A typical day for me involves the care of elderly residents , be it working on the floor, attending to toileting , feeding , getting ready for bed, changing continence aids, or if I am doing the medication round, I can have up to 54 residents to administer medications too. They job can be physically taxing some times, due to such tight schedules which require exceptional time management skills or you would not be able to complete your work load. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with the residents it is very rewarding and makes it all worth while.
Nice residents, good work mates, located close to home.
unsociable hours, not enough time to spend with residents.
