I am able to treat people the way I would want myself or someone in my family to be treated. I believe that I receive so very much more in my position as a caregiver. My heart is so full of gratitude whenever I end my day. Everyday is different and you have to be ready to go with what's happening at that moment in time. I am very flexible and dependable in that respect. I love a challenge and I love helping others that need the help. I think it is important though that you let them know that you are there to help do whatever they need help with, not there to tell them what or how to do it, make suggestions and always remember that they are still thinking, feeling human beings.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
