I have been a caregiver for almost 6 years now. I started as a caregiver with a friend recovering from breast cancer. She is a cancer survivor and living a healthy life now. Knowing that I could make a difference to a person/persons in helping them in their day to day living is great achievement for me. Helping them have comfort physically and emotionally. I am continuously learning, and working with/for them is learning new things and ideas all the time. I believe being a caregiver makes me a better person that I am now. To this date, my wife and I still maintain friendship to families of their love ones we took care of. Every client I took care of, I consider a family and family for me is everything.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
