I became a Caregiver when I first landed or arrived in the US and I was looking for a job and I met an owner of the Agency and she accepted me as one of their Caregivers then I took the Training and became a Certified Home Health aide. I am a Filipina ( from the Philippines). A 52 year old and have an experience of 5 years taking care of elders with Alzheimers, Diabetes, Parkinsons Disease and Stroke. I am very caring, loving, gentle, soft spoken individual. I am a College graduate in our country but I preferred to work as a Caregiver because I love to take care elders like I took care of my parents. I had worked in Nursing Home and Assisted Living Facilities. I can interact with my client because I can speak English well. I treated them as my own parents that is why many of my clients prefer to have me. My personal achievement I can be proud of is when I heard from my clients saying that I am a good worker and they refer me to their friends and family.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
