I became a CG at 19, when my mom was diagnosed with cancer, and I've been sitting In general since I was 13. Ever since I was small, I've known I wanted to help people, I just never knew how, until then. I have experience with post op recovery, working with Seniors who are completely immobile, those who suffer from Alzheimer's and dementia, as well as a range of other neurological diseases. I enjoy what I do, no matter how hard it can get, because at the end I know I made a difference to somebody. My favorite part of being a caregiver as well as being a nanny, it's honestly getting to know the person and knowing that their life is just a little bit easier because I've helped.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
