I became a caregiver to help those in need of assistance at home or in a facility. I love people and helping them to recover from injuries or illness. It isn't always possible for family members to care for another family member or other loved ones. I'm very passionate about the work I do in caring for my patients and also for their families. I've worked in hospice care, long term care, nursing facilities, hospitals and private care and have over 25 years experience, from Alzheimer's units to med- serg floors. I love it all and I'm continuing on to higher degrees.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
