Any job has a degree of paperwork but it has been nice to see the company putting a process in place that hasn’t seen us PAs flooded with paperwork and actually I am finding it making my visits easier, just don’t tell the directors.
You see BTC (Breaking The Cycle) has grown over the past year and I have been a part of that growth but this does require some reflection and discussions with local authorities to make sure we are doing a good job. I have loved working for them but actually I enjoy the structure the paperwork has given me as someone who is still learning about the job.
Between me and you it has also helped me with my taxes etc as a self employed member of the company as it creates logs that I can refer back to when logging my millage and hours. Fingers crossed we will see further positive developments as the company continues to grow.
Last week was a busy one for myself, visiting new clients to see if there could be a good enough connection to allow us to work together, visiting current clients, helping one client who is currently dealing with louder voices than normal and making sure that I am putting each and every client at the centre of everything that I am doing.
Working with Breaking The Cycle is so rewarding and they have such a similar vision to myself that I am loving working with them. Take for instance my meeting last week with 2 clients who require PA support, I was asked to meet them to gauge if there could be a rapport built to allow me to support them. I see so many care companies just filling slots with names where as I feel that Breaking The Cycle takes in to consideration what I want and need, what I bring to the table as well as what the client wants and needs. This really empowers me and with clients currently being out of hospital for the longest in their lives I have to believe that BTC’s approach has something to do with that success.
Last week wasn’t my easiest as I had to cram the hours in before half term but reflecting on it I can’t help feeling satisfied by a job well done and a job worth doing.
