Caregiving 5 years ago began by being a side job, but it rapidly became what I loved doing the most. I've taken care of different seniors and I became attached to each one of them; it is hard not to. When I am with them I feel as if they are my own grandparents and I protect them to the best of my ability because I know they're fragile and dependent on me. Caregiving no longer is a job for me, yes, I live off that, but my heart is 100% there committed to helping our seniors with their daily lives or making them comfortable through their last days. I love being able to put a smile on their face when I walk in, make them feel like they matter and fill their days with routines and happiness at the same time. I have been told that my heart is big and full of gold because of my job and they are right, I have been instilled with great values, good morals along with being loving, caring, humble, kind and patient, these are traits that I live off and work to progress every day.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
