I also work at a nursing home. There are some residents I let myself get close to and some of them are no longer just residents they are firends I am helping out. I feel I am one of the few people that work there that feel the residends are people not just a job. If I can make a few of them smile ecah day then I have done a good thing and I desreve the beer waiting at home for me. Also when they pass I honestly feel they are better off because the suffering is over so I go home and drink a beer to them and wish them well on there way.
