Working with older adults in an ongoing learning experience.
Pros: learning more hands on ways to care for an individual and their specific needs.
Typical day (overnight shift) would be making sure the patients were sleeping and checking on them throughout the night. Ensuring they knew that help of any kind is available all hours of the day, even in the middle of the night.
Having additional training when needed and continuing training via the management always helps me stay on top of my game.
Having an outstanding crew working along side for issues that were beyond one tech always left me feeling that I was never alone, no matter how difficult a situation may of become.
Hardest part of this particular job would of been not being able to reach an individual who needed help as they were in denial they had any issues.
The highlight of my day, each day, was seeing each of the patients smiling and saying good morning to me and their peers.
