My family needed for a caregiver. My mother-inlaw was diagnosed with bone cancer. she was a very proud woman and I was proud of her. I charished the opportunity to give back the respect she had given. I was employed by the largest private owned residential/nursing home chain in Texas for five years. i started as a CNA and was promoted to the assistant activity manger within three years. I designed a system of integration which included the nursing, phyical therapist and volunteers. I felt everyday that I really contributed to the quality of life for all involved. The volunteer rooster increased from ten to seventy-five in the first year. Recently, I became a caregiver for a gentleman who had five brain surgeries. He has returned to work. I have worked in other industries ie..contract negoiater,quality control tech and facility assistant manager. But when I look back, I enjoyed caregiving.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
