Someone please give me some insight because I don't know what more to do.
Here's some background.
Started a new job with a private care agency. They assigned me to an 86 year old woman. Healthy as can be but she's a fall risk and her family doesn't wanna her bing by herself. She's also completely sane in her mind. I'm here Mon-Fri for 8 hours everyday. I do way more than my job description as far as house keeping goes. It started off ok at first but now she's rude, orders me around, demands the most ridiculous things from me, talks bad about me in front of other people, she called me her "Mexican maid." My mother is Mexican but I'm from the US, so....
Typing it doesn't sound that bad after a couple of months dealing with all sorts of people with different backgrounds, I've never been treated and abused so badly. I've tried unsuccessfully to get transferred to another resident but my agency says no. They don't understand how bad it is.
This has me wondering if I'm even cut out for the job. I was about to apply to nursing school
since I've finished all my pre-reqs. The only reason I can't quit is because I'm 19 weeks pregnant and need all the money I can get.
