I chose to become a Caregiver because I enjoy helping others and giving them good care and respect. I enjoy helping people who are unable to help themselves. I like to be friendly and encouraging as I work. I am a good communicator in working with clients, their families and other caregivers. This helps the patient to feel respected and to receive the best possible care. To tell you a little about myself, I am originally from Sierra Leone but am now a US Citizen. I have been in this area for more than 20 years and have worked as a CNA for most of that time. I have also had experience in caring for members of my own family who have had significant health issues. This has helped me to understand how important good care is for those can not care for themselves. Because of my experience and my history being a caregiver, my patients can feel of my care and concern and are happy to see me and allow me to help them.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
