Hello there, My name is Kathleen, I have been a caregiver most of my life in one way or another but started very young. I have the compassion and patients and the heart to care for the elderly. I took care of my Mother for over 4 years. She has dementia but we were always the best of friends being that I was from a family of 7 siblings and I was the only girl. Recently I had to put Mom into ALF. Which broke my heart but finally she is starting to adjust well. It has been a hard road for all of us. I think that God above put me into a caregiving roll, that this must be my mission in life because as I been looking for jobs out there is this very unstable world I keep getting drawn back to caregiving. It would be my pleasure to work with the elderly once again. You always learn from them and as long as they are treated with the upmost respect you will get it back tenfold.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
