The reason why I am a great caregiver is because I have the experince of working with the elderly for 17 years as an LPN, I am very compassionate, dependable and will go above and beyond anything the client requests. Listening is very important especially someone who suffers from dementia and is cognitively impaired. You have to have patience with these clients because they can become very frustrated. You as a caregiver look for signs such as their body language if they cant communicate very well. It takes a special kind of person and the experience to handle situations when the client is impaired. I was a nurse supervisor working in nursing homes and assisted living.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
