Pros: lots of extended hours, personal time given
Cons: understaffed most of the time
A typical day at work is coming in and greeting the same wonderful people you see on a daily basis. I have learned patience and endurance with this position. My co-workers on the Unit I work are team players and we work together to get done what is needed for the daily care of our residents. The hardest part of the job is working understaffed, we try to give the best quality care possible no matter the situation. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the residents face when I walk in to greet them. That is the most rewarding, and to have the families thank me for taking such good care of their loved ones.
