Thought that I wanted to retire then realised I missed working, I don't want to stop working. When people who know me find out I want to go back to work they always suggest I go back into caregiving. I like to help people, I see the importance of treating each person who needs assistance in a special way. I treat each client the way I would want someone to treat my parent or family member. I feel that most individuals are not happy about needing help, so you have to make them feel spoiled and appreciated and respected, and keep their information private, that is what I do for a client.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
