I have been in the medical field for a long time, I started as a full time Medical Assistant in 2005, working for 3 doctors. It was a great and fast moving experience, but I knew I wanted to do more for others. I became a CNA/ Caregiver after my grandmother passed away, she suffered from dementia and she couldn't move or do things alone anymore, I took care of her for 2 years until she passed. It was tough, but it made me stronger and have more compassion towards others that need help. This is a career that I will forever be thankful for, it's different, it's very rewarding, and I am willing to provide the care where ever is needed.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
