The thing that makes me a good caregiver is I put he/she needs first before anything else. I decided to become a caregiver when I had my first experience to take care one of the nicest lady that I have ever met but she's lonely and needed someone to accompany her. Everytime she see me. It makes her so happy so,right then I want to be part of their life not only taking care of them and help them for what they need but a person that put a smile on their face. I'm easily to get along with and very tentative. I'm always on time no questions about it. I'm a good listener but need a little push to talk but I'll get there to get use to it.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
