If a nursing assistant loses her patience and worse still, loses her nerve when attempting to treat an elderly and frail woman or, let’s just say, a grumpy old man, then she has no place in this business. Honestly, she must just pack her bags and go. In this business, whose welfare comes first? Hers, or that of the old folks well and truly struggling to get up in the morning. She needs to start thinking what it could be like for her when she gets old.
And that is only if she gets to live that long. But with an attitude like that, who knows? Never mind her for now, let’s think about the old folks. Luckily enough for them a senior assisted living fall river center is ready, willing and able to attend to all their needs. This is not an ‘institution’ where old, sick and frail people go to wait out their last days. It looks so much like a house in your neighborhood. And yet it is a row of well-equipped and appropriately fitted apartments well-suited for physically and mentally challenged men and women.
And they are never alone. All good and well that the apartments have been fitted out but what is to be done when an old lady or man cannot get out of bed in the morning. What if he or she is really ill and needs to be attended to, fed and changed. It will be at the discretion of families and loved ones concerned, but the service comes highly recommended. Now, these nursing assistants will (or should) have all the patience and empathy in the world to deal with such trying circumstances.
They do this not because it is a job. They do it because they want to.
