Pros: coworkers, never a dull moment, always busy, time passed so fast
Cons: short breaks or no breaks, coworkers, management staff, short staffed
A typical day at work would start off pretty hectic depending on which shift you're on. We were always super busy, if anything running up and down the halls trying to get everything done that we needed to in the extremely short amount of time given to do those. We worked the assisted living part of the retirement home. You would always be running everywhere trying to get everything done. The at the end of the shift you would have to sit down and do charts and then shift change. I learned how to be a great caregiver, also how to give medications, along with Alzheimer's and dementia training, and more medical experience. The hardest part of my job was always running around, not getting along with all of your coworkers, all the drama that tended to happen there, and never having enough time. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with my residents, some of my coworkers made my shifts easier due to working together, and how there was never a dull moment at work.
