If you like taking care of elderly people, then this is the job for you!
Health Care Aide (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – 19 October 2014
Even though I did not get a full experience of a Home Care Aide, but I got to experience the career. A typical day at work would be working at home and taking care of my grandfather. A typical day, I would have to make sure he is fed, cleaned, and taking his medication. Pretty much taking care of another human being. The hardest part of the job is going through the disgusting part. I don't want to go into details, but taking care of what you finish in the bathroom, especially if you don't even make it, is troubling. Even for an 100 hour limited job! The most enjoyable part of the job is that I got to work at home. I didn't have to travel far and I could concentrate on my classes. As a final note, I only took care of my grandfather, so I didn't experience the full job of a Home Care Aide, because there are many other patients to look after.
