Community Support Services
Community Support Services (Current Employee) – Dover, NH – February 29, 2016
Picking up clients starting as early as 8am bringing them to the grocery store, banking, cooking class, exercise, Doctor visits, Therapy visits, teaching budgeting, social skills, healthy living skills. I learned that no matter the disability each client had the ability to learn a new skill or become more confident in the skills they possessed.
My co-workers and management team worked like a well oiled machine. It was sad that the department I worked in for two years was removed due to budget cuts.
The hardest part of the job was not taking the job home with me. No allowing the clients to call me ten to twenty times a night unless is was an emergency.
The most enjoyable part of the job is most definitely the clients. They love you unconditionally, smile with you, cry and lean on you, and trust you without thought.
Getting the ability to give to another human things I had taken advantage of.
Poor pay, getting attached to a client and losing them.
