Pros: great benefits for full-time staff
Cons: being mandated if people call out at the end of the shift
A typical day at work consisted of cleaning the house, changing and cleaning the individuals as needed throughout the night, assist them in the bathroom, and with getting ready in the morning. I also made their breakfast, got them ready to go to dialysis, day program, or any other appointments scheduled for the morning. I have learned a lot about how to diffuse a behavioral situation, how to create ISP goals with the individuals, and have really enjoyed getting to know the ladies on n individual basis. Management has always been available when needed, and the other staff are hard workers who are always willing to work together to get the job done. The most difficult part of this job has been when the individuals have gotten sick, it is concerning when they are in the hospital and we all worry about their condition.
