The "boss" has asked me to assist an elderly client with getting out of bed, ambulation, dressing, fetching pre-organized medications, and light meal prep. My concern is that although I do have nursing experience, zero training for this type of client assistance has been offered by this LLC company.
Since this question has gone unanswered for a while, I will chime in with an educated guess. That situation sounds awfully close or just over the line. It is not that what you describe (at least the way you describe it) would require special training. But, I would look at it from a client expectation stand point. If asked, does the client think or assume you have some special training or qualification to provide this extra assistance beyond the "house keeping." Is the client paying more for these services? Does the company provide a blanket insurance policy for you if the client was hurt (in a fall)?
If the company is just a house cleaning company, these additional services seem out of line. If the company is more of a concierge, specialty company, maybe it is okay if the company has liability protection for you.
The one task that stands out is the meds. If all you are doing is fetching a box from a cupboard with pre-sorted meds and handing the box and a cup of water to the client, that is okay. No different than fetching a cup of coffee. However, if you are sorting meds, reading labels, figuring out which meds the client should take, etc., that is almost certainly improper.
