Residential Support Worker in Calgary, AB

Difficult days, definitely need some caring people to work here
Working at CLAS provided for an interesting environment. The benefit was that I worked 48 hours in a row and I had 5 days off. Although they wanted me to work as many hours as I could but I did not want to. It was great being able to sleep at night, but some houses you could possibly not get a great sleep. It is sad to see how minimal you are paid, especially for the clientele that you had. I get sad that people with disabilities are somehow on the bottom of the totem pole for those who work in Social Work. It should not be treated that way. This work is hard but it can be quite fun. I spent many days on walks, going to Banff, hanging out with the clients and seeing them have fun. I know that 'safe rooms' can be a little scary, but I am thankful for a place where the clients can feel safe when they are struggling with their emotions.

I enjoyed working here, the management and the owner really care about people with disabilities.
I genuinely believe that the leadership team and the owner very much care about the individuals with disabilities and they are their number one priority always. I was part of the HR team and worked closely with them. The environment was very pleasant, my supervisor was very supportive and helpful and helped me grow in my role. I found the benefits being expensive, but this is probably because I am used to having them covered 100% be employer.Many social workers loved working for CLAS as they paid more than other non profit organizations, there were lots of opportunities for overtime which was amazing for many. All that being said it very much depends on who your supervisor is and this can make a massive difference in regards to enjoyment of your work. I think there should be more vacation days provided. I think it is great place to work!

Management does not care about staff, their only concerned with funding
The overseers did not care about day program staff's mental health or well-being throughout the pandemic, only concerned with funding. Thus they would force staff to go into the community with individuals in their personal vehicles without providing proper PPE for the staff and their vehicles. They would threaten the staff's job security, to compel us not to complain, and if we did, we would get fired (which occurred) before the pandemic things were a little different, not perfect but not excellent. Once the pandemic hit, the actual colors of the overseers came to light.Lack of leadership resulted to low morale. We also got paid monthly.

Friendly and safe environment
Effective and safety environment, flexible staff always behind you, enjoying morning routine singing welcome song for everybody while playing my guitar , on special occasions like birthdays we never fail to sing together birthday song, also had fun on doing morning exercise or stretching for those able to, entertained challenging but interesting individual's issues or concern about. Glad on our monthly Speak up meeting, that everybody is encouraged to participate to say something independently, and we end up from reminding individual's right and safety in the community.
