What Does a Senior Healthcare Assistant Do?

A senior healthcare assistant is not the same as a nurse, but it does include many aspects of a nursing position, such as medication administration, team leadership, and more. A senior healthcare assistant shows companionship and support in the customers' mental and physical activities, such as taking them shopping or to the movies, reading and photographing them, or conversing with them over cups of tea.
