caregiver (Current Employee) – Berkley, MI, Birmingham MI, Warren MI, Oak Park – November 11, 2015
fun and different often,things are a little different with each client, I enjoy their pets. I like to stay busy, and I enjoy talking with them as they have such wonderful stories. I run errands, banking, groceries, take pets to the vet. Organize paperwork, bills, assist with paying bills, try to interest them in some entertainment, try to engage them in some chair yoga or just go for a walk on a nice day. I don't have co-workers, the people I care for have just me from the company for the most part. I don't care for when they go to the hospital or otherwise not at home as I don't work I don't get paid. Sometimes the hardest part is finding where they live and I don't like finding a client that has died, it's a bit unnerving. I don't care for giving showers or cleaning up accidents, but, of course, I do as it's part of the job.
No supervisor, meet different people. Have a few laughs with the clients
Unreliable schedule, no real lunch break. Don't want to clean house or bodies anymore. Pay is low
