I chose to become a caregiver because I like helping people and I felt this would be a way for me to make a difference in someone's life that needed it. What I enjoy about being a caregiver is simply just being there for someone and talking with them and getting to know a person, and listening to their life stories. A personal achievement that I would say that I am proud of in the time that I have been a caregiver would be when I encouraged a patient to do something that they thought they couldn't do, and feeding someone who never really eats much at all and helping them to complete their meal, when no one else could. As for me, well I am a hardworking individual who enjoys helping people and works the best of my ability, and a team player. Teamwork is important in this field, and I am someone that any employer and/or staff member can count on.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
