Pros: always had work, open communicatation with manager & staff
Cons: was never able to meet other co-workers
I absolutely LOVED working for this company! I surely do miss them and my clients. My typical day would begin at 5 am. My first client was a 12 year old boy, diagnosed with Muscular Atrophy. Always so positive, cheerful and smiling. Aside from the Hoyer Lifts, Breathing machine, and chest compression machine, I had assistance from a home nurse. This patient was such a joy to work for. I had a split shift with him M,W & Friday. Morning consisted of getting him ready for school & maybe some homework. Evening shift was at 4pm. I would prep food for dinner, give him a bath. He is brilliant and want's to be a Video Game Designer. He has already created a Video game on Apple Phone's called " Monkey Rush" that the Make a Wish foundation helped crate for him.
I also had a full time client M-Friday 9am- 6pm. Advanced Alzheimer's Patient. She always had a smile for me and got used to seeing me everyday. We really had a great working relationship, she was like a grandmother to me. I also had a wonderful relationship with her Daughter. Never a dull moment with her. Although she might become combative or scared...not knowing her surroundings, she would always call for me or reach out to me. My best memory was taking this client to Butterfly World. I had never seen her smile so much and look so ALIVE. Laughing and giggles when the butterflies landed on her. Was glad to share this experience with her. I had lost my mother in 1991, she loved butterflies. So to share this with my client was extra Special & a beautiful lunch day with her.
