I wanted to give back and I find is very rewarding to help out others. I have always been a compassionate and caring person. I am CPR certified and it is good for 2 years. I have been a Caregiver now going on 6 years this November. I am married and I have a daughter that is 12 and two step-daughters, ages 20 and 26. The hardest part about this line of work is when your client passes. I have had two that have passed and that I had been with for the entire 5 years. They start to become like family.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
