Some qualities about me that make me a great caregiver is that I am patient, laid back, a good listener, I am compassionate but will encourage for the client to be as vibrant and have as much as a zeal for life as possible. My mother had a stroke back in 2006. I became a caregiver and have been her caregiver for 14 years. It's not a job I chose but I have become inspired to stay in the field and help others as best as I can. I enjoy seeing the client healthy and happy. When my client is smiling, that's when I know I've done my job. I have no awards or certificates, but I am generally proud of the work that I have done with my mother over the years.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
