Challenging but enjoyable
A typical day at work would entail getting service users up and out of bed, supporting with personal care, medication, breakfast. Daily activities such as groups which were on within the unit such as art group, music group etc, or going shopping, attending doctors appointments, going on outings to the cinema or out for dinner.
The hardest part of the job was probably when we were short staffed and had to rush around trying to get everyone up.
The most enjoyable part of the job for me was the social side taking service users on outings and to various activities within the community.
Unfortunately, the unit closed down in 2016 and we all lost our jobs there.
