Administrative/Direct Care, Texas City, TX - August 23, 2017
Provide ILS services to IDD/MHMR and consumers in need of respite. Schedule services and contact families to inform them of services being given. Transport consumers to and from locations of their choice. I make calls weekly to nursing facilities to make sure consumers are up to going out into the community. I also work very closely with Service Coordinators and inform them of any information on the consumers. I also learned that every individual is different and how to communicate with consumers better. The hardest part of the day is having to tell the consumer their time is up and it is time to return to their residence. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with Consumers and knowing you are helping them with living skills.
