Reflecting on a busy week

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.

Simple Steps Are Often The Hardest

Another great day today with my client and another good day in a messy world of their mental health.

My client was great shopping today, they understood the benefit of not spending at a secondhand shop and actually budgeted their funds really well to get an array of food. They chose to think before throwing it in to the trolly, which for many seems such a small thing to do but for my client it is another big step.

Smiles Better

Another fulfilling day today as a PA.

I spent the day working with my Client sort their bills and putting up shelving to allow them to create a cleaner and more organised living room. On arrival they had cleaned as promised and they seemed so enthused to continue to make their property feel more like home. It is so great to seem them focusing on positive things and controlling their demons.

Difficult but rewarding day

Arriving to see my client in such a dark place was not the best feeling but with some distractions and some fresh air we soon saw a spark of light and a smile. It was a difficult day where I had to be on my A game but when you can impact someones life in a positive way it really gives you purpose as a PA. Fingers crossed my time with the client will keep them up until our next visit.
