It takes a special person to be a caregiver, you have to like what you do, have respect for the elderly. Provide a personal touch to senior care. I took care of my grandmother and my ex-grand mother before they passed and I worked in a senior living facility for over 8 years and just enjoyed offering them a hand or helping when I could. I enjoyed being there for an elderly person that just need that extra hand someone that going to look out for them and not harm them. I remember telling my grandmother that I want to be a nurse but end up working in health care taking care of the elderly. Not a nurse but doing the same thing taking care of those in need!!
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
