I was born a care giver. As a child, I was a companion to my paternal grandmother who died of bone cancer. During adulthood, twice I came back to Idaho Falls to help my mom take care of my maternal grandmother. Grandma Annie had several TIAs and continued to decline rapidly. I was more than happy to help her with all her ADLs, bathing, false teeth, dressing, med prep, and eating. I spent a lot of time as her companion. (She was my buddy!) I also worked with three different family friends; one with dementia, another dying of lung cancer, and the third recuperating after quadruple by-pass. I moved back home permanently, and will be here for my parents If and when they need help. I am semi-retired and looking for a job caring for someone who needs help. I am patient, kind and respectful toward all people, especially those under my care.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
