From my experience working as a caregivers the characteristics of a great caregiver are demonstrating empathy and compassion for the client, supporting the clients family members, who may be struggling to cope with their loved one's decline, committing to professional growth and continuing education, including attending all trainings at your agency, being reliable, including arriving for work on time and fulfilling all duties in a timely manner, respecting your clients' privacy and dignity, exhibiting a positive demeanor and kind tone of voice. Being considerate and kind when working with the patient. Acting as a personal supporter and cheerleader for your patient and their family during difficult days
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
