I've been a caregiver since I was a child, starting with caring for my aging grandfather. I am very compassionate, patient and enjoy people. I find people fascinating, and have always been a people watcher. I especially like talking to people, and hearing their stories of events in their lives. My most personal achievement I am proud of is learning patience and overcoming fear, irritation or other unproductive attitudes. Working with people can be very difficult, personality clashes and uncooperativeness can make my job as a caregiver challenging, but my compassionate nature allows me to carry on through the difficult days.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
