Hi, I became a Caregiver because I have a love for people, and their needs. I started out at a very early age caring for my four sisters when I was about 10 years old. What I like most about being a Caregiver is that you get to build a relationship with your clients and give them a chance to build one with you too, and to see the joy and peace you can bring to them in the comfort of there own home. The most personal achievement I have made was when I was able to go into a client home and meet their needs where they were able to stay in there home and be well taken care of and the smile that would come across their face from being able to be at home would be worth it all. I Worked in this field for 15 years and as I stated I have a Love for people, I truly have one for working with the elderly because they seem to need more constant attention and I am just the right person to give that attention to them. :)
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
