Working for ComForcare Homecare is very satisfying, in that you know you're helping to enrich a senior citizen's life by helping with activities of daily living, taking them to activities they wouldn't ordinarily be able to attend, and being there for company and companionship. I learned that being a senior citizen is not always easy, but I've also learned that seniors are a remarkable group of people; they've seen and experienced many things that we, as younger people, could always learn from. My co-workers are always willing to accommodate needed changes in schedules, and are always pleasant and compassionate. The hardest part of the job is when a client's health declines; the easiest part of the job is being with the client, interacting with him or her, and assisting with whatever appropriate needs they have.
working with senior citizens, learning about their challenges, listening to their stories and experiences
having to "say goodbye" to a client, salary is not competitive
