Ca ingrijitor de persoana in varsta de 80 de ani, am avut activitati diverse pentru a-i asigura confortul. Sarcinile principale erau cele de rutina zilnica: o ajutam sa se spele, cumparam si aveam grija sa-si ia medicamentele prescrise de doctor, supravegheam permanent sa nu se accidenteze din cauza starii de sanatate. Saptamanal sau cand era nevoie, mergeam la cumparaturi fie singur, fie cu persoana din ingrijire, facand impreuna lista de necesitati. Eu gateam, spalam vasele si hainele si intretineam curatenia in casa. Doresc sa mentionez ca imi place sa ajut oamenii in general si sa fac tot ce-mi sta in putinta pentru a le satisface nevoile si a le usura viata.
The main duties and powers: As a caregiver for an 80 year-old person, I have had various activities to ensure comfort. The main tasks were the daily routine (ten hours per day): helping with the personal hygiene, making sure the medication prescribed by the doctor is taken properly, shopping for food and other needs weekly or when needed and making the list of necessities together with the person in care. I took care of the cooking, dish and clothes washing and cleaning inside and around the house. At first, my schedule was of 10 hours per day, but since September 2012 I also got a second job, so my work time has been reduced to 6 hours per day, in the same volunteering agreement. I want to mention that I like to help people in general and do everything I can to meet their needs and make their life easier.
