In working at Rescare, even though the work loads were demanding, I found this job rewarding and opportunities for advancements. I learned numerous skills especially in the area of supervision and leadership- the demands, the follow up, the presence of leadership needed, training used as a positive tool, human resource topics (employment law/protected classes, etc), completing the IFUR tools used by the State of Indiana, and the conduct and attitude of a supervisor. I enjoyed my co-workers, always found times to ease the stress with laughter, and were helpful one to another. The hardest part of the job was not being able to have a complete family life or the time to wind down from the demands of the job. Highly intensive, but it was my job. I really enjoyed working with the individuals I served. They were very special and anything I could do for them to make their lives better and functional was rewarding. Just seeing the smile and greetings they had for me when I walked in the door. They made me appreciate my life even more. – less
