I am a new PCA going to college this semester and starting my pre requisite classes for nursing and also will work on my CNA. Right now, I am a new hire at a healh care agency so i can get as much experience as i need once i graduate from college. I have one week working with elders, my first day was helping a lady getting a shower and I did it pretty good. Yesterday, I walked into my new lady's house, talked to his son and introduced my self to him. I couldnt see anyone else except for him as i was walking in. I asked if his mom was at home and he said yeah she is there sitting in the couch next to you, however I did not noticed she was sitting there since i didn't see any movement at all, when I saw her i felt very touched, it was like seing my grandmother in her who passed away few years ago, my eyes watered a little bit and remembered i had to control myself, fortunatelly his son didn't noticed it since i was facing the 95 yr old lady. She was sitting there with her eyes closed, i got on my knees and started to talk to her but no answers from her at all. This first week was very touching to me, I am becoming more compasionate for people especially for the elders. I am blessed for being healthy and able to help this people. I am enjoying helping them and at the same time feeling sad to face suffering in them. What can I do to not involve my feelings at work? is there anyway i can see this as a only job and not as something that affects my feelings?
