I have worked within the home healthcare field for close to 18 years. Working with the disabled I'll and elderly has been my passion. I am not just a caregiver but a friend and often like a member of the family. I worked as a companion care and a home health aide while living in Michigan before moving to Oklahoma and obtaining my certification as a nursing assistant, home health assistant and long term care assistant. Following my certification I became an employee of St. John's medical center of Tulsa where I worked on the stroke unit for 3 of the nearly five years I was employed there before transferring to the woman's surgical outpatient unit where I worked until i decided, due to personal reasons that can be explained during interviewing, to resign and work as a contracted in home care provider.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
