I became a caregiver because I love providing home caregiving services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people so I know I am doing the right thing. What I like about being a caregiver is the compassion and bond that is established between client and provider. The feeling knowing that you are making a significant difference in someone's life is unfathomable. A personal achievement I am proud of would be the first in my family (as well as extended) to go off to college (The Ohio State University) and establish and begin to develop a life for myself while exploring new places. I am intellectual, enthusiastic, humble, caring, mindful, respectful, honest, and hard working.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
