Empathy, Compassion. By showing both empathy and compassion will let the person I am caring for know that I care about the person and want to do what they can to help them. Patience, it is important to be patient and understanding. Reliable, I can be counted on to be there. Trustworthy, and flexible. I love to do caregiving because I naturally have an urge to help others whether it be family, friends, or strangers. I would want to make the world a better place and help everyone feel comfortable, especially within the seniors because sometimes I feel as though they are a forgotten population, and from me working with them for a couple of years now I have grown to love working with them everyone is unique and have their own background, are very wise, funny, gentle, etc .
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
