Productive and Working to Find Solutions
Resident Counselor (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – April 22, 2017
A typical day at work involves caring for residences that has been diagnosed with psychiatric disabilities. This includes educating them on life skills to integrate them back into society. Loretto’s facility is designed to remove the stigma residences are confronted daily by society with having psychiatric challenges. I have learned that people with mental disabilities still have the cognitive desires to integrate back into society regardless of how many challenges they face. Whether the goal is fully met is beside the point, but we must continue to assist them until counseling is no longer necessary. Management has done an excellent job training employees on how to deal with different issues, teaching specific guidelines, regulations and how to implement them effectively. The hardest part of the job is those who pass away before they can successfully reach their goal originally attempted. The most part I love about the job is that I can encourage and teach people with disabilities current life tools they can use for them to live fulfilling and happy lives.
