A typical day at work for me would be to provide care and ensure that the clients are safe. Help and encourage the clients to prepare for their day and activities and routines they might be doing. Anything can be thrown into the day and you never know what to expect so you must be flexible and easy going. I have learned so much about not only the clients i work with but also myself. Management does a good job in trying to ensure the well being of the clients and staff and provide activities to show appreciation. The hardest part of my job would be to see things happen, mentally or physically to the clients and know that there is only so much we can do to help them. The most enjoyable part of my job on the other hand would be seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter of the clients and the excitment they get when they have accomplished something and knowing that you have helped them to get to that point. They are very appreciative of their staff and we are all one big family. We go through the good, the bad and the ugly together but at the end of the day i love knowing that i have helped someone or multiple people accomplish something.
