I started as a caregiver at 18 years old caring for my aunt after she has surgery. I was a live-in and was there for almost 3 years. I cleaned, cooked, provided transportation, and companionship. I fell in love with being a caregiver. I have since been a live-in for a wheelchair-bound man, and a full time caregiver for a paraplegic man. I worked for Comfort Keepers last year until I took time off to get married and have a baby. My daughter is almost a year old and I am ready to get back to being a caregiver. I can offer companionship, patience and understanding. I have experience in feeding, cooking, cleaning, dressing, bathing, first aid, medications, accompanying to doctors, church and stores.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
