Meaningful and insightful experience.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Chambersburg, PA – May 1, 2015
-A typical work day consisted of helping individuals diagnosed with mental disabilities make meaningful life decisions, be involved with the community and improve their quality of life. I supervised a community group home where three of these individuals live.
-I learned a myriad of organizational and practical life skills, and I learned a lot about myself; who I am, what I want, what makes me feel fulfilled. I also learned about the healthcare industry in general, I learned about what it's like to live with someone with a disability, and I learned a lot about patience and compassion.
-Management is very helpful, understanding, flexible and available.
-Co-workers are mostly hardworking, intelligent, prompt and caring.
-What I enjoyed most about the job was building tight knit relationships with the people I assisted, and seeing the immediate positive impacts of my work. Especially when I put in the extra mile, it was always appreciated.
