Ok job but no opportunity for advancement.
In Home Care (Current Employee), Sacramento, CAJanuary 17, 2015
Pros: very easy
Cons: pay and no management opportunity
My work day is pretty routine. I cook breakfast then do the daily chores. My daily routine consists of washing dishes, wiping down counters/appliances, sweeping/mopping, and cleaning the bathroom. I also do the shopping and prescription pick ups. This is a dead end job that has no opportunities for advancement.

Very rewarding job working with the mentally disabled adults
Caregiver (Former Employee), Fairfield, CADecember 19, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of cooking,cleaning,preparing meals,distributing medication,washing cloths and engaging in activities with clients indoor/outdoors. I learned that my heart is compassionate and I love to help other people who are less fortunate than others. The hardest part about my previous job was learning all of my clients behavior charts. The most enjoyable part of my previous job was learning how to care for the mentally disabled and giving them hope.

I like helping children and older people so I really Enjoyed the work environment
Special Needs Caregiver (Former Employee), Lancaster, CADecember 12, 2014
Pros: working with children, no over time
Cons: no room for moving up
A typical day at work consisted of getting the kids ready for school and preparing their meals for the day. Light house cleaning until they got home from school. When they got home I helped him with their homework, gave them their medication, and fed them their snacks.
The hardest part of the job only would be when one of the kids would act out but I usually calm him down pretty quickly. He was very close to me. the most enjoyable part of the job was when I helped them accomplish things and see a smile on their faces. I learned that all kids can accomplish goals and be happy, regardless of their mental or physical state.
