I have been working as a caregiver since I was 19 years old and I am now 27. I took care of my grandfather who had ALS, my great grandmother with Alzheimer's, and my moms dad who had liver disease. I did home healthcare last year and enjoyed it but the company was very unprofessional. I am planning on going back to college in a year or so to finish my nursing career as a registered nurse. The medical field is my passion and has been since I was young. I am very dedicated and will always give the best care possible. I treat the patients I take care of as I would my own family and I get attached to people very easy. I have a big heart which I feel like you have to have to be in this profession. I want to keep growing and will never stop doing what I love. I would be a great candidate for any caregiver position because I've had experience with almost every type of disease or sickness.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
