I have always been the caregiver for family members. Friends & family recommended that I do this for a living. I enjoy just helping & interacting with all the clients. It is amazing how much you learn & also what you can give on a daily basis. I am proud of being able to have worked with the memory impaired residents. To just bring music, fun & laughter is so important to them. I am 57 years old and have always worked in customer service jobs ( call centers). I have been a care-giver now for a few years & find this is what I am meant to do for my future. My own children are grown and I find caring for others is so rewarding. It is not always an easy job but it is always different & a learning experience day to day.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
