this job was ok. basically i worked for a close family friend who was in her eighties and bed bound. i got paid by the company to do everything for her. housekeeping, running errands, helping her in and out of her wheelchair. i also kept tabs on her general health and provided the company with weekly evaluations. the best part of the job was developing a rapport with her.
the management at the company, however, wasn't great. at random times, all home care workers were strong-armed into attending these mandatory "in-service" sessions that were hours long, and just a regurgitation of what we were told in the job orientation, which was three sessions of 8am - 5pm. what we learned at orientation could've been condensed into one day, but was for some reason stretched into three unpaid days.
i wasn't always sure who my supervisors were. it seemed impossible sometimes to get people on the phone.
