This is in response to the letter, “My best friend is now gone,” by Cheryl Crisp.
A few years ago I worked in home health care. During our training we were told if we had someone in the nursing home that we should visit them everyday and at different times of the day. This way your person was always clean, unless they had just had a mishap. If there was some sort of injury, you noticed it right away.
I found that to be true. We never had a problem. There are a lot of hard-working aides and nurses that really care about their patients. There seems to be some aides just there for the money. I never understood that, since they have to clean up some nasty messes.
Please visit often and thank those that are working so hard.
