I would be a great caregiver because im very passionate about helping individuals feel independent as much as possible. I also love to make sure the patient is taken care of to the best of my ability. Ive always had a passion to be a care taker, rather it be a cna, a surgeon, emt; all of those positions include caring for people and genuinely caring if they are okay or not. I love creating relationships with people who might not have a lot of people in their lives. The patient and care giver have an opportunity to create a bond that they cant create with anyone else. The caregiver is there a lot of the time making sure they are taken care of, make sure they eat or brush their teeth.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
