Sitter/Caregiver (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 23, 2017
The best part about this job is coming to work knowing that you can make a difference in someone life. Working at this job I learned how to be patient and humble. Being that my work or job is private duty management is not something one would have to worry about. The hardest part of this job is leaving work and not knowing whether or not your patience will be there. The most enjoyable part of this job is knowing that you make a difference in someones life.

Rewarding job helping a person stay in there home instead of going into a facility
worker (Former Employee) – Scottsville, KY – August 26, 2015
Took care of elderly couple in there home. The wife was confined to a wheel chair & husband had dimentia & seizures. You performed light cleaning, laundry, prepared meals, ran errands, make sure medication was taken as doctors prescribed, assist with personal hygiene needs, shopping, any demands couple needed to help them maintain there way of life. With a person with dementia you had to talk them thru confused state of mind because to them they thought it was reall. With staying calm & communicating with them he would come back into reality state of mind. It became demanding at times but rewarding because I knew I was helping them stay in there home where they built a life together & raised there daughter in.
Learning about a history in time before I was born from people who actually lived it
Getting attached to wife when she passed on feeling the loss
Caregiver (Current Employee) – Munster, IN – June 26, 2015
Fantastic co-workers and overall very busy days with the clients. Some of the assigned clients difficult to satisfy. Hardest part of the job is knowing that your are helping the client with their end of life care and eventually lose them. I am seeking a job that is more positive and upbeat!
Enjoy wearing scrubs.
No breaks, no set lunch or dinner, no advancement, very depressing atmosphere.
Caring Senior Service (Former Employee) – Kerrville, Texas – June 17, 2015
Did mostly in home care for elderly patients including preparing meals and serving them to the clients, hygiene care, and companionship. Office team leads often able to work around schedules. Sometimes required longer stays then originally scheduled for.
My basic days with my client on the weekdays and weekends.
Care giver (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 7, 2015
On week days, I picked my client up from her day program, took her out to eat, then to a couple stores. We would then just drive around while she listened to my radio or we would go back to her house where she would watch cartoons. On a Saturday, i would arrive at her house in the morning, we would go out for lunch and then to the stores again or to a museum or something fun like that. I would have to say the hardest part of my job was the repetition. We did the same thing almost every single day that I worked. Over all though, I loved my job. I loved being able to connect with my client and feel like I am making a difference in her life every time I seen her. Leaving this job was extremely hard for me.
feeling good about myself, making a friend, making a difference
