I truly believe to be a good caregiver you need to know what needs to be done. I have the energy, the capability, and the drive to take action. I make it a priority to always be aware of the physical and emotional needs of my clients that are in my care, I try to take notice and be observant when something is \"off,\" and not to ignore a problem or unhealthy changes happening with the client, and give up until we figure out how to address the problem. I believe our elders need caregivers with these traits, because sometimes our clients can't clearly communicate themselves, or they simply don't know what's wrong. As a caregiver I need to possess the courage and tenacity to make sure my client receives the best of care and always include the family and physicians and whoever else is part of the care team.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
