How To Get Paid As A Family Caregiver

People looking after an aging parent (or any other loved one) are often forced to leave their jobs or at least settle for a reduced income due to unpaid leaves and extra costs.

Do you provide care and companionship to others so they could remain in the comfort of their homes and live full independent and dignified lives? THEN YOU’RE A CAREGIVER!

Let me begin by thanking you first and foremost for your courage,  tenacity ,resilience and  Integrity providing excellent high quality care and companionship to individuals in your communities locally and globally. It is indeed a great pleasure and excitement to meet each and everyone of you. Although there are numerous articles and books written about caregivers and caregiving they are mostly  written by  self proclaimed experts who have never experienced a day as a caregiver.Many advanced practice professionals and caregiving business companies have much to say about this subject but not enough have included honest views and sentiments from actual caregivers. This is going to be a very different conversation and here’s why! I am a caregiver and felt this conversation should be narrated from active and retired caregivers. After approximately 1100 indepth interviews  working alongside and educating caregivers in two continents, I bring a wealth of experiences and first hand knowledge to this issue. I invite caregiver agencies, caregiving facilities ,nursing homes, Alzheimer’s assisted living facilities,hospitals and other Healthcare Professionals in and around this huge and most silent industry to join me for a long-overdue and bold conversation. This would be a place where caregivers are given a platform to come out of the woodwork and  share your stories good bad or indifferent so that together we can create a vibrant online community.We can affect change both for the caregiver and for the caregiver recipient. I have hope that the United States and other developed nations including those that do not have adequate resources would begin to value, respect, recognize and support caregivers for the value they add to the communities they serve
