Enjoyed daily interaction with consumers
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Dover-Foxcroft, ME – April 26, 2017
Typical mornings (as night shift) included bathing consumers, preparing breakfast, and assisting day staff with loading consumers and their items into the vehicle for day program. I learned a new level of respect for the uniqueness of individuals with disabilities, and a new sense of the quality of life that every individual has a right to. The hardest part of the job for me was learning the different ways that the clients in the group home communicated with. However, that was also the most enjoyable aspect of my job. It was incredibly rewarding to learn how to help improve their quality of life, and to be out in the community assisting them in interactions with the rest of the community.
