I become a caregiver because I believe a person should be able to live in their home where they are comfortable and feel safe and secure. I believe people that maintain a sense of independence live longer and healthier lives. What I like about being a caregiver is that I can promote this sense of independence and well being by assisting a person that wants to stay in their own home. I helped my mother full time keep my father at home until he passed away two years ago. My mother has just been diagnosed with Parkinsons' Disease and I currently help with her part-time. I also sit for an elderly woman while her husband run errands. I enjoy helping people and also enjoy pets. I love to cook, garden, and play the piano and sing. I am a mother of three and a have one granddaughter. I keep my granddaughter after school. I am available to work mornings until noon and weekends.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
