I was a nurse aid for around 11 years at several different nursing homes. I started doing caregiving when my grandpa moved in with my parents. In 2018 my mother got diagnosed with Parkinson disease I helped her and still do from time to time when she can't do normal activities. This is why i continue to do caregiving work. What would happen if my mom didnt have me to help her when she cant do something. It made me want to be able to help others that dont have anyone there. I have worked for horizon health and also now work for encore as a caregiver. I love being able to help others that can't do normal things for themselves. It is so rewarding.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
