I enjoy helping people that need help to live a better life because they are unable to do things themselves. Since I have been in home care (since 2006), it is also important to care for the whole family. I am 54 years old and started babysitting at the age of 11. I have raised 2 wonderful boys while working 21 years at a nursing home in Oshkosh, WI. I am now living in Sun City Center, FL where I enjoy home care. I did take a break to work for Options for Senior America as a care coordinator but found my true passion is hands on work.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
