Since a very young age I have always been interested in spending time with children less fortunate as well as older people. I love to help and make people smile. I am completing my surgical tech studies instead of nursing because I really want to expand and experience new ways to help others.It wasn't until my Grandfather lost his sight in 2003 that I realized that caring for people, and making a difference in their everyday lives was my calling. The best part about being a Caregiver is Meeting new people.Everyday can be a challenge but your constantly learning.My last job I interviewed as one of the youngest and the Manager doubted me right then and their & I proved her very wrong as I proceeded.That was a big achievement to me.Its not your age that determines whether or not your fit for a job like this.I think you need the gift to resonate with people and make them feel comfortable with you and get to know you better. Home care is a personal experience and it can be incredibly fruitful if the relationship is more caring and personal.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
