Caregiver/Certified Nursing Assistant, Marietta, GA - January 6, 2016
A typical workday consists of providing care to the elderly and disabled community. This included activities of daily living, preparing meals, light housekeeping, providing transportation to and from appointments, and companionship. I learned a great deal of patience, providing quality care, and how important it is to be good at your job. This position instilled a lot of self management being that we were responsible for maintaining our own schedules, putting in the correct time sheets, completing logs of care provided, and knowing what to do in strenuous circumstances. The hardest part of the job was separating one's personal life from that of the family that is receiving care. I most enjoyed putting a smile on my clients' faces.
