I became a caregiver simply because I love caring for others. I feel it is truly my calling in life. It is the opportunity to personally give others in need the assistance and companionship needed with the respect that our elderly or disabled citizens deserve. I have been caring for people on a full time basis for 15 years, if you listen carefully, they can teach you a lot... even about yourself. I started caring for my family members when needed when I was younger, and it gave me a great appreciation for them, a boost of confidence, and self worth. I enjoyed the feeling of being able to do something for them, no matter how big or small. That feeling is what drives me today.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
