My basic days with my client on the weekdays and weekends.
Pros: feeling good about myself, making a friend, making a difference
Cons: mentally stressful
On week days, I picked my client up from her day program, took her out to eat, then to a couple stores. We would then just drive around while she listened to my radio or we would go back to her house where she would watch cartoons. On a Saturday, i would arrive at her house in the morning, we would go out for lunch and then to the stores again or to a museum or something fun like that.
I would have to say the hardest part of my job was the repetition. We did the same thing almost every single day that I worked. Over all though, I loved my job. I loved being able to connect with my client and feel like I am making a difference in her life every time I seen her. Leaving this job was extremely hard for me.
