Home Health Aide in Rome:
"Taking care of elderly and their home."
Pros: I like the responsibility of passing out my resident's medication. I like talking to them and seeing their smiles everyday. I like knowing that they enjoy having me take care of them and their homes. I also like that they trust me with everything.
Cons: There are workers there that do not do their job so I would have to do it for them. My boss has called me into his office a few times complaining that I do not do my job right and that I am always on my cell phone; which is not true for me but is very true for other workers and they never got in trouble for it. I do my job the way it needs to be done, I get everything done that needs to be; I provide very good care to my residents and if anyone asked any of those residents, they would tell them how great of a worker I am and how much they like/trust me over others. I get picked on a lot even though I am doing what I am supposed to do. I don't like that after 4 1/2 years of working there, I only got a raise of $3.00/hr, especially because of how hard I work.
