Provided assistance to clients with daily activities such as hygeine to outings.
Pros: being able to take clients out on outings.
Cons: was a bit of a drive.
A typical day would consist of making meals for the clients within the home, providing hygiene, administer medication, doing laundry and general cleaning. Plus any outings for appointments/programs that they may have.
Learned to always be on the move and to watch my back, especially when alone with several clients.
Worked with a great group of people – more... who were very friendly and who loved their job.
Hardest part was the travelling around from one group home to another and not getting a chance to really know the clients.
The most enjoyable part was seeing them happy and knowing that you have provided the best care to each of them that day. – less
