Some of my traits that are defined as being useful are that I am open-minded, caring, driven, understanding, and available to meet all needs of those that need personal one-on-one care. A few things that attracted me to become a caregiver are the smiles that I am able to put upon their faces, gaining the wisdom of the senior community about the choices I make in life, and knowing that I am able to help them stay out of nursing facilities and receive the care they deserve while continuing to reside within their own homes. The one thing I enjoy the most is being able to care for them and provide them an opportunity for a better life. The one personal achievement that I am most proud of is that none of my clients have ever had a fall on my watch. I have been able to keep them protected and away from the harm that falls could cause to them mentally and physically.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
