I come from a cultural and traditional family so the word "family" means a lot to me. I will treat my patients the same way I treat my grandparents; with love and respect. I have also worked as a CNA before and currently I am an Occupational Therapist Assistant in a nursing home who would greatly like to transition into home health. I would love to work as a caregiver at home because that is where people feel the most comfortable and safe. Although I am a therapist, I do ADLs daily with patients so I am very familiar with it. I love providing care and companionship to the the elderly because I know how lonesome they become as they age and how their abilities to carry out everyday functions decline. I would be more than happy to help them along the way and to help improve their independence in everyday tasks. I believe it is important for elders to have a hobby or activity they enjoy doing because it will give them a purpose and also stimulate their minds which will prevent further mental decline.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
