I'm Meredith, a 21 year old graduate student. Instead of looking for work as a bartender or waitressing I am a caregiver. Growing up I have had to help lend a caregiver's hand to both my grandfather and grandmother. Then more recently, my brother, after an accident. However, adults are my bread and butter! I tend to really get along with and have fun with adults and older adults. In college I majored in Hearing Disorders and took several Aging Studies courses. I am energetic, empathetic, organized and a great problem solver.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
