I have always been interested in working with the elderly and disabled. I specifically sought out a degree in psychology to further help myself in this field. I am a very compassionate person and I've always loved to help when needed. Growing up my mother had multiple on going health issues that I had to help with. You can say I've always been a natural caregiver. When I was in high school I cared for my mother through many back surgeries and even cancer. Once I graduated high school I became a full time caregiver being that I had previous experience and it was a great fit for me. Knowing that I can make someone else's life a little easier by providing care and companionship is a very rewarding feeling. Once I care for someone it's only natural for me to care for them like family. No one should have to worry about have proper care. Individuals should be able to stay at home and be comfortable and still live as independently as possible with the necessary care. I have worked with children and adults with a range or mental and physical disabilities mild to severe ranging from autism, strokes, dementia, epilepsy, intellectual disabilities, schizophrenia/bi-polar, and the blind. I am also a Foster parent but do not currently house children.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
