I have been doing caregiving since 2016. I have worked hospice end of life, and regular caregiving. I like to do caregiving for elderly because it gives you a chance to learn from the older generations. Hear their stories, learn different/new ways of life and thinking from their perspective. Yes care giving have it's ups and downs because we do get attached to our clients and when we lose one it's like losing our own family. We love the people we care for and they do became apart of us. Being a caregiver I have gotten to travel, met people from all over and learn and cherish memories a lot of people don't get to.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
