Hello, my name is Tia, I am 25, located in Cedar lake, IN. I became a Caregiver, when I was 18 years old, my great grandfather needed some extra help around the house and I happily assumed the position as his helper. It ended up being a really rewarding experience, which led me to go forth and work with others that needed assistance. I understand that this job requires patience, kindness and understanding. Along with understanding, also, comes attention to detail. Paying attention to how they prefer their own specific daily routine and incorporating care needed around that, is essential for maintaining a calm and easy transition.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
