Hello! I became a Caregiver because I was in a position to take care of an elderly family member for several years. I love the opportunity to work closely with a single family or person, to get to know them, and to help them to be safe and comfortable in their own home. I am proud of owning my own company for the last 16 years (I work weekends with horse-drawn carriages), and the pride comes with knowing that I am capable of a strong commitment. I am 43 years old and happily married for 13 years. I have a single biological son and have been a foster parent for almost a year.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
