My name is Paul. In Hebrew, that name means "small, humble". I'm 6'4", and I always thought that the meaning "small" was silly, but I have learned that the other definition, "humble", is the true nature of my name. Growing up on a family farm in Pennsylvania, I learned the values of community, legacy, and respect. Whether it was serving food at a church potluck, shoveling snow from a neighbor's driveway, or selling Christmas trees to the local community, my background has centered around serving others. When I first began caregiving, it was of necessity. I found a living situation with a woman who needed assistance recovering from a long-term mental injury. Since that time, I want to be a caregiver in a more structured setting. The benefits of a relationship with an elder individual are far reaching, and I have appreciated the opportunity to connect across generational and situational differences. I feel like my best self when I am able to be a support for others, especially those who can't support themselves.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
