    my shift was at night so from 8 pm-8am i made sure the two women clients were fed, bathed (one had CP) and the other was M.R and dressed for bed,also i gave out meds at night and in the am.I also sat with them talking about their goals in life and their famlies and friends.We also went on outtings and they also came to my home for visiting,they were a joy to work with.In the morning i gave them their meds and made and served them their breakfast then waited for their transportation (bus) to come to pick them up for their day treatments,after they left i wrote down in our notes what my shift entailed,any problems with the ladies any concerns from the ladies and generally what had happened while i was working.This was a daily procedure for obtaining their records.Both of my clients are patients of the state of Florida.
