I became a caregiver because I enjoy the company of older Americans and the stories they love to tell. Health care runs deep in my family and when I noticed the satisfaction that my mother and aunt received from their experiences I wanted to be a part of it. I am most proud of the faith and trust that the gentleman I was taking care of had in me. He was a hard working man who made his fortune on his own and did not have full trust in many people. I am very proud of the relationship we formed. I don't believe in letting people down and always do my best to make others comfortable; and believe that I have faith in their ability to do things.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
