they are an ever evolving place to work that is adapting to the needs of the residents in their care and trying to make them more involved in the community. they listen to ideas that staff bring with an open mind and willingness to implement the idea if it is suitable.
I usually assist employment specialists in planning and creating fun and engaging activities for clients. I learned to interact with people with cognitive disabilities/ how to communicate in both a casual and formal way. Our management is good; they are supportive and help to maintain a work-life balance. The workplace culture is a family-like culture where you will not feel nervous or stressed. The hardest part was to handle to clients because some of them were very sensitive and they need extra care and attention. The most enjoyable part was to create activities and doing them.
A good place to start especially if you are interested in working with individuals who face physical as well as mental disabilities. I only worked there for a summer term that was funded by the Canadian government but during the time I was employed there, I learned a lot about myself and the people I worked with.
Participants are welcoming, friendly. Well maintained facility and plenty of activities to do. This is one of the few environments that you can work in where most people (the participants) will not judge you. Come as you are, if you are a decent person with reasonable traits and go-with-the-flow attitude, you will have no issues. Some staff have cliques but that is common at work sites.
Great participants, fun activities, really rewarding
Lots of events for the kids that go there and it is a lot of fun to take part in setting up the events as well as talk to all the different people. Would definitely recommend.
Management genuinely cares about their employees. The most enjoyable part is that you get to take part in some really fun activities. The hardest part is that you have to be very adaptable to change as anything can happen. This review only pertains to the Personal Development Program. I can't speak for any of the other programs.
