A day in the life of an Adult Protective Service employee
Adult Protective Services/ HSSIII aka Investigator (Current Employee) – Chandler, AZ – May 15, 2018
Work schedule is Monday thru Thursday from 6:00 am to 4:30 pm. I have learned peer pressure never leaves despite a persons age. There has been 3 directors in the past few years, new management is known to restructure responsibilities to fit their personal experience. All of this restructure, I want to feel it is done for the best of the vulnerable adult however, due to what I have witnessed I have to wonder. The workplace culture is fantastic, team efforts, no bias, very respectful of each other personal choices. The hardest part of this position is telling a person they can no longer care for themselves, be independent with finances or have to move to a higher level of care due to their needs. The most rewarding part of the current position I hold is getting cards and thoughtful notes from the clients and their families. Seeing and experiencing their smiles when everything is over and the client is safe and needs are being addressed.
