Pros: one on one time with clients
Cons: no paid time off
A day at work -Very Busy -We teach daily living skills and how to deal with people in the community. We assist in daily living skills and provide assistance where it is needed and provide transportation to and from community activities. I have learned that we need to have patience when dealing with others because some can not understand or do not have the comprehension skills to deal with certain situations and they need positive interaction and structure to learn these skills- My co-workers believe in helping others, giving a part of themselves to make others lives better as do I. The most difficult thing I have encountered is: people views on others when they have "less"-were so quick to judge others and make fun of people when those problems cant be helped and the person with the disability has no understand or cant comprehend why people are being mean to them,, that's the hardest part.. When you have a soft heart as I do, you see yourself differently you notice your compassion for people and sympathy and have an understanding of what others lives are like and your not so quick to judge or fill yourself with hatred.....What I love the most about the job is giving myself and all I know to someone else and helping them learn to become a better person and how to overcome the hurdles we all have on a daily basis.. I love watching people grow physically, mentally ,emotionally, spiritually....And what I love the very most is Knowing I can Make a difference in someone else's life. PERIOD.
