I have been caregiving to someone close to me in multiple ways since I was very young. I learned quickly to make meals, clean the home, and provide any number of requests from my charge when his health deteriorated. I was capable of sorting out medications in the correct dosages at the correct times, reminding him to take the medications with food or drink as required, and being a comfort when nothing else was required. I have been doing this for over half my life, and have adapted as my charge's conditions have changed. I am bright, bubbly, and polite, as well as well-spoken and thoughtful. I can listen well and always ask to make sure tasks are completed correctly the first time around. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is the thought that I am directly impacting someone's life in a positive way. A personal achievement I am proud of is my ability to read and write quickly and eloquently.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
