I have many years of experience, working with residents from ages 18 to 80. I also have vast experience with all sorts of disorders, developmental disabilities, impairments, mental illnesses, and traumatic brain injuries. I have been trained on an annual basis in deescalating behaviors, therapeutic intervention, crisis prevention and intervention, etc. I have done job coaching, as well as exercise coaching, including volunteering with the special Olympics for several years. Seeing the improvements and the changes in residents' lives and routines, is what makes caregiving such a rewarding job.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
