I became a caregiver because it is a career that requires interaction with the elderly community. Since looking after my grand-parents of both my maternal and paternal side of the family I developed appreciation and love for all that they have done for me. The strong family support was a blessing to me and my family. I like being a caregiver because I am patient, kind, soft-spoken, trustworthy which are the key attributes for elderly care. I have passion for the elderly. I love to assist them and make them well for they are the most caring people. The personal achievement I am proud of is making known through community service, church and family gatherings that looking after their elderly loved ones is important in family. I have thoroughly studied caring for elderly and devoted my time to elderly communities to develop myself to understand their needs and wants. I am knowledgable in elderly care, kind, considerate, loving, trustworthy, an independent worker. I can work with minimum supervision, cook healthy meals, attend to emergency situations. I am a team player with great communication and organizational skills.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
