First and foremost, I am not a caregiver and I don't really have experience. The only experience I do have is helping my friend who has lupus and arthritis. I would shower her, dress her, feed her and help her walk when the pain was too much for her. What attracted me to want to become a caregiver is that a lot of people don't realize that elderly people are lonely and need someone to talk to or be there for them and I want to be that person. I love making them smile because it just brightens their whole day. So if you can just give me a chance, I will learn everything there is to become the best care giver there is. And I'm fast learner.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
