I became a Caregiver because I was blessed to have a great grandmother to live to be 116 years old and I aided in her care-giving. It gives me great pleasure to help those that are not able to help themselves. I like being a caregiver because I consider myself to be a nurturer. I was an Administrative Assistant for 23 years and that became very old to me and I said to myself let me go after my heart beat which is Nursing. Currently I'm in school pursuing a Degree in Nursing as an RN. I'm a wife, mother of 2 and a grandmother of 2. I'm an ordained minister and love serving the community of Philadelphia in healthcare.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
