The reason why I became a caregiver is because I like helping people. The thing I like about being a caregiver is that I can help someone that is in need. A personal achievement in my life that I made was getting my cna and gna license. I have been a caregiver at the age of 18. I had to take care of my dad before he passed and I also took care of my grandmother that fell down the stairs and broke her ankle. Im a great caregiver because I love the fact I can give assistance to someone who may need a help and hand. I'm also a CPR instructor.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
