I became a caregiver, nearly 3 years ago when my father became incapable of taking care of himself. I was his live-in caretaker the last 2 years of his life. Our relationship changed very much over the course of 3 years. I loved being a caregiver because of the amount of trust someone has to put in you, at the most vulnerable time of their life. It becomes a beautiful mutual respect that is unlike any other sort of work. The transformation your company and trust can make for that individual, is more rewarding than any compensation. I'm 23 years old & a mother to a beautiful 3 year old girl. She is my greatest achievement. My ambitions in life is to leave as little a carbon footprint as possible & as big an impact of the spiritual/emotional well being of others as I can. I'm pescetarian (a vegetarian who eats fish) & can prepare countless meals for diabetics, including special renal diets & also gluten free meals. I enjoy politics & believe that everyone should be educated in political affairs to help get the world where we deserve to be & I believe that my start is with the elderly & upholding their basic human rights & beyond. My schedule is flexible. I am always available from 9-5 M-F but prefer to work 25 hours a week or less. Weekend care can be arranged. Also available for "on call" I am a non-smoker, I am drug-free. I have no criminal history and a spotless driving record. I also have my own transportation.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
