I got to be there for the end of some people’s lives when their families couldn’t be there. For some people, I was all that they had.
I love it. There’s nothing like it. You get to laugh with people. You get to be a part of their life, and I recommend it to everybody. Yeah, you’re wiping butts and changing briefs, but there’s so much more than that, that those little things just don’t mean anything. It is definitely a great job if you love people and you just genuinely like to help out.
It’s a great job.

There is some sadness like when people pass, but knowing that you were with them and made them cherish and enjoy their last few moments or years is totally worth it.
Guest Answer: I have enjoyed it It’s not been easy. It’s been a lot of work. Hard work doesn’t scare me though, so I would encourage people to do it if they really truly want to help other people wanna get into healthcare field, you know, for the right reasons and know that it’s it’s work and it’ll be hard, but it’ll be worth it and you’ll learn a lot and just never know what avenue. You know, other doors could open just by having that experience and just the lives that you can change, people you take care of and interact with may not seem like much you, but I’ve had people come back and send me cards or tell me or have remembered me from when I worked in the nursing home, I went to the hospital, same gentleman, asked for me at the hospital. You just never know the impact that you can have on somebody’s life.
Guest Answer: I have enjoyed my career very much.
It has been a really interesting path, and I didn’t I didn’t know what I was getting into at all when I had the opportunity to get trained through a nursing home. They covered the the fee for my training and then provided a job at the end, and I really didn’t know what I was getting into. And honestly, if I knew what I was going to be getting into, I probably wouldn’t have pursued it because it would have been so intimidating. But I just kind of walked in blindly and was like, oh, oh, here I am. And just kept going and and ended up really, really liking it.
