Re: Working in the spitex

I suppose you are referring to the organization called Spitex. Right?
http://www.spitex.ch

I don't have any experience as an employee, but they do a marvelous job with my parents in law. Lovely women!

If you are empathetic and energetic, sound like a good job. Best of luck!

Re: Working in the spitex

no personal experience, but my aunt used to work for them for some years.
Apparently it's a very stressful job as she had to care for many seniors in her area. No time to chat and to really get to know them. Lots of administrative work to be done which didn't fit in the daily plans (which means she ended up doing it in the evening - without getting paid). Lack of leadership skills and bad attitude among the team leaders.

But that's just what I've heard. She was working in an area where many seniors live, maybe it's different elsewhere.

Now she works in an appartment-sharing community for elderly people and she loves it.

Re: Working in the spitex

The ladies from Spitex, who care for my Très Chic French mother in law think she is a GODDESS and seem to love her, and their work.....

Thank goodness for them!

I'll ask them, if I can, about their personal eperiences....and report back.
