Being a great care giver comes from 16 years of hand on experience. I did LTC for 14 years and spent 4 years in the hospital field with a combination of Home Health and Mental Health. I became a healthcare worker after my grandmother was diagnosed with lung cancer when I was 18 years old. After helping to take care of her I decided to do it professionally and fell in love with my geriatric pts. One thing I've learned from my whole experience is family is not always the family you was born into, but the people you meet along the way and spend countless years with. I wouldn't trade what I do for nothing else, this is my passion.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
