I was born and raised in a conservative environment where family values are cherished and elders are respected. Although most of my working career I've been a nanny for various families, I was presented with the opportunity to work in the area of senior/elderly care. Once the transition was made, I found that the skills that I possess as a nanny made my move into elderly care work a smooth one...child care and elderly care seem to run hand-in-hand. I loved my previous work with the children and home management, and now I enjoy senior care just as much due to the love, affection, companionship and care that I can afford those in need or yearn for.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
