Residential Counselor, Lafayette, CO - November 13, 2015
I am a counselor for adults with disabilities and also a mentor when it comes to them becoming more independent and living their life to the fullest of their own potential. I do everything from helping them navigate hard situations and frustrations, to cooking meals and showering. We do many enjoyable outings over the weekend, including shopping, zoo, museum and movies just to name a few. The hardest part of the job is having the patience with the clients, even if they may have some pretty extreme behaviors to work with. I enjoy helping them grow in their lives, and progress into something maybe they were not sure they could become. They have changed my life and I learn something new every day from them, they have strength and perseverance more than most people.
