I wanted to become a caregiver because I am compassionate person and care about people. I love to listen and have a kind heart. It is most rewarding being a caregiver because the people count on you and they are able to stay in the comfort of their own homes. My personal achievement is that I obtained my bachelors degree, A.A., A.S. while working full time and a mother. When everyone thought I was doing to much, I thought that I might not be doing enough. I had my mind on that prize and I achieved it. What makes me a great caregiver is the compassion and understanding, loyalty, and determination for my patients.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
