Wonderful Work Experience
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Anna, IL – August 5, 2017
When it comes to working for Independent Living Services, a typical day is never typical. Paperwork is always waiting, but what fills the space in between can never be predicted. ILS has been the best learning experience that I could have ever asked for, teaching me a level of patience, compassion and understanding that I don't feel that I would have achieved without the very valuable lessons taught to me by my clients. Management members at ILS are very kind. All praise is given promptly and all criticism is constructive.
The most enjoyable part of being an employee for ILS is getting the opportunity to watch my clients progress in different ways, such as learning names of their medications or being able to shower themselves without assistance. In turn, the most difficult part of the job comes when your client is trying to communicate a need or want of their's to you and you do not understand. When this happens, ILS staff will come together as a team to understand the client and meet their needs and wants.
Great work enviornment
