Cons: travelling from st.john's to Glovertown to leave my home for long periods of time.
A typical day started at light cleaning duties, cooking, personal care etc.. I also assisted him in any or everywhere this person needed or wanted to go.
I learned how difficult life can be for someone – more... who has no ability to do things for himself. It gave me more consideration and compassion and a different outlook on life.
I worked really well with this person and gained a friend as well. He mentioned several times how much he enjoyed my assistance and it made me feel appreciated.
The hardest part was leaving my home to work in another location. I commuted from st.john's to Glovertown.I enjoyed mainly the places we went and it felt rewarding to make someone smile and enjoy life. . – less
