, particularly those without active social connections.
One story that illustrates Warren's compassion and dedication involves his care for a very special infant patient. With determination and tenacity, he advocated for the child's needs, reaching out to a neurologist and geneticist to push for additional diagnostic tests. This led to the eventual diagnosis of a terminal genetic condition on the child's first birthday. The prognosis indicated that the child had one year to live. Warren transitioned his role from focusing on developmental progression to maintenance, and eventually, palliative support. Recognizing the family's religious beliefs, he connected them with prayer groups and other families dealing with similar situations, offering invaluable emotional support.
