I chose to become a caregiver, because I always thought it would be the perfect job for me. I am patient and understanding. I have experience working in calm environments and in hectic environments. I have been a caregiver for four years, and what I enjoy the most is the personal and sometimes lasting relationship I've built with my clients. I still communicate with many today, that I no longer work for. While I am still a work in progress I am proud that I am still able to return to school despite the odds against me. I am a mom to wonderful 3 year old, and it has been hard going back to school. It might be beneficial to note that I also have experience working with Able bodied children, newborns to toddlers, as well as mentally and physically disabled children.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
