Wonderful Individuals Terrible Management
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Mount Vernon, IA – July 28, 2017
A typical work day would be picking the individuals up from work, taking them home, giving them a snack, doing any basic hygiene skills with them, do laundry, cook dinner, assist to bed, documentation until night shift comes. I learned a lot about different care levels individuals may require and how to accomplish these with minimal assistance. I learned the importance of communication and teamwork. The management was very lax. My supervisor was great but her supervisor was horrible and not organized which led to me quitting the job in the end. In the individuals home, its a wonderful environment. The hardest part is probably when an individual is having a bad day. The most enjoyable part was spending time with the individuals and learning from them.
Wonderful individuals, decent hours, easy documentation
horrible management, delayed paperwork completion
