This was a good place to start gaining experience in home health care and an how to manage work and life such as going to school while you see clients part-time. However, there were no benefits such as health insurance, dental, or even a 401k and no room for advancement with in the company.
While working for this company, I was exposed to many different types of people all having specific needs that attention to detail was necessary. In some cases you may work with a client with extreme medical issues like MS and can not maneuver well on their own. I would come and assist in their daily activities and personal care, as well as provide transportation and if there was a pet, they were also taken care of. I enjoyed being able to assist those in need, but the hardest part for me was loosing clients, whether by death, moving, change in health or change in company. It was hard not just because thats your form of income and your contracted, but because you actually build a bond with the people you take care of. I learned that with this type of work you cant have it be a primary source of income.
