Hi everyone, my name is Veronica Torres and I am 46 years old. I love being a caregiver because I am able to help and accompany someone who is unable to care for themselves. Growing up and having so many more responsibilities than a normal teen to help my mother taught me to be responsible and gave me the courage to care for others. My job as a dietary aide was the push from just serving patients to wanting to care for them. Being a caregiver has given me the ability to be selfless and care for another being just as I would like to be cared for. I am proud that I have been able to make clients lives easier and spend quality time that makes them happy.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
