A typical start to the day is showering an medication prompt, which can mean up to about 5 or 6 a day. I do not have alot of contact with other co- workers because i travel on my own, from house to house. the hardest part of the job is the travelling and fighting the traffic congestion. the most enjoyable part of the job is meeting different people, but because they are elderly they have lots to talk about their childhoods as so on.
meeting people and using my skills have learnt along the way.
Traffic congestion, sometimes unorganised with schedules all over the place.
