personal care aide in a personal care home for the elderly

by virginia berry

"every day hands on experience". The residents largest complaint is that they want us to spend more quality time with them & listen to them. We have virtually no time to listen to them for extended time. I would like to change this, by setting up a new position in the home where the job would require a care aide to actually listen to and help with problems They are having... any feed back would be helpful on this. I am currently researching and writing a book about care homes...progress is very slow 3 years & still working on it as my schedule of work is so many days on site! We have no counseling except a few residents own. We have and are peer supporters, but most residents "peer" each other in here and only occasionally come to us for support! As we are kept busy all day with our work. I feel strongly that this is the most pressing problem we face here every day!
