A typical day at work would include greeting participants with a warm welcoming smile. Assisting in putting away their belongings and making them comfortable. Daily activities were a big part of the job. Creating new challenging activities that would stimulate the brain function. This would involve numbers, memory and focus games ect. Other activities would keep the participants engaged and moving. This would include dance, music, games, cooking, sewing ect. I learned how the body and mind reacts to stimulation. I learned the signs of certain illnesses that were not visibly but detectable by the attitude of a person. I learned the importance of compassion for others. There was nothing hard about this job. It was very rewarding and fun. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that you added to whatever quality of life the participants had left.
Freedom to be creative. PTO, Health benefits and great work hours.
