The hardest part of the job was seeing the – more... client sick or knowing they are not going to get better and that the only thing that can be done is make them as comfortable as possible.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to see the client happy. – less

My typical day at work would be busy, long but not strenuous. What I have learned from working with this company is healthcare is important, the ones you take care of is important, and there are going to be challenges in the way but I have learned to have lots of patience. Management is really good, they have a great communication team of individuals, – more... who are dedicated like myself, to taking care of others in need. The hardest part of the job was dealing with patients who won't and didn't cooperate. there were times patients wouldn't take or let me administer their medicine, change their clothes, refusal to eat or drink at times.The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know your patient, who they are, what they like, what they dislike, having a great realationship with your clients and or patients. – less
