Working with the elderly.
Activity Aide/Volunteer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – January 20, 2015
As aides you're supposed to interact with the elderly. Ensure that they try and participate in singing, reading, playing soft golf, and what ever events that the staff carries. Depending on the hour I also help with feedings.
The biggest skill I've learned would be to have patience and compassion for the elderly.
I didn't have co-workers. I would volunteer alone. However, the staff was friendly and eager to help with anything that I needed.
