I became a caregiver so I could help seniors have a better quality of live and give them back some of their independance. Being a caregiver is rewarding because I like helping people and I like putting a smile on peoples faces. I feel like my personal achievement was being able to care for both of my parents and my brother. It`s a good feeling knowing that I was able to keep them at home and look after them. I have been caregiving for over 15 years and I have taken care of not only my parents and brother but also my grandmother. I have worked in a Assisted Living Facility and a Nursing home. I have also taken care of people one on one in their own home.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
