A typical day at work would be providing direct care for residential clients, teaching independent living skill, transporting clients to visits, appointments, and off campus activities.
I learned many things at Parsons about the diversity and skill set of clients depending on age, mentality, and situation. I was trained in therapeutic crisis intervention, first aid/cpr, and am med certified through Parsons.
Management is very understanding and flexible, easy to feel comfortable with, and always teaching.
The hardest part of this job really comes to gaining client's trust, which is also the best part of the job as well.
