Pros: helping someone no one else would

the typical work day consisted of waking up at 4:30-5am to help her go to the bathroom. waking up at 7am to cook her breakfast, putting her through a light workout around 10am making her lunch at about 12pm, another light workout at around 2 or 3pm making her dinner at 6pm and tending to her various needs throughout the day.
I learned how to be an adult. – more... Management never held up their end of the bargain and constantly failed to uphold their end of things.
The hardest part of the job was changing diapers. No one wants to do that. The most enjoyable part of the job was the gratitude – less

Private Caregiver (Current Employee), Cleveland, GANovember 12, 2013
Pros: gaining additional insight to the elderly and human interactions

Private Duty Nanny (Former Employee), Staten Island, NYFebruary 2, 2013
Pros: free lunch.
Cons: no cons
This was actually my first job in the medical field. once i did volunteer work at Kessler rehab, i knew being in the medical filed was my dream. i worked wit an elderly man who suffered with Parkinson Disease. He was a very self sufficient guy for the most part. He could talk, walk, and shower him self. We went for long walks in the summer time just – more... to exercise. i made sure he took his medication on time an as well i always made sure his breakfast, lunch, and dinner was always prepared for him. cleaned, did laundry... etc. Me an my mom took care of this 80 year old man. Meaning one week she would work and stay in and the next week i would do the same so basically we rotated it. The hardest part of this job was just being away from home for a whole week, the most enjoyable part was getting to know my patiant and knowing him so good to the point he loves me like if i as his own grand daughter just like i love him like a grandpa. seeing him happy made me love my job 10 times more an coming to work was amazing just knowing i can be able to help someone. – less

Live-In Caregiver (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONMarch 12, 2013
It was almost a 24/7 job. The resident was a very sweet old lady!
That job first taught me,a bed bath,making an occupied bed and changing the resident while they are still in bed. It was a good experience,and I enjoyed her company,as she did mine.

The hardest part of the job,was watching her go. She passed away one morning in the home,in her sleep. – more... It was hard.
I will never forget the family ,who treated ME like family,and especiallywill never forget the resident! – less
