I used to work in Nursing Homes with Individuals that had Dementia and needed help with their ADLs and I wanted to change, so I decided to work in this field. Working in this field, at the beginning, was challenging and rewarding at the same time. It was challenging because I had to learn different behavioral techniques to cope with the job requirements. Through the Individuals, it is deeply rewarding to get to see the world from a perspective that is different from my own. I am so grateful to these individuals for sha(anring part of their lives with me.I consider them my second “family.”
The guidelines that we have been given have helped keep us safe and keep the virus out of the house. I was new to the house when the crisis started and I am happy that I am able to contribute toward implementing those guidelines for the safety of the Individuals and staff.
