Reflection: Do you think you would like to be a Home Health Aide ? Why? Why not?

I think that it is a really easy job but, I don’t think that I would do this because you start getting to know the person better , and you start getting attached to then and it will affect you a lot the day when they pass away . I also wouldn’t do this because It’s really not something that interests me . The only reason that i would truly do this is because I feel bad for those people who need our help , and we can be the person who they have fun with, or keep good company with.
