I believe I'm a great caregiver because I care from the heart not the pay. The first thing that attracted me to being a caregiver was the fact that I just fell in love with the at home setting of caregiver. Growing up I always heard about people who have put the family away in a "home" when they reach their senior years, but my first interview , it was the total opposite.I worked in a house that had 6 residents, and it was theor home, they were like all room mates in a sense and I had never seen anything like it up until that day. And from then on I wanted to be a part of everything that goes along with caregiving.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
