I was instilled at a cery early age, a love for geriatrics. When most children were going to after school care programs, I had talked my parents into letting me Volunteer in a local Nursing Home Activities Dept. Till they got off from work. After graduating High school at the age of 16 I was unsure of where to go with a career. I got my EMT-B certification but when a close family friend lost her husband and needed a caregiver due to MS and offered me a job I fell in love instantly with in home healthcare. I started Home is Maid. It started as In home healthcare that specialized in keeping a clean home with warm meals and great fun companionship but within past 4 years went more in the direction of organizing and deep cleaning homes mainly for elderly stuck in chaotic messes they were unable to get themselves out of. I have worked days off to sit with clients as they have passed and family was out of town as not to be alone. I hesitate calling these wonderful men and women clients or patients as they were and are so much more than that! I like to make this job fun for them by not only the classical In home healthcare but with more planned activities and organizational tracking.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
