Good home caregivers are those who naturally have an urge to help others. Often times they are people who have always placed a priority on helping other people. They want to make the world a better place and they do it with one home care patient at a time. Becoming a good home caregiver isn’t something that will necessary happen immediately, but if the basic qualities are there, those people can develop their skills over time to become great! Why did I become a caregiver? I became a caregiver because taking care of sick people that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it let me know they need people to work with them that care.I would take my personality growth in the last four years as my biggest accomplishment in life. I have never expected that through service activities, I had developed empathy and the aspiration to help those in need. I realized that even through small acts of kindness, I could provide support and care to those in need and improve their lives.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
