I'm about to begin working in an aged care complex but have never been exposed to this sort of environment before. What is the usual method of bathing & toileting elderly clients in these facilities? Are residents usually able to take care of themselves or does the nurse usually have to help shower/bathe them? Can you describe a scenario?
I'd also like to know what is the most common thing you find yourself doing as a cna, obviously duties vary depending on the client's needs but is there one thing you find yourself doing more than anything else during a typical day?
Any other useful information would be much appreciated, I want to be as prepared as possible before beginning thanks
