Always starting the day with information from family member or previous staff. Assist, coach, prompt my client in all planned activities. Transport to appointments and other activities. Oversee and assist with all ADL's. Transcribe and document all activities. The hardest part of my job was I was sensitive to insult and out lashes.
I learned how to not take anything personally. People who have TBI's are more likely to have extreme emotional bouts to none at all. I learned a lot about neurology, and am still interested in the brain and how it effects us on all levels. The most enjoyable part was doing activities with my client and the feeling of friendship more than work.
Family environment, not a institutional setting, hours flexible
Unpredictable often startling angry outburst.Pay was'nt generous. Not much job security.
