I became a caregiver because I wanted to help those who once helped others when they could. Also, i always wanted to be in the medical field so i knew being a caregiver will give me that back round knowledge. What I like most about being a caregiver is seeing the patients/residents/clients feel comfortable with me and developing a relationship with them. Making them feel good at least for a couple of hours is very rewarding to me. I am very proud of graduating high school and now I am in college pursuing a further education. I am 20 yrs old. I am very involved in my community, volunteer at my local church, different food drives, clothing drives etc.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
