I was a service coordinator for a 41 bed HUD project in Ohio. Over half of the elderly residents had chronic conditions (IDDM, CHF, COPD, CA, CVA, or some form of dementia). My job was to assist the residents get the service and supports they needed to allow them to age in place.
I enjoyed working for the company and for the residents. Management was excellent and believed in the mission statement and core values. I felt that, if I had questions, either my direct supervisor and or the QA department could get, and demonstrate, the information I needed to complete the task in question. Constructive feedback was given every quarter and semiannually using impartial standards. Management was always open , and encouraged, constructive feedback.
The difficult part of the job was that due to the advanced age and pathology of the residents it was unrealistic to expect resident's health status to improve. Slowing the rapid progression of disease was the best that could be hoped for. Fatigue in the residents and one's peers was an intermittent factor that bogged down the job occasionally.
