Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Natchez, MS – October 25, 2013
From the time I clock in at work which is 7a.m. I was busy with my residents. I have learned so much working for the Magnolia House as far as patience, better understanding in taking care of the elderly. Management was okay my co-workers was easy to get along with we worked as a team. The hardest part of job was having one of your residents to die because you get so attached to them. I really enjoyed taking care of the residents and visiting with them when time allowed me to.
Getting to know the residents and family members as well as working with co-workers.
A typical day at this job would be me going in and starting off checking on the patients. I, then would help whoever needed help bathing. After this I would cook their meal. I, then would put new sheets on the patients' beds. After this I would feed them snacks and turn a show or movie on for them to enjoy.
Interaction, gaining positive skills, met new people with special disabilities and how to care for them
Very disorganized, no healthcare benefits, underpaid
