Home health aides

I’m so disgusted. I don’t know how they do it in NYC or other states but I want to know how some of these people get work as health aides. I’ve seen people that don’t care about the people they care for. It is absolutely sickening!
I was coming to work and was in a car. Out of the corner of my eye I see standing on the corner three people. One person had Down syndrome another of the three woman was walking with a shopping cart. The other lady was smoking like crazy and twisting the disabled woman’s arm. The lady was obviously having an episode. I recognize it from what my daughter goes thru. The more the lady smoked the more poor woman kept pleading. I was horrified. I couldn’t stop I wasn’t driving.

I’m so horrified because in the event I can’t take care of my child this is what’s out there? Freaking crack headed people that don’t care? Since It seems so easy just to get a job in that field with minimal education?

My daughter receives respite and in home training. The respite worker just sits there. The other lady makes my daughter work and makes sure she gets exercise.

I don’t get how you would work in a field and not care. I know I could have done more for that woman today. It seems now a days everyone just keeps walking and talking and ignoring not getting involved. This world is making me so sick.
