Fun and Safe Environment to work
PCA Personal Care Assistant (Current Employee), Fall River, MADecember 10, 2014
Pros: good client, enjoyable work days.
Cons: early hours, late nights
The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to work with people. I enjoy being around people; and I enjoy talking to them about their problems. I'm a good listener and I don't judge anyone's problems at all. While I do my hours I enjoy talking to my patient about his problems or the activities and events that are happening in his life. He is a enjoyable person to talk to and actually asks about my life as well.

being able to work closly one on one with each client
PCA Personal Care Assistant (Current Employee), Halifax, MADecember 1, 2014
Pros: working one on one and getting to know the client and just making them happy.
Cons: knowing they are not going to get better
take care of the client with everyday activities. bathe, dress, change bedding with client still in the bed. Meal preparation, cooking meals and cleaning the house.
I learned how to look at life in the way the client does and become not just a companion but a friend.
I didn't have co-workers. I worked alone.
The hardest part of the job was seeing the 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.

that job help me to get another environment,because of the team work.so in one word it wasn't fun at all
Direct Care Staff (Former Employee), White Plains, NYSeptember 24, 2014
a typical day of this were when we go out with the consumer's and we also have free movies too, if we go to a movie theater. What I learned from that job, is to treat the human being as everybody; even though they have a disability, because ,we all are the same the hardest part in that job was the team work were not corporate. I did not really have any enjoyable in that job, because that seems like everybody were looking for their interest, but they don't know what team work is .

CNA/Caregiver (Current Employee), Brockton, MAJuly 9, 2014
Cons: not much benifits
I personally love my job, my typical day is going to the patient and giving them 1:1 personal care that they need. the hardest part about the job I would say is getting attached to the patients and forming and friendship with them since your with them daily and if something happens to them it can affect you a little bit, the most enjoyable part for me about the job is knowing I got to make a difference in someone's life and by me going there and helping them is making a difference in there life,

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, who are dedicated like myself, to taking care of – more... 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
