Started the day by assisting residents with getting ready for the day, bathing, oral care, peri-care, dressing, assisting with meals, assisting with activities of the day. Assisted with lunch, toileting, vitals, ambulation.
Learned specifics for working with my residents, worked wonderfully with co-workers as well as residents. Hardest part of the job was the physical part of it. Lifting, dealing with combative residents. The most enjoyable part of the job was when a resident said something nice about how I cared for them. They really liked me and how I took care of them, and I loved being their caregiver.
was close to home, and good working environment.
i did not have to partake in the healthcare due to military, but the healthcare was not so good. i was glad i didn't have to partake in it.
