I have worked as a CNA for 3 years. In addition I also worked at Assisted Living. While employed there I met some great seniors and realized I enjoy working with seniors. Some just need light assistance with showering and preparing meals others needed a little more care. I worked with seniors with Dementia and Alzheimer's as well. The work was challenging but the rewards and friendship developed from working with these senior's was incredibly rewarding. My expected duties were as follows:
-Light Housekeeping and meal preparation.
-Transportation to hair appointments and Doctors visits.
-Monitored medication intake if needed.
-Help with personal hygiene and care
-Overall Monitoring of Seniors well being reporting.
-Reporting and incidences or causes for concern to the family.
-Keeping them company ie: going for walks, watching the news and fun conversations.
-keeping them company.
