Managers and uppers management don’t care about their employee and break the rights of employees more then often. They cut clients hours short they don’t give the clients what they have qualified for from the government They ignore staffs requests for the clients. They ignore clients complaints and never adhere to clients rights or their dignity. To many managers that have no experience working with elderly in healthcare They should pay the healthcare workers more money and get rid of 75% of upper management and office workers To driven on making money for themselves then for the taking care of their clients wants and needs

I took a 7 week stress leave due to personal medical issues as well as a medical issue with my daughter-The work atmosphere at the CCD office where I was employed had gone through so many changes, I could barely keep a grip on the over abundance of workload I was continuing to have put on me. I felt like I was struggling to stay above water. I was never one to complain or leave coworkers (in my case-one) without support, but I was at the end of my rope. I was sick of the unfairness and lack of management care. This rose through all ranks. When I returned to my position, all of my work and personal possessions had been removed from my office and I was left feeling totally unworthy as an employee. Needless to say I resigned almost immediately. During my exit interview the new HR employee told me my leave was “quite a long time off”, In my opinion, not only was that unprofessional of her in her position, but also a blatant disregard of a major element of what CCD is to stand for-Supporting others.

We had almost no training on the positions. Changes were being made and they tried to make it look like they were being "transparent" but had no intentions of it. I was told that I was "finally" dealing with things that had been asked to be dealt with for 3+ years. I could not handle my hands being tied and the office politics any longer so I needed to leave the agency. They hire based on pieces of paper, not actual knowledge. Management would rather never admit to being wrong.
Pros
fair pay, friendly peers/staff
Cons
minimal training, feel lost on the job, inconsistancy, dishonesty from above

Upper management (Directors & their direct Admin) were always looking at a way to mess you up & blame you for mistakes to cover their own butts. Put a lot of workload on the mental health COPE manager.
Pros
Free coffee & lunches celebrate holidays & birthday
Cons
Extremely "politically correct".

Typical day would be to pick up a client and drive them to their appointment.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the social interaction with the client(s) on a daily basis with lots of communication and laughs.

I do not have a typical day of work, every day is different. When you would with vulnerable people inn the community you never really know what will come up that day. Great workplace, lots of support from management which helps especially when dealing with difficult situations.
My job is very rewarding and can be difficult at times. I always try my best to support my clients in any way that I can.
Pros
Support
Cons
Not enough hours
