I became a Caregiver because of the experience I had with my father when he was sick. I made up my mind that I must go into the health industry so that I can be of help to others. Being a Caregiver gives me the opportunity to feel the pain that those who are sick are experiencing. Therefore, I am able to help them at their point of need. It is a humanitarian job, so it takes those who are compassionate and like to offer hospitality. These qualities fit who I am so it allows me the opportunity to offer that to others. The personal achievement I am proud of is that I have received certification in CNA, GNA, CPR, Med Tech, including training in how to deal with patients with Alzheimer's, etc. Therefore, I am qualified to offer the type of healthcare services that I would like to offer. I am a hard working individual and I go above and beyond to ensure that I provide quality care to my client. I have no doubt that if given an opportunity to serve a patient, I would give the same quality care that I would want for myself.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
