My job makes the elderly happy, which also brings happiness to myself
I work at a nursing facility that takes care of the elderly in their daily lives. I decided to take on this job, believing that it’s a wonderful job that makes the elderly happy. I also have a grandfather and a grandmother, so when I interact with the elderly at work, I interact with them sincerely as if they were my own grandparents.
Before coming to Japan, I studied and practiced Japanese nursing care at a school in Myanmar. The teacher was strict at that time, and I thought it would be a tough job. However, when I started working in Japan, I found that it wasn't as hard as I had expected. I can enjoy my work, as everyone, including the people around me and the elderly, are very kind.
There are times I help the elderly at work when they take their medications. I’m especially careful that time not to make any mistakes. When I first started working, I had a hard time creating reports and records that I had to write when something happened. It was difficult because I had to write sentences using Chinese characters. However, I now can manage it because everyone kindly taught me.
