Hi! My name is Melvina and I'm an experienced caregiver. I've been a caregiver for over five years for family and friends. Also, I have been a caregiver in a personal care home setting which dealt with patients with Dementia, Schizophrenia, Alzheimer's, and Severe Depression. My skills are Personal Hygiene, Medication Management, Light Housekeeping, Errands, Transportation, PEG (feeding tube), and Companionship. One motto that was instilled in me was"Treat them like you want to be treat because one day you are going to be old". You really have too have a heart and the love of people to do this type of work and I really love it.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
