Pros: going out on outings and seeing the individual smiles
Cons: not enough staff
I enjoy and love making someones day. Although my individuals was nonverbal seeing them smile or laughing is good enough for me.
A day at work would be getting the individuals off the buss, folding laundries, prepping dinner, feeding the individuals, bathing them, watch tv or play games with them until bed time.
I have learned so much with this job if you don't have a big heart don't bother. This job is all about companionship, making a different in someones life and it makes you see life different.
the hardest part about this job is when you individual is sick and they can't tell you cause their nonverbal.
