I am interested in becoming a caregiver because I enjoy helping people. I also enjoy making people happy and helping them achieve things that they might not be able to without help. Most of my experience in caregiving is with children but I did help take care of my great-grandma who just recently passed away at the age of 99. I also helped take care of my grandmother who has Alzheimer's until recently when I moved to San Antonio. In my past experiences working as a caregiver for children, my co-workers told me that I worked really well with the children and the children seemed to really like me. I make sure to form relationships with the people that I care for and not just few it as something that I have to do.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
