Pros: i am able to make my own schedule
Cons: i am at risk everyday depending on the patients mood
I do vital signs BP, test sugar level, cook meals, make sure medication is taking, cleaning duties, and assist with personal hygiene
I've learned to be patient, as well as how to deal with difficult people, look for signs of discomfort.
I work alone there is no supervisor at the house with me and my client.
Not knowing what type of patient I will be dealing with.
Knowing that someone appreciate everything I do for them, knowing that I made a difference in someone life everyday.
