I have been working with clients since 1972, sometimes in a hospital setting but usually one on one in the client’s home.
Curiosity-always remain curious for your own growth. Curiosity keeps you interested.
Lessons Learned- some of the best life lessons I have learned have been from clients and I thank them for it. Life is full of seasons so be ready for them.
Accept differences- you can learn about different cultures, religions, holiday celebrations and life styles.
Be caring- Birth and death will affect your clients and you.
Be honest- give honesty and accept honesty both in a respectful manner. Treat people as you expect to be treated.
Maintain a sense of humor
Don’t neglect your personal life.
