Hello I love what I do caring for others loved ones because I understand what it is like to be limited in what you may be able to do now, but not have that define who you are or were in your life previously. I spent a lot of time in hospitals and in and out of wheelchairs and with mobility issues as a child. Being young within the healthcare setting left an impression on me and I remember how some people treated me as if I didn't exist at all because of my disabilities while others were very understanding and treated me like a person and not an object. That was important to me then and it is inherent in every way I interact with the people that I care for. I meet each person in my care and each of their family members or carers where they are and work to help them feel secure, relaxed, and looking forward to the time they will spend with me as their carer. No matter their level of communication or engagement, level of health or decline, or cognitive ability. I try to engage with them fully and respectfully during the time we have.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
