I believe caregiving is a calling and is something I am meant to do. For the last seven years I've had an almost instinctive ability to provide compassionate, loving care to the seniors I've been blessed to help. I understand it is very important to the elderly to maintain their dignity and self respect. I also like that I can provide comfort to families knowing their loved one is being cared for the way they would if they could be there. Another aspect of caring for the elderly is that I have learned so much about life and history by talking, and more importantly, listening to them.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
