I drove my own vehicle to my clients homes where I peformed domestic assistance. My work involved general maintenance and hygiene of the client's home. Duties included changing bed linen, dusting, washing and hanging out washing, cleaning floors, bathroom and toilet areas. Shopping for clients as required. Assisted one client with shower. I developed excellent time management skills as I completed duties in the time allowed. I learnt many necessary skills while training for the National Certificate of Health, Disability and Aged Support (Foundation Skills) Level 2. This enabled me to become more assertive when dealing with difficult behaviour which led to positive outcomes for my clients. I worked independently and developed excellent problem solving skills. The best part of the job was making a difference for my clients. I had regular contact with my clients and got to know them well. I enjoyed talking and listening to them.
Pros
Work independently with miminum supervision.

This job mainly for home care help, however we can't access the care plan of different clients, so there is a gap what support worker provided and what the client expect. So this service gap is not filled by management. Even they roster suddenly to new client with out any proper orientation or sharing care plan, health and safety issues at client home. So this leads to lot of complaints from clients due to improper management of Service manager . And they can't take any action even if we point out these service gap and ultimately blame support workers
Pros
Work life balance, free training, right time pay fortnightly
Cons
No lunch break pay even if they offer in contract, No guaranteed hours, So you cannot pay rent depends this job, it's very difficult to get full time job, hours allocate is very less, no steady source of income

You learn so much with Access and the clients that you care for. I recommend going for high needs clients as you learn so much. If you ever want to do nursing or become a doctor start here as it covers a wide range of clients from all walks of life and you can study levels 2-4 while working with Access then study for one to two years and become a registered nurse. A career path worth taking
