Duties include: personal care, food preparation, errands, med management, household chores, physical therapy, maintaining bladder catheter, wound care, personal assistant, monitoring vitals, helping with pet, companionship, transferring client (using belt and sliding board) and transportation. My training is just as diverse: 15 years with Beaumont Hospital older adult/ Helping Hands (continuous training and updating skill. I also went through Beaumont assistant nursing program and worked in post opt. I do research on client's conditions to stay aware of their needs. Caregiving is my nature. It is something I've done all my life. To work for eighteen years as a caregiver and be able to deal with almost any situation. you must be a self starter, structured, reliable, understand your client's needs, treat them with respect, guard their privacy, be trustworthy, respect their beliefs/ never imposing your own. However, things do happen that are beyond your control, but when you function by and within the above attributes, there's generally a way of resolving differences.
