I have enjoyed some aspects of live-in work since December 2020 very much.
I was lucky to spend time with clients who tried to be active with me in spite of their health and mental condition, to go out again for short walks or even try some gentle stretching dancing with me. I admit that I am quite shy and won't always dance in front of others.
Most clients seem to have a love and hate relationship with me and I am grateful for the happy times. I try and avoid excessive ruminating and and instead I try a create safe space for positive interactions if possible, I try and connect with people through feelings where the logic is no longer present.
I enjoyed company of clients who watched wildlife documentaries, sitcoms or movies on Netflix or who liked music.
I find interesting overcoming physical and mental barriers, learning to be patient which can be hard at times and I am happy I have learnt a few tricks.
I have recently tried many recipes for stews, variations on leek soup etc.
