Caregiver or hired maid?

Hi,

I recently started with a health company as a care giver. I thought I would be giving care to ill patients. My experience in past is with tube feeds, stroke victims, severe dementia, severe contracture, skoliosis, bed sores, Dysphagia ( swallowing problems) Seizures, etc...ets...

Well, I started and for past 2 weeks have been doing nothing but scrubbing floors, cleaning toilets and showers, cooking, ironing and accepting verbal abuse. Is this care giving?????? or has the job description changed and no one told me haha
Oh! and minimum wage with no travel expense or time for travel...am I expecting too much?

I'd like to hear about others experiences as a care giver
