My life has come full circle, it seems. I started as a caregiver in the mid 1980's, when my children were small. Once they started school, my path changed and I went to work at a university. God and life had other plans for me. After 15 years at my job, I decided to step down to care for a family member, who was severely injured. Since, 2013, I've had the honor of caring for others who needed that extra smile and laugh; I've shown empathy and compassion, and conveyed to them that they are worthy and loved. We all need this from time to time!
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
