I became a caregiver as a young teen, following my mothers footsteps I became compassionate about caring for those who are unable to care for themselves. The most I love about being a caregiver is the bond you build with your clients and learning of the life they've lived. You get to meet so many different people with different cultures. A personal achievement I'm proud of is when I'm requested by my clients over others. I'm now 28 years of age, single with 3 wonderful children, living and working in the Houston area for years, certified as a CNA 14 years and currently in school furthering my education to become a nurse. I believe I'm a great caregiver who cares for those under my care.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
