I started working as a caregiver when I was 18 in a hospital. It was hard work, but it taught me a lot. I knew from then I wanted to work with people, but in a more relaxed setting. I now work as a medication tech in a memory care facility and I feel like I've found my calling. I love going to work everyday. I feel like there is no other job I was meant to have. I love taking care of people and making a difference in their lives. I'm also in college for nursing to be able to continue what I'm doing for the rest of my career.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
