As a former minister, caring for others is an important part of my ministry. Our senior citizens are sometimes not given the attention they deserve. I believe companionship and care are important to their well being, and I enjoy being able to provide these services. My former client has Alzheimer's disease and was recently placed in a nursing home. A listening ear and sense of humor made this position an easy job to fulfill. I am a minister (retired) I spent over 14 years in various positions of the ministry including pulpit, women's club, youth club and disaster services. I also served several years at a desk job for a non-profit agency. After relocating to this area, I became a massage therapist, following which I was introduced to the caregiving service, that I provided for seven years until it was necessary to place my client in a nursing home for 24 hour care. I would like to meet and serve another lady or gentleman and look forward to continuing this ministry.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
