As a child I was always interested in helping the elderly. Sometimes my mom would have to take me to work and I would stay in the lobby of the senior housing building. I spent a lot of that time talking to the residents. During those conversations I realized many of them felt alone and sad. I chose to become a certified home health aide as soon as I could because as I grew up I realized many of the elderly suffered from mental disorders and illnesses or some had terminal diseases, etc. I wanted to be able to assist and support them. I wanted to be able to make their day a little brighter.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
