I help people with special needs with their daily functions. I typically cook and clean for them as well as ensure they take care of their hygiene, as well as interacting with them regularly.
Management does not take steps to foster a positive and supportive work environment. There are huge communication gaps between management and the staff, as well as amongst staff members. Management allows perpetuation of gossip and inter staff conflict, without really getting to the core of the problems.
One of the hardest parts of my job is not receiving ample assistance from other staff members, and not feeling a sense of security from Management.
There are times that I have very positive interactions with the consumers that I take care of; those make my time worth it.
