My goal initially was to make someone's quality of life better; however, over the years, it has become a passion. I have worked with the terminally ill, medically fragile, and Alzheimer's/Dementia clients, and because of time spent with each of them, I have grown personally, and have come to appreciate life and all that it has to offer. I am most proud of the fact that through positive conversations with my hospice patient (who at the time I started to care for him had been given three months to live), he stopped dwelling on the end of life, and started living one day at a time. Consequently, he lived over a year past his original "end" date. I currently work two jobs. One with medically fragile/non-verbal patients during the day at a residential care home as a Community Access Specialist, and in the evening I work with clients with mild to severe psychological diagnosis at a crisis home as a Direct Support Professional.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
