To be a great caregiver you must first have a heart, & patience. You Must treat your client how you would want to be treated if you were in their place, or if they were your own grandmother or grandfather. About two years ago my grandmother had a stroke and been in the nursing home since, and everytime i go visit her i see alot of other patients there with no family and i sit and talk with them as if they were my grandparent and that just makes their day. Everyone deserves a little TLC. I am a great caregiver because i care hard for others and love to help others who truly needs my help.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
