I am great at communicating with a resident with a tone that they are able to understand. I have patience and do not move at a fast pace that can throw the person off. What attracted me the most to caregiving is being able to help someone in need who can not have that care on a daily bases at home alone. What I enjoy the most about caregiving is seeing the person happy at the end of the day. Making them feel comfortable when they feel like giving up. I am proud that I haven't given up this wonderful opportunity. I have been caregiving for 3 1/2 years. It has brought my bond stronger with my grandparents.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
