Health Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 4 November 2015
It was the first job that allowed me to use my HCA skills and I was able to do a variety of jobs that are possible in that field. I did private home care which included light house keeping and cooking. Companionship was a huge part of the job. I also did medical escorts and went into long term care facilities to do companionship clients. I worked with the elderly by helping them do day to day activities and other clients had acquired brain injuries. The variety of clients I saw really gave me a lot of experience in the spectrum of HCA field
The variety of clients with various needs, so was able to use all the skills I learned in school in real world applications.
I was given the most difficult cases, they knew I would be able to handle them, that in turn burned me out.
