I help geriatric patients live as independently as possible by assisting them with household chores, bathing, meal prep, feeding, errands, and accompanying them to appointments.
I have learned to be more patient, as some of my patients have mental disabilities.
Management is really understanding, but you don't really see them, as it is mainly just you and the patient.
I can't say anything about my co-workers as I have not met any of them.
The hardest part of the job is creating a routine with a patient.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the bond and friendship you create with patients.
Great working relationships with people. Independent and flexible schedules
