I became a caregiver for my mother for almost 3 years ,prior to her death. She was bedridden for the last year. I dealt with all her needs & the Hospice people that attended her. Since then I have cared for 2 different elderly women. One recovering from hip replacement ,that initially needed 24/7 care & companion to the other that was almost blind. I am very good at making them laugh & focus on the humorous side of aging. Something I think is missing from most elderly people's lives. I enjoy listening to their stories- their experiences. I consider myself easy to be with & adjustable to many situations.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
