Pros: meeting new people, freedom in my work schedule
Cons: my manager is clueless
I love my clients. I love my job. Management is clueless as to what truly needs to be done in the home. I sent my supervisor numerous emails regarding the needs for clients and often the needs didn't get met. Not sure if she passed it on to CCAC or not.
Lots of advocating to my supervisor regarding clients' needs with little to no action. Again that could be CCAC's fault. I have had to give clients my personal phone number due to a lack of ability to communicate with the family.
I love my co-ordinator because she understands what I do.
The pay needs some work. I give nursing home-style care and advocate just like they do in the DSW field and in nursing homes.
I wish my supervisor would come out and witness how care must be completed. I have clients who have lifts. I am not supposed to operate them until I am trained by a physiotherapist. Meanwhile, their 70 yr old arthritic spouse is expected to operate it. I have operated it to spare her pain.
I love my job, just wish management would revamp policies to make them apply to our clients
