I started working in this field because back home I was a social worker. Helping other people with a different background helps us grow. We learn from the people we support. We learn about how we can adapt to other people's behavior and how we can support others. Everyday I come to work it is a learning experience.
We continue to work in this field because we made a commitment. Sometimes that commitment is easier and sometimes it is harder, but it is a commitment. I am willing to do it because we know the individuals and we have built a bond. We spend so much time with them we are family to them. With this difficult situation they need support more now than ever.
