The group home has older individuals who are very much hands on. It’s tough work due to behaviours, conflict, SIB, and it’s very physical on the body. Plus, not enough staff so working alone supporting 6 clients becomes normal.

I have worked for this company almost five years, it's the most enjoyable time I have had on any job. Taking care of people with disabilities is very challenging but rather enjoyable, the individuals with disabilities have a vision and it's up to the staff to help them see the vision more clearly. Yes there are some disagreement among some staff, but I don't think it's done in front of the residents. For me working here in Oshawa, I would not have it any other way. Thank you Christian Horizons for employing me; thank you to my co-workers for us taking care of the guys so responsibly, and in letting them know that we will always be there to assist them in their, personal needs and vision. The most enjoyable part of my job is taking them out into the community such as Restaurant's, Church, Concerts and even on vocation. The look on their faces is priceless enough.
Pros
sitting and enjoying a meal with the clients.
Cons
Long hours are periodical.

This company is great for advancement.
Relationship with employees is only mediocre. States one thing, but does another.

Not unionized, so it is hard to fight for your rights.

benefits are only basic.
Pros
can work long term
Cons
management seems two-faced
