I became a caregiver because my brother has Autism and I had a friend who was working with a client who needed some extra help in that area. I began to love taking care of people and soon started to work in a facility with Assisted Living/Memory Care residents. I loved getting to know them and taking great care of them made me feel good about what I was doing. I am very proud of the quality of care and respect I give every client and being able to excel in what I do. When I left my most recent Caregiver position, I had moved into the Lead Med-Passer position and was looked up to by most if not all of the staff as well as the Nurses I worked closely with. I have been out the the healthcare field for a little over a year and I regret that time away. I really am supposed to be caring and serving others and want to have that opportunity to do that again.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
