I have been working in a nursing home for the last year and a half, as well as an EMT for the last six months. During that year and a half at the nursing home, I have realized many things about caring for seniors. To begin, I love the stories and experiences they are able to share with me. Seniors are able to give some of the best life advice. I absolutely love the fact that I am able to help seniors when their families are not able to devote time to them 24/7.
I am very passionate about caring for seniors because they truly deserve it. The majority of the time seniors are unable to complete activities of daily living without assistance, and I enjoy reassuring them that "I am here to help you in any way possible." From my experience in EMS, I have encountered a lot of elder patients who are unable to receive the care that they deserve. These patients are commonly falling, forgetting to take medications, or lacking personal hygiene. Seniors deserve the best care.
