What Makes a Person Choose to Become a Caregiver?
What makes a person choose to be a paid homecare worker? You know family caregivers, they don’t choose to be family caregivers. The situation is thrust upon them, but the people who come to our place of employment are deliberately seeking to be caregivers.
Why? And those who are caregivers, what makes them choose to stay? Is there a difference fundamentally between someone who comes to us with paid formal caregiving experience and someone else who has unpaid informal caregiving experience?
