I have 10 years of experience as a caregiver. I have cared for the elderly affected by Alzheimer's and dementia. I have cared for patients on hospice and end of life care. My duties include light housekeeping, meal preparation, personal care, medication administration, doctors appointments, grocery shopping and other errands. I enjoy working with the elderly because I connect with them easy and most of them have a great sense of humor. Caregiving is more than just a pay check: It is rewarding to know that I am making a difference in someone's day.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
