I became interested in being a caregiver when I was a child and my grandmother used to take me to work with her at a nursing home. I was the primary caregiver for one of my many patients for 11 years and he was a quadriplegic. I did hospice care with my grandmother for 3 months. Also, my 15 year old was diagnosed with diabetes in June 2022 and I've been his primary caregiver since then and have controlled it to the point where we have had no visits to the hospital at all. I am very passionate about helping others and truly believe that is my purpose in life.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
