It all started with my mother. She's been a caregiver since I was a teenager. Seeing how rewarding it is to assist someone that truly needs the care truly drew me in. I knew right away that this field was right for me. I've been a care companion for over 7 years and it's been very rewarding and very educational. Experience is the best teacher and over the years I've learned first hand how to properly bath, offer medication reminders, prep meals for individual clients needs, give emotional support and other added skills to make me a better care companion/caregiver.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
