After seeing my Grandmother go through a very lengthy illness and watching the Caregiver's come and go, that sometimes weren't the most caring or compassionate, I decided to become one myself. I believe that certain people were given the gift of patience and the compassion needed to provide the care needed by elderly people, while others just don't possess those characteristics. I can proudly say that every client I have ever worked with, always became like family to me because there isn't a person that I've met so far that hasn't made an impact on my life in some way and vice versa. I have worked with handicapped,both physically and mentally, elderly people who needed minimal help to elderly clients with Dementia or Alzheimer's. I understand the importance of paying attention to detail in this career and most importantly making sure that the client is always happy and made to feel comfortable. I always strive to not only provide the care that I would want someone to show my love one, but always keeping the mindset that one day I too will be elderly and in need of someone to care for me, is the best motivation to be the best Caregiver that I can be. Being a Caregiver gives me a sense of fulfillment knowing that I am helping someone and providing them with the loving and supportive companionship that everyone deserves.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
