A typical day at work is a 7.00 am start where i go to peoples homes and provide personal care, administer medication, provide fluids and nutrition and promote and maintain well being.
In this job, you are constantly learning, and evolving as a person, the main thing this job has taught me, is life is short and to make the most of what we have here and now. I have started to use things that i have always saved for special occasions like glasses and dinner services as i bought them to enjoy them, instead of enjoying them once a year, i enjoy them every day.
i have excellent relations with my co workers as i work on a double round where my co worker is important and we have to have a high level of working relations to get the job done effectively.
The hardest part of my job is not being able to help someone who has lost mental capacity and there requests have to be declined as it would put them in danger and become a health and safety risk for all involved as in the client, my co worker and myself.
The most rewarding part of this job is knowing that in some way i have brought them dignity, happiness, and increased there quality of life in the time that i have spent with them, and listened to some amazing story's which they may not ever have been able to tell there family as they no longer have any kin.
no travel time between clients
