Very Profitable and Caring
Personal Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – August 14, 2014
I would perform daily living activities that my client couldn't perform on her own or needed supervision doing certain tasks. I would do daily house chores, grocery shopping, take her to medical appointments, food pantries, remind her of her medications, and provide companionship.
While working with my client for the past 2.5 years, I've learned that companionship and a positive attitude can benefit a persons life more than we think. I didn't really deal with management, only when it came to timesheets. I didn't have any coworkers that shared the same shift as me. The hardest part of this job was trying to stick to just the duties that are required of me. I tend to start caring and because of that I do more than I'm actually getting paid for. Which I don't mind sometimes, but then it gets to the point where they start to take advantage of it. The part I love the most about my job is getting to help people who need it and building friendships.
