I have never been a caregiver in a career setting before. I was a teacher for 6yrs and prior to that the manager of a restaurant from high school-college. I do have 4+ years volunteering in a nursing home. I would be good in this position because I am nurturing and dedicated. I also have parents with multiple health problems and a child that had birth defects and an colostomy in place for several months. I was their sole caregiver, which helped me to gain a lot of background knowledge. I hope that I can fill this role with your loved one.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
