Upon commencement as a casual disability support worker I was placed into work immediately, I never had a buddy to show me the ropes. I quickly learned that you have to be quick on your feet. I love the clients who I work with and that would be the most enjoyable part of my job. To see my clients faces light up when I arrive for me shift is heart warming to say the least. I love that my clients have trust and faith in me. The hardest part of my job is working with young disabled children. Its heart breaking, but I always put on my happy face and do what is needed to do.
THE BEST job I have ever had has been with The Disability Trust. Management have a great understanding of clients needs and offer proper training to support workers when needed. overall they not only take care of the clients but they also take awesome care of their workers too.
Awesome client base, great bosses and spectacular team
they always need workers
The IT team was very nice and welcoming to me , they also answered all the questions i had whilst working there. When I couldn't figure out what or how to do something they would give me a hand instead of just leaving me to suffer.
Great place to work and learn
Only worked there for 3 months
This job was one of the best jobs I've ever had in my adult working life. The management were helpful, the staff were brilliant and the clients we looked after day after day really made it easy to get out of bed whenever I needed to go to work.
Work for casual staff is for group care and individual support. These are fun but I have seen new staff members not recieve any shadow hours with clients thats ok if you are expereinced, but not qualified and inexperienced staff have shifts with new clients with only a SAP sheet to show them what to do. It's not fair on the client or worker, DT is still wanting casual staff, which I don't understand as new casual staff are finding only a few shifts are available, Shifts that are handed out can be for only a hour or maybe a little more. The focus is on the clients not so good for staff support
Co-workers staff no a lot
Management and no shifts
Day shift started at 6 am. You do a change over with the afternoon/night shift person. Catch up on what happened the night before. Read the weeks reports if you haven't worked all week. Start organizing breakfast. Residents wake up, help the residents that need help to get their breakfast. Clean up after breakfast. Organize the residents that need showers and who just need to wash their faces and get dressed. Start to hurry those who need to go to jobs or day placements. Drive them to the places that they have to be. Come back to house to catch up on paperwork and any house work Organize lunch for those that are at home. Go and pick up the workers and day placement residents and return them home. Leave at 4 pm, when the afternoon/night shift staff come into work.
Social outings to the club and residents win meat trays.
Over qualified managers taking a disliking certain staff.
Typical day at work is looking after the clients and give them all the attention they needs , we do different activities during the day , we go for day trips to different events happening in the community . It gets busy sometimes but the team work is good , management is available when needs and very supportive . Hardest part of work is when you don't understand what the client needs when they are agitated or when they can not speak proper english. Enjoyable part of work is meeting new clients , learning a lot about them and knowing different backgrounds of people .
8 am to 5 pm not that bad
client personal care daily activity's clients personality and needs grow as they learn to trust and depend on u and help them become/retain or regain there independence. flexibility and long term goals matching high care staff with high care clients works working with low care staff clients independence and enjoyment and respect for looking after them for the long term
cooking for clients
good pay and smiles
Our work place is always changing one day it can be quite and the next it is crazy client behaviors medical needs ECT. But it also can be very rewarding watching the changes in the clients. Management overall is ok but we recently had a Middle management change and she doesn't involve the managers under her enough and use the knowledge they hold in regards to staff that work for the company. In all the crew I work with are great we communicate well together support each other when there has been issues on the floor,we have a great collective knowledge in disabilities. The hardest part of the job would be when we have a client that no matter what we try they are unable to secure a position in the center . The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the clients achieve there goals ,behavior issues are less,and everyone is interacting well together and having a good laugh with the clients.
Lack of positive feed back
