I have been a full time caregiver for my mother in law for the past 11 years (she has dementia/Alzheimer's). In addition to my MIL, I have also helped care for both of my grandmothers who were in their 90s. Currently, I have an elderly companion that I play cards with and take grocery shopping. I love working with the elderly and hearing about their times growing up. My family has always been able to care for their elderly generations at home instead of a nursing facility. I enjoy helping other working families do the same. Whether it's staying overnight, drop ins to have a friend, take them to doctors visits, grocery shopping, or wherever they would like to go for a few hours. I do have to limit my services to around 7-10 miles from my home (Pelzer/Woodmont area) at the current time due to my current commitments.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
