I began my caregiving career by becoming a lifeguard because I wanted to keep people safe and help those in need. I then mad the amazing opportunity to become a CNA my senior year of high school. I wanted to become a CNA to help people that can't help themselves or are in need of care and companionship. I learned CPR and first aid and all the great skills that make a great CNA. My favorite part of the job is helping with activities of daily living for clients/patients and knowing that I was able to make someone's day better and brighter.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
