I decided to become a caregiver after taking care of my great-grandmother everyday before and after school. I enjoyed it knowing that I was able to take care of her and that I could make a difference in her life. I also learned alot while taking care of her. You have to have alot of patience and you also have to be very loving and compassionate to be a caregiver. It takes a very special person that understands the concept of taking care of people that are unable to take care of themselves. I am a people person with a positive attitude and loving spirit. I enjoy what I do and I have a passion for putting others first and making sure that they get the care that they need.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
