Pros: great management and clients
Cons: difficult to attain desirable hours, and long commutes
Typical day at work included assistance with ADL's, light patient centered house keeping, meal preparation, occasional escorting to places, take to activities, reminding of medication administration, general monitor safety, and anything designated on patient care plan. I learned about the patient, designated tasks and certain disease processes and psychological and physiological impact. Management is phenomenal! Co-workers are supportive, informative, and inspirational. The hardest part of the job is the long commutes, physical strain, and attaining of hours. Most enjoyable part was getting to know the clients and developing a successful professional relationship with clients.
