I had this job over 7 years ago
caregiver (Former Employee) – Bend, OR – September 8, 2016
I worked on the NOC shift, so I did not have much interaction with the residents except when I was getting them up for the mornings.
My shift starts with reading the notes from the previous shift, and then gathering their laundry, which we do on the NOC shift.
i did not interact with management much, except when something goes wrong.
My co-workers were very much the standard everyone who is hired to work with. If they do not like you, you are out a job. They made the rules,and everyone else had to follow their suggestions. This included the residents too.
Trying to get along with your co-workers.
Interacting with the residents. Some did not have family close by, and never had visitors. I would try to make their day a little brighter. The same could be said for the residents with families nearby. They only came to visit during holidays, or their birthday.
