With my love of helping people - placing dignity and respect for my elders, and my never-ending passion for learning into practice, I became a caregiver. My first ever client thought me how to take one's time in remembering where we come from while cutting the grass with scissors. (Note I lever let them cut the grass themselves, but they really wanted even blades - I wanted them to smile.) My person had Althtimers but didn't let that stop them from living as freely as possible. Currently, I help children who are wards of the state go into kinship homes with a family caregiver, but I miss caring for someone myself and would love to do so with an individual while I work with the children too.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
