i became a CNA back in 1994. I let my certification expire because I was moving out of state. Since then my Father had become ill with cancer. I flew out from Michigan and took car of him. I became a certified Caregiver in 2003. To me it comes natural to take care of people who need it. My personal achievement would be having a Dr. tell me I should go and get my doctrine. I have always been taking care of people all my life. I started Babysitting at the age of 8 years old, I was taking care of my oldest sisters daughter at the age of 12 every summer for 12-14 hours a day. I have also had experience with autistic children. I have a Nephew who is Autistic. I just LOVE people.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
