Would you have to clean the old people? I knew someone who did that, we met in the hospital.

Actually it s not my first choice but in turkey job offers are really limited and this job promising in turkey and also i like to care old people its our traditional ethic that thought by my parents

I volunteered for the job of assistant to the activities director in a elderly home. I loved it.

Taking care of the elderly is one of the hardest jobs you can do. It is sad, back breaking, fast paced and sad. Yes I know I said sad twice. It takes strength of character to do that job. Bless you if you do it. You must have much love in your heart for considering it.

It’s possible. i was a CNA in elder care some years ago. It’s very hard, but rewarding.

Sure, IF you are stable. I know some people with SZ who are full registered nurses and doing okay at it.
