I was so happy when I saw the individual I support get better after a positive COVID situation. I saw someone go from being healthy, then to being very sick. To see them get healthy again was very rewarding. But, continuing to work with the risk was not an easy decision to make. I had grown a beard to mourn my brother who passed and I had to shave to wear the N95. I decided to shave because this is the work that my brother would want me to do.
I have always been someone that wants to help others, working with an individual is not just a job. You have to ask yourself what you would want if you were in their situation. They need services when there is a pandemic as much as when there is not a pandemic.
