I worked at a day program. I was on the recreation department for 6 years. Then I started at A different day pogram fro 2002-2004. It was a good exper
Pros: good benefits, good incentives(example raffle to leave early)
Cons: being hit by someone or spit at
A typical day was greeting participants as they came off their vans. Many were then served coffee. They went to their diifferent classes. I assisted with activies. Some were exercise, crafts, daily skills (grooming). I also drove for outings such as bowling, Meals on Wheels, and recycling. The coworkers worked as a team. The hardest part was when someone would become upset and hit someone, yell or spit. The most enjoable was getting to know the people who attended program.
