When you first become a PCA, they train you to stay emotionally distant from your patients. I can't do that. I genuinely care about the people I take care of and grow unique bonds with each one of them. I do my best to go above and beyond for them and I will do everything in my power to make sure that they receive the highest quality of care. I have been taking care of people for as long as I can remember. My uncle is a quadriplegic and I've been helping him since I could reach the counters in my moms kitchen. Of course it feels great to help people, but the best part about being a care giver is finding those patients that become family and hold a piece of your heart.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
