I became a caregiver because I believe that everyone, no matter what their age, deserves to be treated with respect and allowed to have a sense of dignity whatever their situation. They are a link to our past and it is so interesting to me how much they have to share if only given the chance. For them to have someone that truly cares about them and can make their existence better in their later years is really a wonderful feeling, not only for them but also for the person taking care of them. I have helped people that were housekeeping clients just because I was there and they needed me but it gave me a sense of fulfillment and I went on to go to school to be a CNA and I am proud of that.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
