My name is Makayla and I am currently a PA student at MCPHS. So a little bit about me and my experience caring for elderly. I have over two years of experience. I am a certified nurses aide and for over a year I worked in a nursing home on a locked down Alzheimer s unit (most of the time). I absolutely loved this opportunity and those residents truly left an imprint on my heart. I would help with the bathroom, eating, changing, transfers, showers, etc. After this I had moved and needed to a new job. I decided to try home health, which is caring for individuals but at their own home, so very similar to what you are looking for. I would go to their house and care for them while also cleaning up the house, doing laundry, cooking, help with meds, and errands. I loved being able to be at the house because I found that the people needing care were much more happier as oppose to being in a nursing home.
