Some of my personality traits would be that I love to care for my family and friends but in this case it would be my residents . I make sure that they're comfortable and feel safe. What attracted me to become a caregiver was that just because they're seniors doesn't mean there life is over they have much more to live for but, with needed help. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is that I try to make them feel happy, safe, comfortable, loved, and cared for. A personal achievement that I am proud of is that the family is always satisfied with my work and say I meet every requirement of takeing care of their loved one, but most important is that my resident feels safe and that they always have a smile on their face because of what I do.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
