PRIVATE DUTY RN (Former Employee), Middlesex, NJAugust 8, 2013
I enjoyed home care and found it to be very rewarding. Some of the most rewarding aspects of the job was being able to include her family in her care while educating them on her disease processes, medications, and any other concerns. I also enjoyed the autonomy and coordinating doctors, nurses, medications, and treatments. I continuously offered emotional – more... support to various family members. The hardest part of the job was saying good bye to my new family after she had passed. – less

Great place to work if you have a caring nature and want to work with others who feel the same way.
Behavioral Health Technician (Former Employee), Wilmington, NCJuly 17, 2013
Pros: great support team
Cons: not having time for own personal needs.
The day pretty much started out the same. Picking client up, dealing with the tears because client was watching favorite tv show and didn't want to leave the home. But I learned that a quick trip through the McDonalds drive thru for a simple hashbrown usually lessened the tears and some rocking music on the radio. You learned the likes and dislikes – more... of your client and how to deal with their emotions when they cannot verbalize them to you. There were many other people just like me you spent their days doing the simple things for their clients that they could not do for themselves, simple things that we take for granted like eating and drinking, going to the restroom, holding things , going for a walk. The hardest part of the job was trying to figure out what the client wanted, kind of like a baby when it cries. You feed it, you change it, and it still cries. It cannot tell you why they are still crying. It is the same for a handicapped person who needs or wants something and they cannot tell you. The most enjoyable part of the job was when you reached a goal. Brushing teeth or a simple "Hello". And it was great when you could share that knowledge with family members . – less

Caregiver (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJuly 10, 2013
I would say this job is very laid back and relaxed. You only watch one patient at his house and either work all day or stay over night. The patient is still able to care for him self as far as hygiene area, and he is a great person to talk to.

Private Home Care Assistant (Former Employee), Staten Island, NYJune 24, 2013
Pros: good working environment
Cons: no healthcare benefits.
Enjoyed being with my patients on a day to day basis, I get along with them pretty well. I love that I can take care of them and talk to them, to make their lives easier. The hardest part is when they get confused and would not want for me to be near them, most especially people with dementia but I deal with it and can't do anything about it.

Caring for an adult woman with Multiple Sclerosis in her home.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee), Stockbridge, MAJune 17, 2013
Pros: freedom to plan daily schedules, a great deal of variety with each new day. great pay!
Cons: no breaks, very few benefits, job security was not great do to the decline of her health
I helped a woman, P, who had numerous health issues (MS being the primary one), with daily living skills. Aided her in medication management, hygiene, transportation to and from appointments and social engagements, housekeeping and overall companionship. I learned a great deal about empathy and how difficult it must be to have to rely on another adult – more... for the things most of us take for granted. I learned a lot about the health field, as I was in charge of taking her to specialists and setting up appointments for her. My co-workers did not tend to work with me on a daily basis, but at times, shifts did overlap. They were all amazing people. Management was actually the woman I cared for (and a couple members of her family, who were involved from afar). I considered P to be both my boss and friend. My co-worker S, was the technical manager of the small group of staff. She could not have been a better person for the position! The most difficult part was seeing P's health deteriorate and her body become less independent. I enjoyed most the feeling of giving her the best quality of life I could. – less
