I have been a caregiver for 25 years in various types of areas. I owned a state licensed adult familyhome for adults with disabilities for 15 years. Adults were referred to my home by Health and Human Services. I provided a home and all aspects of daily living, social interactions, doctor appointments, medications, meals, household tasks as well as promoting the independence of each individual. I have also provided care for an elderly woman at first in her house and then in my house when her needs began to increase and she couldn't stay alone anymore. In addition, I have provided in home care to 2 children with disabilities and complex medical needs. I enjoy what I do because I love the satisfaction of helping to improve others lives. I consider myself to be a very caring, empathetic, dedicated, self driven person. I would think that those I've worked with would say the same.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
