Hello, How are you? My name is Alyssa. I've been a caregiver for about 5 years now. A little about myself; Growing up my life wasn't very sweet, I had to learn a lot on my own and take care of my siblings and myself very much alone. I've always had a passion for helping people I just had no idea how. After graduating high school I went on to start college majoring in Child Development. After receiving a part time job as a caregiver I realized how much I enjoyed caring for my elders. It didn't feel like a job to me, being able to get to know my patients, knowing that with me they are safe and being well treated, made me happy. Their smile made me smile, I knew this is what I was put on earth to do. So after analyzing my career path I went ahead and finished my general studies, and now I am taking classes to become an LPN. Being a caregiver is very satisfying being able to be there for them makes me happy.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
