What makes a great care giver is the compassion and love you have for the person you are taking care of or assisting. It is impossible to care for someone else if you do not have genuine love and passion for what you are doing. When you love what you are doing, you can easily pass that along to someone else. Also, if you have had the experience of taking care of elderly people you will know that care giving is more than just helping people. It is all about the desire in your heart to really help the needy and incapacitated.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
