Great company and supportive staff at head office

I learned a lot working as a support worker and loved helping care for the individuals in their homes. The staff were friendly, caring and a great team. The hardest part was pleasing everyone and the behaviours of concern with some of the individuals. The most enjoyable part was being out in the community and going to disability dance and birthday parties and seeing the joy on peoples faces.

Pros

Free lunches and dinner, free training

Cons

Some staff were bullying and dominating which made it unbearable.

Individuals come first

Working with the individuals in their homes gives you a rewarding and fulfilling lifestyle, giving without taking. Loving them unconditionally and not expecting from anyone is the key to happiness. You are here because you want to work and help those who are in need. Not for the power or the position or higher pay... if so then this job is not for you. There will be some staff members who will create problems for you because they are searching for power, or credit... But you can bring it to higher management and they will deal with it. People are only human and you will meet them wherever you go... they will try to bring you down but you are not here for the staff who works with you... they are your equal, they are not above you. We need more friendly faces in this industry, those who are willing to give their time without calculating and controlling. The main role is to prepare the individuals for the day as per your shift. Taking them to places or prepare them to be taken to places. Medications are a vital part of their daily lives, making sure they are given a balanced diet, a balanced lifestyle and making sure they are comfortable. Also contribute towards their safety and their rights. Remember, we are their voice.

Pros

Ongoing training, home cooked food, nice people to work with

Cons

There are not nice people that you will come across, unfortunately it is inevitable any where
