I have been around nursing facilities since I was a child. My mother has been a CNA from the time I was very young to now working as a Home Hospice Nurse. Growing up around that profession and going to work with her when I had the chance, it stuck on me. I knew from the time I was 11 that I wanted to grow up and have a part in caring for residents in their final stages. I have bent over backwards for my residents and their families, I'm often told I "spoil them too much," which I don't believe is possible. I am very flexible and can adjust quickly to different needs. I enjoy spending one on one time with residents and hearing all the stories about their past lives! Even though some days are extremely hard and you get so attached to residents making their personal struggles part of your own, I do not think there is anything else on this world I would rather do.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
