Nice location to work but very stressing | Caregiver Review
It's a caregiver position (NOT cna/hha) so expect to do basic ADLs and do the dirty work. Because this is a memory care assisted living, you will be working with seniors with a variety of signs and symptoms declining with dementia, Alzheimers, hospice, and other things you will experience as every resident is different. The Med techs are the best there. Just communicate with them and they'll be more than happy to help you out when they can (theyre twice as busy as the caregivers). The pay isn't enough to live by itself so most of my co-workers worked two jobs or left because of the pay.
Upper management is very understanding but they do have high expectations of you so when you're rewarded, it feels great and self-satisfying. Don't expect them to communicate with you all the time, they're extremely busy and the only way to get in contact is if you give friendly reminders to them when you can. If you are easily emotional and cannot handle death or high stress, this job may not be for you. There will be sad moments you will experience when dealing with the residents.
TLDR: Great start if you want to assist seniors and start getting into the nursing field but extremely stressing for a minimum wage job.
