I am honest, dependable, and I am one who loves her job. I became a caregiver after caring for my grandfather who had recovered from cancer, had Alzheimer and tragicaly had pass within a 2yr span after having a fall and not completely recovered. The love and comfort in just the care and knowing that I can make a difference. I love everything about being a caregiver. Learning new people, being able to care for them, spreading comfort in people's lives when they may feel like they are alone. I love to be able to help out family members in being able to get away knowing their loved ones are in good hands. After over 10+ years in this profession, I can say, I always learn something new , which is so awesome me. Its always space for learning new things so I can be a better caregiver to my clients. Now, over the years i would have to say my greatest accomplishment in doing this type of work, is learning patience. Not the, "ok let's put a fake smile on my face untill shift is over" kind of patience but the real " I know where this attitude is coming from and it's really ok " kind of patience.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
