Shared goal to create the best environment for the clientele
DEVELOPMENTAL SERVICE WORKER (Current Employee) –  Greater Sudbury, ON12 October 2017
Community Living is a great company to work for. The staff make a fun and enjoyable atmosphere for the clientele that they serve. The hardest part about the job is the shift work and forced doubles meaning time away from family and required rest needed to provide the best care possible for the clients. The most enjoyable part of the job by far is the clients and their interaction with staff as well as their peers.

Handed in any incidents/accident reports if any

This employer treats their employees horrible, they often dismiss workers with out proper cause.

They do not support their staff, they dont have a clue on how an agency should run

Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Greater Sudbury, ON2 November 2012
loved working with the clients..Very physical and sometimes mentally exhausting..Met some really great co-workers and also some not so great people..the hardest part is that some clients are non verbal and came become violent..Learning to think that sometimes when you get abused it's not personal and to move on..you get really attached to some clients as every day is not a bad day for them so trying to make their life a little bit better is very rewarding..
Pros
amazing and fulfilling to help someone in need
Cons
very difficult emotionally and physically but still rewarding
