Patience is my best trait when working with patients and helping them overcome any challenge or question they might encounter and by doing this the patient will feel comfortable by demonstrating active listing and genuinely caring and showing interest in all their needs. I like being a caregiver because i was able to help take care both of my grandparents and working in a hospital setting really showed me how much help the elderly need. As a caregiver i will meet any issues the patient might need, show compassion and listen, help with their needs which makes me happy that i'm there to help. Im proud of one of my achievements and it was helping a patient that was choking with their food. I was able to preform CPR and dislodge the piece of food which saved his life.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
