Depend on a patient needs care everyday, and I can learn to perform care, or I can learn to work with my supervise, nurse, and my co-worker. I think It is not the hardest part of the job because I work under supervision.The most enjoyable part of the job when my patient is happy.

CNA/Home Care Aid (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 12, 2015
helping the client/s with what they need to do to get up and ready for the day. I learned that you don't work for family/friends it does not turn out good. the management helped me when I had questions but ripped me off a lot with my pay checks. never met any of my other co-workers. the hardest part was the clients yelling at me and telling i wasn't doing my job. the enjoyable part was helping somebody in need.

Caregiver/Personal Assistant (Former Employee) – Crete, IL – July 9, 2015
A typical day at homecare is not knowing if the person you care for is going to wake up or not. Or what kind of mess they made while you were at home.You got to prepare your self for the worst. I've learned to care for other's to make sure they have what they need. Always make sure that you and the person is in safety environment.
On a good day is taking them out to the store and getting them some fresh air.

Volunteer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, Washington and Kaneohe, Hawaii – June 5, 2015
Care included daily routine dispensing of meds and meals. Offered support with all personal care; bathing, oral care, and toileting. Handled daily living tasks such as general house work, shopping, cooking, and laundry. Offered companionship and comfort that someone was there and available with emotional support. I learned through this experience how precious life is, the value of compassion, and the understanding of the emotional rollercoaster one has giving up their personal independence as they prepare for end of life. Peace Health Hospice assisted me three days a week with the in home hospice care, and the staff that came taught me a lot about how to best perform palliative care. The hardest part of this job was the physical heavy lifting, but also was the emotions that came with watching a loved one deteriorate. The most rewarding aspect of this job was being a part of the process, and doing what I could to make them feel comfortable and loved.
