You might also be required to take a cpr course before you get the job. For the most part, you might not have to deal with emergencies as your primary job will simply be to take care of an elderly or sick person but you cannot predict what can happen which is why companies always require you to be prepared.You will need to have a lot of patience and you will have to train yourself to deal with even the most difficult situations with kindness as you cannot quite predict what is going to happen. There will be instances when the experience can be extremely frustrating while at other times, being with people like this can also be very satisfying.
