Disability Worker (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 14 July 2017
This has to be the worst place to work on earth. If I could give it zero stars I would. No management support, incompetent management, and lack of personal communication skills. Don't waste your time working from them because they just rip you off and don't recognise your abilities & skills.

Team Manager (Former Employee) – Central Coast NSW – 8 March 2017
I loved working at ADHC, had a great workplace culture never had a day where i felt i didn't want to be there. I always had the support i needed from management. I would still be there if i hadn't relocated to qld for family reasons.

Pick up supplies from store or kitchen and deliver to three hospitals around Sydney. How to work in a team environment Manager would not take on responsibilities in regards to work practices Work culture was to be tolerant to others in regards to different races Hardest part of the job working to a strict time frame. The satisfaction of doing something to help others.
Job satisfaction working with clients that needed help each day
Open to transition, supportive in learning and development
Disability Support Worker (Current Employee) – Wollongong NSW – 16 October 2016
Every is different, everyday is colorful working with someone with autism and intellectual disability.
I have learned that working with special person is amazing. I did not only learn from my own way/mistakes but they also teach how to learn new things every day such as having smile even they are in pain, even they have disability even they are far away from their family.
I would not stay with my current job if I have not received any good things in return. I love my job as it is very rewarding. My employer support us in learning and developing. as they offer regular training, My employer supported me since I studying at University in Wollongong taking up Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I get paid the same hours I work in a month or more when I do my hospital placement. I would not ask anything anymore but my developing career is my priority at the moment. I am going to graduate this coming November 2016. So, I need to leave my job at the right time. My employer) is aware that I will leave once I have found Nursing Job as it my dream.
I am proud to say that I work in a very healthy environment. If there are some conflicts between workers, I don't intervene or I don't get involve instead I give a positive rapport that I believe without bias. I always advise them to see the higher person such as Team Leader if they could not resolve in a first stage. Anyway, most of the time, they just take them as a normal life. Mostly worker understands where other workers came from. They understand one another and consider things happened only in particular event/only inmore... hard time. Everyone one treat each other like friends/sis/and brother.
The hardest part of the job is to handle patient who is having ADHD and when other clients plays up or shows unpredictable behavior. Anyway, it was not the worst one but when permanent workers got sick and someone will be in to work. Change os staff mostly causes of clients' behavior.
The most enjoyable part of the job is giving us a break and give us regular training to develop new things and updates knowledge and skills.less
Working as a disability support worker can be very challenging and satisfying.

A career as a Disability Support Worker (DSW) means you will be employed in a professional environment providing care and support to people with an intellectual and/or physical disability living in our community-based group homes.
The work is not always easy, but the rewards are attractive and it will bring out the best in you. The needs of the people we care for vary, so you will need to remain flexible, adaptable and positive in everything you do.
Disability support Worker (Current Employee) – Newcastle NSW – 20 January 2016
Being there support taking them shopping, banking, outings, personal care, cooking meals for them transporting them to appointments and to there day programs. I learned that all my clients have different needs and wants and have different behaviors. Management are pretty good overall. my co workers and I work together as a team. the hardest part is when they get upset and sometimes they don't want you help them but you just monitor them and give them the space they desire. The best part of my job is that I get to help and support my clients and to be able to put a smile on there faces and just looking after them in general..
Taking the clients out on outings
Yes we do 10 hour shifts sometimes 6 to 7 days straight.
Good opportunities to make a difference to less fortunate people.
Transport Driver / Relief Transport manager (Current Employee) – Newcastle, NSW – 18 August 2014
As transport I have an opportunity to make a difference in the life of people with severe disabilities on a daily basis. This makes the job worthwhile. Unfortunately management do not encourage and support staff enough in this sometimes tough work situation. I have a passionate interest in the WHS in the workplace and am studying to further that interest in the hope of progressing into that field of career. I enjoy helping with giving advice to work colleagues regarding their issues and helping resolve those same issues.
Support worker (Former Employee) – Gunnedah, NSW – 30 June 2014
some-days the job could be the same day after day learnt more in this job then any before management and co-workers some good some not that is all I will say losing a client through death sometimes walking through the door
It is very enjoyable and fulfilling to be able to make a difference in people with disability's life
Disability Support (Current Employee) – Blayney, NSW – 2 March 2014
Take clients to the community and let them have a choice of their own daily life. Have learnt to listen and read body language. When it comes to Management I just do what is expected of me. Towards my workmates, I go well with most of them and learned a lot from the most knowledgeable ones. The hardest part of it is when you are trying your best and still not enough for your workmate to recognise your best effort. The most enjoyable part of my job is I make a difference everyday in the life of people with disability.
