I am a caregiver because I have always taken care of my ill mother. It was later on in my life that I wanted to receive some education on being a caregiver. What I like about being a caregiver is that I am less concerned about myself and more willing to help someone else who really needs me. I recently graduated a CNA/HHA class with a B+. My name is Sharita and I am 24 yrs old. My mother has been ill all my life but she didn't start depending on me until I was 21 yrs old. It meant more to me to help her than to go do for myself. I am now pursuing nursing to get better education of taking care of her and others.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
