I started out caregiving right after high school because it's something my grandma does and I wanted to follow in her footsteps. Being a caregiver has really allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and be less of a shy person and more of my regular outgoing self. It has taught me to have a lot of patience and I also see life from a different perspective since I got into caregiving. The part I enjoy most about being a caregiver is the huge impact I have on someone's life by being able to provide care. A personal achievement of mine is definitely how far I've came as a caregiver, all the experience I have from starting straight out of high school l, and most importantly the impact that I've had on multiple peoples lives.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
