Fast paced mental health facility with constant changes.
Personal Services Coordinator I (Current Employee) – Camarillo, CA – April 28, 2018
Telecare, while having an amazing stance on mental health and a positive outlook towards recovery, is truly a contradicting company. In the short amount of time that I have worked for telecare, I have seen many clients be treated with the care they deserve, while others get treated like trash. Staff talks about clients like they are a part of Telecare TMZ. Typically, a day at work consists of cooking, cleaning, running support/informative groups, distributing medications, taking clients to scheduled appointments, and filing/doing paperwork for clients all in the span of 8 hours. I have learned to never rely on my shift partner for anything, because if I do, something will not get done and in the end I will get blamed for it. Management is a joke, and is not as organised as the other facilities. The hardest part of the job is not being able to talk to the clients like a person, but rather as a staff. I cannot comfort them in the way that they need and it hurts me knowing that they are suffering. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to watch as someone with mental health improves their lives and is able to take care of themselves independently.
great field, great experience
short breaks, low pay for amount of work
