I have always been the type of person that loves helping others. I never look at it as being a job. I've always treated my patient like family, as someone I love and care about. Seeing elderly in need is what attracted me as being a caregiver. I enjoy the smile on my paitents face, knowing I was able to help and care for them. A personal achievement that I am proud of is the volunteer work I do for the kids at the local park. Volunteeing my time for a few hours out the week, can make a big difference to the children.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
