Learned about public aide and social security disability. Very interesting job.
Pros: i liked this job even though i worked long hours. pay was decent and health insurance was good.
Cons: job so demanding i worked several hours. tried to help too many others.
At the beginning of each and every day I did a
census report for department head morning meeting.
Then during the day various reports, filing any
new applications for financial help for residents,
payroll every other week, mail, banking, etc.
I learned a lot about public aide and social
security disability. Most of the management at
the local level – more... were ok. Like any place, some
at corporate had no idea what the real work was.
I would like to think I got along with all of my
co-workers. The hardes part was getting payor
sources for some of the residents. After they
opened up the mental rehal section the person
doing the admitting didn't realize that just
because a person was a recovering alcoholic
or drug addict, he could get disability. The
best part of the job was the residents. Most
of them were very enjoyable. Felt so sorry for
those with no families. – less
