Axcellent staff and team work
Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Glastonbury, Somerset – 9 March 2017
A typical day at work would be,getting the residents washed and dressed ready for their breakfast,and using the moving and handling skills i had attained, which would entail, hoisting them into a wheelchair and taking them to the lounge for their meals.
I have learned patience, understanding ,and empathy, but most of all to give them dignity and respect.
The hardest part of the job for me was finding out that one of the clients you were looking after had passed away, the old addage say's that you shouldnt get attached but how can you not,they have such an impact on your life it's impossible not too.
The most enjoyable part for me was seeing the smile's on there faces when they recognised you,especially if they hadn't seen you for a day or two.
