Honestly, I've always had a giving personality and I like helping people. But I'd love to tell you a story, which really helped me make this decision. When my grandfather passed away, my grandmother was left alone. Plus, her arthritis was starting to worsen, and she began having more and more trouble preparing her meals, bathing, and getting her groceries. So we found her a caregiver--and she was absolutely amazing! She stayed with my grandma for longer hours than was expected--typically playing some Chopin and Debussy records (her favorite music) while telling stories about growing up in Europe. That was very soothing for my grandma, and that caregiver inspired me to join this field."
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
