    I’m into week 4 of a 120 hour placement for the course I’m doing in disability support. I’ve also started working as a support worker at a local community centre – for aged care, not disability. Everyone is nice; I’ve been invited to social events already (although I’m still my awkward self) and it’s been eye-opening so far, although quite confronting. Everyday I see an elderly client, it’s a reminder of how vulnerable we are, and when I hear of ‘difficult’ behaviour from clients at my placement – there’s an explanation for the behaviour (such as reliving trauma).
