I became a caregiver after spending a couple of years helping care for my great grandmother who suffered from dementia. Although it was hard emotionally, I found that it was soul satisfying to be useful and help her through some of the most difficult times of what should have been her golden years. What I like most about being a caregiver is the ability to make a difference in someone's life. I feel a sense of a joy when I connect with someone I'm helping. My fulfillment is knowing that I'm more than an employee but a friend and companion. I'm compassionate, reliable, fun, detail oriented, hard working, patient and most of all I love what I do.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
