I became a caregiver because I enjoy meeting new people and I have great compassion for others. An achievement I am personally proud of is going back to school and receiving a certificate in Business Office of administration. I am an outgoing, creative, and dedicated individual. In 2007 I worked for Metro care and was a caregiver to my niece with cerebral palsy. My tasks were admitting proper dose of medications during specific times, feedings through the stomach (nicu button), Caring for her tracheostomy, and monitoring her machines. I have many years of professional experience in management, office, and customer service. From 2011-2014 I've also volunteered once or twice a week at my daughter's elementary school. At Orange County Educational Arts Academy I assisted teachers with various tasks such as assisted students with class assignments, student grading, making copies, and created whimsical build boards. Also, I'd help in the schools library, participated in fund raiser functions, and assured student safety at the playground during recess.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
