Great company
Care Provider (Former Employee), Arcadia, CaNovember 7, 2013
A company that provided individuals to gain independence and the ability to learn social skills. The co-workers were cooperative and understanding. The most rewarding part of the job was to be able to see my clients become a part of the Disability Rights State of California.

Everyday job
STNA/HHA (Former Employee), Columbus, OHOctober 30, 2013
Pros: quality time with parents
Cons: every day that ended in "y" no days off.
I had worked for this company daily. They gave no paid vacations nor and paid sick time. I was my own boss, learning many skilled services that I would be required to do on a daily basis. I learned how to do a bowel stem, change indwelling catheters to stage 4 wound care. The hardest part of my job was to watch on a daily basis the deterioration of – more... my parents quality of life. I have had a lot of enjoyable time with my parents so of which I would have never had had I not been their total care giver. Typically my day would start with coffee and medication. Then help get both dressed for the day, transfer Dad to wheelchair and check to see if any doctors appointments were for the day or what was scheduled. Do any type of housework be it cleaning or laundry, check to see if anything was needed from the store. If there were things that were needed to make sure they were purchased and delivered that evening when I returned. Make sure they have a good breakfast and then return in the evening to make sure they have taken their night medication and clean up the kitchen from the day and put Dad back to bed. – less

Enjoyed the work
Children's Service Coordinator (Former Employee), Luray, VAOctober 31, 2012
Pros: working close with the children and mothers, hopefully helping them in some way.
Cons: pay being based on grants.
Each day was different, never the same. Sometimes you would walk into a crisis maybe a mother just got beat up by her boy friend or husband and decided today that was enough. She would show up on the door step looking for a place to stay, or maybe she called before, but decided he won't hit me again believing what he told her over and over. Finally – more... she gathers her children and looks for a safe place to raise them, without fear of her children or her getting hurt again. The hardest part of the job was knowing the fear they lived and seeing the hurt in the eyes of the young children and the mother. This kind of hurt leaves such a scar on their lives. I learned to listen, most the time that's the most important part, just for them to be able to open up and talk or cry what ever they feel like they need to do to get the pain out. Each person deals with pain in different ways.
But then there were the rewards, when maybe mom got the job she needed so badly, or the child passed the Spelling test after we practiced so hard. Or maybe they found an apartment they could get a fresh start in. The smiles, the laughs the hugs, or maybe it was just something as simple as a new backpack filled with all the things that was needed to start a new school that they could take their pick from among the school supplies that had been provided just for them. – less

being able to meet the needs of individuals by teaching and learning with them.
Support Worker (Former Employee), Dundas, ONJuly 11, 2014
Pros: self gratification
Cons: to much bullying
Fast paced atmosphere providing a specialized service to individuals with developmental disabilities.

A team of qualified staff developing and implementing self growth and independence to enhance quality of life.

The most enjoyable part of this position was daily involvement with clients supported assisting with their individual learning and meeting – more... of milestones. Everyday is rewarding.

Hardest part of this job was not being able to provided the desired activity due to circumstances beyond employees control.

Management are selfish individuals and will target employees in order to protect themselves. What ever the manager says against the front line workers will stand regardless of witnesses and truth. Everyone out for themselves. A lot of bullying and workplace violence. – less

Provided assistance to clients with daily activities such as hygeine to outings.
Relief support worker (Former Employee), Hamilton/surrounding area, ONSeptember 10, 2013
Pros: being able to take clients out on outings.
Cons: was a bit of a drive.
A typical day would consist of making meals for the clients within the home, providing hygiene, administer medication, doing laundry and general cleaning. Plus any outings for appointments/programs that they may have.
Learned to always be on the move and to watch my back, especially when alone with several clients.
Worked with a great group of people – more... who were very friendly and who loved their job.
Hardest part was the travelling around from one group home to another and not getting a chance to really know the clients.
The most enjoyable part was seeing them happy and knowing that you have provided the best care to each of them that day. – less

Challenging position with rewards of helping others.
Support Worker (Former Employee), Dundas, ONJuly 24, 2012
Pros: home like setting.
Cons: dangerous place to work with outsourced staff that are not competant.
The management isnt there for the employee's, and poor planning is done to ensure that the employee is in a sfe environment.
I dearly hope that a nessecary change is done to ensure the saftey of the residents and the care workers!
