If you point out their shortcomings, such as understaffing or lack of untrained casual staff they’ll hunt you until you’re done. So just be the lackey they want.
Pros
The residents and front line staff are great to work with.

Work is available but based on who the manger and senior employees like. There is exclusion if you do not break into the core group of long term employees.

Great place to work if you enjoy assisting and empowering people with disabilities, all work collegues know their job and we work well together. On site the main managment is supportive but unfortionatly my manager was not so much and was discouraging to work there due to work politics. I got happy from knowing that i have done the best i could possible for the people with disabilities and clients. I had a client write me a letter telling me i changed her life for the positive.
Pros
work with beautiful clients
Cons
micro manager and work politics had no flexibility

A typical day at work going to client's place and providing service as directed by mangement that included; 1. Assisting client at home with personal care, medication, cooking light meals, 2. Taking clients to doctors, shopping or intertment venues e.g. cinema, bowling, I learned that everybody need to enjoy life and to be respected. Communication with my co-workers was very important in order to provide consistant best care for our clients. The hardest part of the job; Sometime it was very emotional especially when dealling with clients with severe dissabilities and pains. The most enjoyable part of the job seeing a smile on client's face.
Pros
flexiable work hours
Cons
dealing with difficult client or their carers.

Work sheets with instruction on what was required to repair, modify or manufacture Learnt the intricate equipment for the dis-able clients and the purpose Management had been there for a long time and had people they trusted. I didn't appreciate management trying to get me to work under an unqualified contract cleaner. Co-worker eager for quality work and the safety of the clients The hardest part of the job was been interrupted by the cleaner. The most enjoyable part was working with the Physio-Therapist and the clients

A typical day is assisting the clients with daily activities such as Meal assistance and toileting. Taking them out into the community and teaching them to make a meaningful contribution. The management is very supportive and willing to listen to their staff and suggestions. My co-workers are also friendly and supportive. The hardest part of the job is understanding what some of the clients are trying to say. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the smile on the clients faces when I have helped them either make a decision or a contribution to the community.
