I became a caregiver at the age of 19 right out of high school. I loved the older generations and was closely related to people of that time, so I saw an ad in the paper to apply and become licensed. I like helping people especially the elderly who worked so hard before the rest of us and need help now. I am proud of my caring star certificate from my previous job. If a patient was happy with their care they can send in a paper about it and I was awarded by the care a particular patient was happy with. I have done this work for twelve years and continue to push myself in the medical field to open other opportunities for me to assist people who need care.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
