I discovered my passion for caregiving at a very young age. I took care of my grandmother and later on my own mother. The rich conversation and honesty they had with me helped me better understand and love caregiving. I like the dynamic of caregiving. The fact that you get the opportunity to build relationships as well as learn to understand people and their unique characters captivates me. One achievement I am really proud of is raising my five children. I had so many challenges. I recall at one point we were all in four different countries. One thing about myself is that I like to smile. I am motivated by the simple fact that I am alive and that keeps me smiling.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
