Learning & Positive Aspects of Week 1
The positives aspects of the week was I learned a lot from the care center and I got to take part in a lot of activities and used hoists, and learned how things were done properly.
The challenge I encountered was the language they spoke very fast in spanish and it was sometimes hard to understand what they were saying.
I really enjoyed working and the staff and people there were very nice and helpful. I took part in all the activities in the centre and they said I was doing really good at the tasks they gave me.I got to use hoist and helped with showering and toileting and I achieved my goals and was very happy there.
