Care giving is a calling. An inborn need to nurture others, whether they be children, aging adults, or individual with special needs. I was a caregiver for my younger sister, who is autistic, but I sensed she needed protecting, or nurturing, before anyone else.I have a son who has very special needs, and of course I am his strongest advocate. I love to care for others, to uplift them, help them, to live their lives to the best of their abilities. I am proud of the positive difference I have made in the lives of those I provide care for, as well as their family members. I am also a respite provider, and prefer to say I provide a service to the FAMILY, as well as individuals requiring care. I am a married mother of 3, and have 2 wonderful young grandchildren.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
