Hello, my name is Kimberly Aristy. I am a caregiver at Country Meadows Retirement Home. I started out in dining and moved my way over to personal care. It was one of the best decisions in my life because I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I am currently in school for nursing at HACC. I would like to provide all my care, love, experience, and knowledge into helping elders for as long as possible. Each person comes with their own stories of how they grew up in times much more different than the current millennium. Being able to help someone who treats you like family is a beautiful blessing. I have been a caregiver for almost a year and I have learned a lot from the residents. Being able to care for at least 50 or more residents with each of them being unique and wanting different forms of help and attention definitely helps me take care of other people or elders within the same manner.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
