I worked 12 hours in a shift. I had night shifts as well. Every morning we started with allocation then we started to prepare and serve the breakfast for our residents. After breakfast we washed and dressed them until lunch.
I learnt a lot there. For example: how to assist personal care. I had a few trainings: first aid, food hygene, handleing training. I learnt to use a hoiste (full-body, standing)
We worked as a team. Sometimes we needed 3 health care assistants for 1 resident.
Our manager was a very kind lady. She always tried the best.
One shift was long with little breaks. We had to work very hard all day. And I hadn't enough time for a resident.
I really liked our residents and helping them.
