My wife and I worked together in USA for 8 years. She bravely fought cancer for 5 years, and continued working virtually until she passed away. Since then I have worked alone. I Worked in UK for a while, and then returned to Hungary as I had some things to attend to and to reflect on what I want to do.

I had to take care of them: bath, shave, diaper, help them with getting changed, train them physically, give them massage, walk with them, giving them their medicines. I was also responsible for the administrational tasks of the care home, and organizing programs such as:playing cards, playing different kind of games, listening to music etc. I took part in food preparation, cleaning, washing and also in gardening.
