I was called to caregiving to tend to my parents in their time of need. I see caregiving as a noble profession that calls upon the finest qualities we have, as humans : empathy and compassion. Caregiving is not just beneficial to the patient but to the caregiver as well, and can even be a vehicle for spiritual awareness when utilized as a spiritual discipline. What distinguishes me as a caregiver is that I see beyond my patients' limitations and bow to the glimmering spark of life that has no age. I am an inspired listener to the story of their lives. Caregiving, by its proximity, is an intimate gesture, and as such, requires the caregiver to be fully present, emotionally responsive, appropriate, accountable, and without judgment.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
