Its a critical work invironment as you are dealing Palliative clients but it is interesting and you will learned a lot to deal the feelings of every individual. You learned how to understand the feeling of a dying people and you will also learned to priorities things. My co worker are great...need to have a good communication to make more productive caregiver. The hardest part if your client passed away in your arm.

Un travail dans l'isolement
Préposée au bénéficiares (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONSeptember 19, 2013
Pros: rencontrer différentes personnes (clients)
Cons: l'isolement
C'est un travail difficile physiquement, car on doit soulever des clients et les installer dans leurs chaises roulantes ou autres,
C'est un travail qui se vit dans l'isolement. Il y a peu de contact avec l'employeur car les assignations se font par téléphone.

L'aspect le plus difficile, c'est l'isolement, de se sentir seule dans mon travail. Je suis une fille d'équipe, je crois à la coopération et à la collaboration.

L'aspect positif: le contact avec les gens, car ils sont souvent isolés eux-mêmes et j'ai côtoyé des personnes en fin de vie, et ce fut une expérience inoubliable.
