I am from CT and used to work for Companions and Homemakers in Enfield CT. I found it very rewarding. Just to see someones face light up when they see you warmed my heart. At first, it was a part time job to get me out of the house , but then I really started to click with the elderly. I loved listening to their stories and actually just visiting with them. I left work feeling like I accomplished something...I really did. I made someones day by just being there for them. If they had a Dr. appt. or just wanted to go grocery shopping I would take them. I found working with the elderly so rewarding.
