My mom was diagnosed with MS 25 years ago and I then decided to go to school to become a CHHA. I joined an agency and loved it. I cared for people with disabilities, diseases and just the elder that needed assistance with everyday living. I felt wonderful and loved going to work everyday. I then needed more steady work and income and the agency was unable to do that for me so I decided to go to business school. I worked as an administrative assistant for many years then starting my own pet sitting service. I Havre always wanted to go back to caregiving, it is what is in my heart and I just can't see any other job that is more rewarding.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
