I became a caregiver in 1995 because of its flexible schedule. I had two young children and wanted to avoid placing them in daycare. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to have helped some of the most remarkable people I have ever met. People who have survived insurmountable odds and those who have had lives fulfilled with the love of good family. I have witnessed what a support system can do for people. And I have seen what happens to those who are less fortunate. As caregivers our role is to assist people to maintain as much independence as possible. Whether in the form of feeding themselves or dressing themselves. All of these simple tasks that we take for granted are the cornerstones of independence for the elderly and infirm. I pride myself on being able to make my patients feel very "safe" with me. I enjoy being that someone they can count on to respond to their needs.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
