Able to enjoy all aspects of the individuals lives and interested
Community Disability Service Practitioner (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 October 2016
A typical day at work would be to greet the individuals as they came in in the morning and put away there personal belongings in a cubby.
We were assigned groups if we were to stay on the floor and we would do crafts, go to computer room, music therapy, or art room.
We would assist those who needed with their lunch and if they were going out for the afternoon, get them ready for the DATS.
Certain days were assigned PC, and helped the individuals who needed with bathroom duties.
Some days we were assigned sites, e.g., swimming, dances, volunteer work.
Co-workers worked as a team to ensure excellent quality of life for our individuals, not one person worked more or less than the other, I enjoyed working with all the co-workers I worked with.
Hardert part of the job was when we found out that an individual was leaving the program or had passed away.
Most enjoyable part of the day was listening to stories and laughing with individuals and co-workers
