I have experience taking care of elderly patients. I currently work in patient homes. In the past, I have worked in hospital settings. I find taking care of people very rewarding.
Routines include bedroom, bathroom, beauty routines, meals, and light cleaning. The appreciation of quality care, respectful and polite manners, and a sense of humor goes a long way in making a person feel cared for and comfortable. It is important to engage clients with conversation, perhaps games (crossword puzzles, sudoku, word searches, etc.), discussion of events, family, or whatever the client is comfortable with sharing. I attended college for Nursing and have kept up with my medical experience through various jobs. I have worked as a medical transcriptionist and night-time hospital Nursing Care Assistant. I have also taken care of family members with health issues. Overall, I think my empathic disposition serves me well in taking care of others.
