I worked for this company and found the management extremely unprofessional
I had many arguments around salary's left short on many occasions and having to wait another month for it to be sorted.

Extremely difficult job looking after a lady with multiple sclerosis, performing her daily tasks while dealing with her frustration. Wouldn't change a thing about it. Becoming apart of a team and helping to assist a lady that couldn't move a muscle in her body was both challenging and highly rewarding.
The hardest part was dealing with the lady when she got highly frustrated but I could understand the level of difficulty she was having.

The best part was getting to know her and becoming very close with her as well as developing a good team relationship with the other people around me.

The typical day at work for me was great. It was so challenging. My leader taught me to manage my job my time. I learnt to be comfortable with strangers as there were many people in the health department who came to do their work, nurses, doctors. Ots, physiotherapists, etc. The co-workers worked with me so well. The hardest part of the job was when she had to be admitted to hospital. She felt very very uncomfortable and I had to work from hospital. The job was so enjoyable most of the times. A lot of knowledge was acquired in the job it was always enjoyable whenever a job was done well and it was appreciated by her and the IWA.
Pros
Time management was well managed. Felt at home always.
Cons
The wait for treatment or ambulance if ever my leader suddenly fell sick

Showering, hoisting, dressing, and providing breakfast to patients in their own home. I learned Communication Skills and enjoy working with my co workers and working as a team. The hardest part of the job would be trying not to let the patients problems get to me. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the interaction with the people we work with.
Pros
meeting people
Cons
short hours
