At the age of 18, I began caring for my 87 year old great aunt who has Dementia. At first, I felt that I wouldn't be able to handle it because I had no previous experience but, caring for her changed my outlook tremendously. Elderly people are more than just \"old\" people. They are precious human beings who have seen the world take historical turns and have lived through what used to be and now live in what has become of the world. The fact that they have been blessed to live through many different times is all the reason we need to care for them in the most gentle way. Therefore, this had led me to have an interest in caregiving because no matter your age, everyone deserves to have someone to care for them despite the circumstances.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
