Caregiver (Former Employee) – Albany, OR – September 19, 2018
I was lucky to have an amazing client. Their was alot of work involved, we did everything for him as he was bed ridden. The job varies by your client and they're difficulty. Their system changed a few times on how you entered your hours and for the longest time you didn't get overtime. It's kind of a hit or miss.
I enjoy helping the elderly, learning from their experiences
Senior & Disability Services (Current Employee) – Grants Pass, OR – September 5, 2018
Each of my clients have taught me different things, from names of trees to how to cook exotic foods. My clients become family to me and I treat them with respect. I take them shopping, to medical appointments, helping them with showers, doing their laundry, and fixing their meals. The hardest part of this job is when they pass away. It's like losing a family member.
Learning from my clients and being able to feel needed.
