Enjoyable to work with clients who, many times, were pretty much housebound but were very enjoyable people to talk to, with and enjoy their company.
Pros: Meeting wonderful and interesting people.
Cons: Time sensitive.
A typical day would be to come into the client's home and ask what they want or need to have done and I would do whatever cleaning they needed doing that week. I always worked alone, this was the nature of our work and only met someone at We Care office in Cranbrook when I picked up my cheque. I would be asked if there were issues with any of the clients and I would discuss any concerns I or the client may have.
The most enjoyable part of the job was doing something for the client that he/she was not able to physically do him/her self.
The hardest part of the job was that time was not always on my side. If the client needed to talk or discuss a bad week or situation, then I spent time listening to him/her. Sometimes time did not allow me to do both, clean and listen. I would always do what I felt the client needed most.
I had wonderful clients to work with, some amazing stories were told, very interesting people, some sad situations, but very enjoyable.
