Although I work part time, they treat me just like a full time position.
Pros: feeling good after leaving each home that i made a difference in the life of someone, i enjoy working with people, being able to just be there with someone to talk to and open up and discuss their fears, children, their life, and what they like to do.
Cons: on call status doesn't provide many hours of work.
I work with elderly people in their homes to assist them in staying in their homes. My duties vary at each home. In one home I would do personal duties such as giving baths, dressing, personal hygiene and meal prep. In another home, I would do housekeeping chores, laundry, making beds, provide healthy meals, and provide needed socialization.
