Hello I'm 22 and sooo frustrated what career I want I know I love the geriatric population because I used to work in a nursing home. I used to love to talk to the elderly and hear there stories.

- How much do you make either in a nursing home or hospice care? hourly & yearly?
- What does your typical day consist of? What types of things are you doing with the elderly?
- Pros/Cons of job?

I feel I'm a really caring person and want to help. However, I also want a family some day that I can support. I know everyone says "social work is not a career if you want $$" but I was looking on the internet and found that geriatric social workers get paid around 40,000-50,000 so I don't know why people say that, to me that salary doesn't sound so bad? Not trying to sound selfish but I do have dreams of having a family, go on vacations and maybe even work part time If I can find a spot that pays decent. But I do love the elderly. I know nursing isn't the field for me either/can't draw blood.

Any advice/Opinions for this career?
-Thank you :)
