Enjoy working with the elderly. It is fun and learning experience.
Pros: free ceu's offered at times
Cons: having to work long hours at times.
I enjoy taking care of people and listening to them. You always learn to be patient and courteous. Helpful to families. A typical day is very busy. Taking care of residents, and laughing and joking with them. Support them as needed. Co-workers-workiing as a team is very important. Hardest part of the job would be trying to redirect several residents at one time when behavior issues occur.
