I became a caregiver 27 years ago because my strongest leaning was to be of service. I had always had customer service jobs assisting others in many ways. What I like is the one-on-one care as it seemed much more gratifying and has proven to be so. I once moved to Hawaii and worked as a caregiver there also, enjoying the same service within a new culture. I live in Mesa now and am happy to settle down here near family and have 2 daughters, 3 grandsons. I came here from Illinois for the weather and have been here over 30 years, except for a move to Las Vegas, Hawaii and Sedona. I enjoy so many subjects and love to research. This allows me to converse with my clients well and help them forget their aches and pains for a short time at least. I love to read, garden, study, research, go to movies, dine out.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
