Going into different homes offered many challenges.
Pros: I self managed my responsibilities
Cons: no control when client cancels. lack of consistent hours.
My typical day had many mixed shifts and hours. I predominantly worked am to help all ages but mostly seniors get ready for their day. I realized early on going into homes had positive and negative issues. The positive was trust the families had in me to come in knowing I would be there and on time. The negative was, I never knew actually, what I getting into, until I showed up. It definitely was challenging dealing with hoarders, excessive animals, uncleanliness, rodents, the next shift not on time, and clients cancelling while in travel. There were strong relationships I created through consistent trust. Some clients only had the system and whoever showed up. Knowing I got that person through another day was my reward.
