    I've been at my current job for about a year now and really excel at it. Caregiving comes naturally. I've been with my current client since the summer. I am really proud to be holding down a job, being good at it, and actually enjoying it.

    AND..

    Today I got a call from them informing me I have now gotten a raise. :)

    it really does. ive played a few roles at the company. all care giving roles, but different situations. when i first started i was only a companion. that entails basically sitting with the client and doing small things. i did a lot of facility work (hospitals, nursing homes ect) ... a month or two into the job my boss approached me about leveling up to a PCA. He said they normally do that until the employee has been with them a year but he kept hearing good things about me and thought id be a good fit for the role. they put me though the class on their dollar.

    as a pca i am basically a full care giver. i do everything. as a PCA i sat with one man with advanced MS, and the client im with currently, a 92 year old man with advanced dementia/alzheimers.

    I do really well with him, we are friends and enjoy each others company. You have to have the right mindset for the job, its not for everyone. im just cut out for it.
