As a child I always dreamed of becoming a nurse. My grandma was my inspiration in my career. She basically raised me while my mother worked two sometimes three jobs to make ends meet. When I was a young teenage woman my grandma fell an broke her hip, this took a major toll on her health. At this point I took on the responsibility to care for her after my school work was done. She passed two months later comfortably surrounded with family, just the way she wanted to move on to heaven. Caregiving brings me the upmost joy, to see the joy on some ones face after giving honest compassionate humble care is the most heart warming feeling.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
