Residential Support Mentor (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB26 September 2018
A typical day at work would include caring for residents and teaching clients everyday life skills, administering medications, ensuring safety of clients. Ive learned patience and time management.
The hardest part of the job would be observing incidents which involved drug overdose suicide attempts. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to connect with clients and learn about their backgrounds.
Pros
Free movie admission
Cons
poor management

Growing in understanding as an employer. Staff are treated better as time goes on.
Residential Support Mentor/Houselead (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB6 September 2017
FASD Life's Journey has very good aboriginal cultural programming. There are a lot of very good staff working in the organization. There continues to be better and better communication between management and front line staff. Some of the positions deal with very difficult situations.They are not paid better than the ones that have a more straight forward client to work with.
Pros
Management is taking front line staff's point of view more serious.
Cons
Management runs their office staff until they're burnt out.

Great experience for those interested in working with disabilities
House Manager/Support Mentor (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, Manitoba18 August 2013
I've been employed with this agency for almost five years and although there has been some major overhaul, it's been a great experience. I have gained a lot of knowledge of 'Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder', mental illness, staff relationships, and was managing my own house and resident which was a positive experience. Although I am relocating to Halifax, Nova Scotia, I will miss all the residents and staff at my agency!

A typical day would include inventory of cash, medications, and sharp/locked up materials (i.e - knives). Plan shift activity with resident, cook meals, clean/general maintenance to residence, participate in activity with resident in the community, administer medication, handle any crisis that may present itself in the moment/future, re-inventory of materials, wait for next staff to begin shift and debrief them about shift.

If you were a House Manager like I was, you would be responsible for managing staff's daily activities, month end cash in/cash out, attend any medical/family/legal meetings with resident, document house needs, and resident's requests.
Pros
Great pay, benefits, room for advancement, flexible hours, experience with disabilities
Cons
High risk of burn out, scheduling mix ups, must have your own vehicle
