“I work in an institution for elderly people with Alzheimer.”
“What advice would you give someone who would like to work with Alzheimer patients?”
“You must have a lot of patience. People who suffer from Alzheimer sometimes have very clear moments. Within those clear moments the communication goes easily. It gets hard when they have their unclear moments then you need to give them instructions all over and over again. You get into to the most bizarre situations. It’s tough and the money is not good but the love you get in return is amazing. I absolutely love my patients. The other day I helped an older lady getting dressed and while I was helping her she kept thanking me. To see my patients happy makes me happy.”
