Caregiver (Current Employee), Hawthorne, CAAugust 28, 2015
Working with others is something that I enjoy doing. Helping others is also something I emjoy, so being able to do that everyday is a good feeling for me. A typical day at work for me is that I come in check on my client to see how the night was for them. Once we get the day started it is smooth sailing

care provider (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAAugust 19, 2015
The most enjoyable part if the job was to be with children. I love working with kids, it's one of my favorite things to do. i cant' really say what a typical day is because every day was different. The hardest part i would say was trying to get the kids to cooperate at the same time.
