Ever since I was a little kid I've always wanted to help people. In high school I volunteered all four years at a senior facility that offered different activities for them to participate in. Throughout those four years I also visited my grandmother every other day and visited her. I helped clean her apartment, as well as other day today activities. I'm happy to say that at 93 she's still going strong, and we talk on the phone all the time. I truly found my calling with my current job caring for almost 40 people a night, split between myself and two other employees. I make sure my clients are happy and loved. When I know they are low on anything (whether it's socks or food) I make sure they are never without.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
