I am a retired LOSS PREVENTION SPECIALIST who gave up my career to help care for my mom who was sick for years . After she passed away I realized this was my calling,took a CNA course at age 50 and became a personal companion/caregiver for an elderly women. Her family had employed me for 5 years,full time until she died at age 94 in 2016. I then started working thru Visiting Angels and I also remain at Brighton Gardens as a receptionist,the facility where my longterm client had lived. I fully believe each client I have is always treated just the way I would want my own Mother or Father to be treated,with respect and dignity.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
