I started working at Catholic during first shift. My main job was to pass medication to the residents and help them with their activities of daily living(ADLs). We would get them up and ready for the day. Serve them breakfast and lunch and do activities with them.
I had to change to third shift because I needed to be home to take my daughter to school in the morning. My duties on third shift includes light housekeeping, doing laundry, toileting the residents and passing medication. I get a long well with my co-workers because I am a team player and always put the residents first. The hardest part of the job is losing one of my residents. You get to know them and they become like family. The most enjoyable part of my job is when the residents appreciate and say thank you to me. when they smile at me and tell me they love me. This means a lot to me because I work in a memory care unit and the residents have dementia. so when they appreciate me I know its because I have taken good care of them.
