I became a caregiver because once upon a time I had to be cared for by caregivers. and when I got well enough to be able to care for myself again I promised myself that I would give back by becoming a caregiver. What I like about being a care giver is the fact that I can assist someone that is in need. A personal achievement that I am proud of is the fact that for the last three years I have kept my word and have been able to make a difference in someone"s life by caring for them. I am a very caring person. I care for those I know and don't know. I enjoy helping those less fortunate. Being able to help someone and caring about others is very rewarding to me.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
