In this position I took care of an elderly person. I started just as a home care taker but in 3 months I was given the responsibility to take care of the individual as well as the home. The position entailed taking care of and assisting the individual in all aspects. However, the biggest impact was the improvement related to the social aspects of the job. Through daily conversation, trips to the park, introduction to other elderly people, the individual I was taking care of started to interact more, smile more, eat better, etc… He became more alive and his willingness to live and enjoy what life has to offer increased significantly.
