I am a mother, wife, sister, and daughter with over 15 years of experience with caregiving. At the early age of 15yo, my first job was at a nursing home. I worked in the nursing home during my four years of high school. During that time my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimers, and my mother took her in to live with us. I learned a lot in my youth about patients, understanding, compassion and simply care for another human being. I've grown to become a kind, gentle, and hardworking individual willing to learn and grown as I can. I worked as a social worker for several years and chose to stay home and raise my boys a couple years back and being that all my boys are in school now, my desire to continue caregiving has not ceased. I love the feeling of being needed and I am willing to care for any individual who is willing to allow me in. I've been given the gift of service and sometimes the best medicine someone needs is simply just companionship.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
