I am Jodi Segars, 29 years old and just moved to Florence, SC in February. I have been working with the elderly for 9 years now. My whole family including my mother, aunt, sister, and sister in law all work in the healthcare field. I feel that honesty, trust, patience, caring are all personality traits it takes to be a great caregiver. Growing up I was always with my grandparents, always wanting to help my mom take care of others. I put others before myself. The most I enjoy about being a caregiver is the one on one time I get to spend with the client, get to know them, their likes and dislikes, try to let them be independent as possible. At the end of the day, knowing that I have helped someone in every way I can and cared for them and did my best I can gets me through each and everyday. I feel accomplished to provide care for anyone that needs it, and I do it with my utmost respect.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
