I lived with & took care of my grandmother for 2 years. My grandmother had Dementia and needed full time personal & companionship care. Taking care of my own grandma made me realize that Caregiving is what I enjoy doing for a living. For the last 3 years I have worked for Home Instead Senior Care in North Olmsted, until I moved to Youngstown recently. I spend time volunteering for Westside Cats when I can. I know how to use gait belts, lifts, bedpans, etc. I know CPR. I also enjoy cleaning and reading.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
