I was a teacher for 30 years and I am retiring at the end of May. I am a single mother of 2. My oldest child will graduate from college in the fall and my youngest will enter. I have always taken care of those in need whether it be my children at home or school, my elderly neighbor, Ms. Stanley, before she passed when her family was unable, or the rescue dog who is currently comfortably lounging on the sofa. Being a caregiving comes naturally and brings a sense of joy that I can make someone else's life more pleasurable or manageable. We all need a helping hand from time to time. Even me. I enjoy gardening, swimming, reading, and socializing.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
