Well just thought I'd update you on my new job. I work as a domicillary care worker caring for mainly elderly people in their own homes...some are just very frail, some are very ill with cancer, dementia etc etc.......some even have Parkinson's!
Anyway all is going really well, I love my job it is so rewarding. I forget about my own PD when I see how old, frail and ill some of these dear people are. The ones with PD are in late stage so can't get on without help from people like myself. Ok so the hours are unsociable and I'm on shift Xmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Eve and New Years Day but we get paid accordingly. I feel privelidged to be caring for my clients, sometimes I'm the only face they may see all day. I had a long day yesterday (Wed) as my last call, the lady was complaining of chest pains so I called for a paramedic and she was taken to hospital. I called her family today and she's fine it was just acid reflux but they thanked me for my help and I soon forgot I'd been on shift since 7.30am, I got home at 11.30pm and was back on this morning at 8am..til 10pm.......LOVE MY JOB!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
Love and Hugs
