I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping others. Being a caregiver is very rewarding and it feels good to know your helping someone who needs help. Being able to care for my Mother the last 6 months of her life was very rewarding even though she didn't know me and many times was very mean to me. I have been married to a wonderful man for twenty years and I wouldn't trade him for the world. I have been in the health field for twenty years and it is exciting to learn and keep learning new ideas meeting different people, no one is exactly alike.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
