A terrific team – making a difference!
Facility Managers have at least one year of experience working with people with developmental/intellectual disabilities and have some supervisory experience. Direct care staff often promote into supervisor and Facility Manager positions especially when they have learned the in’s and out’s of the agency and perform their direct care responsibilities well.
Supervisors: Most facilities have a Supervisor who is primarily responsible for training of new staff and scheduling for the facility. They also work regularly scheduled shifts working directly with the clients at the program. Supervisors are usually promoted from within however, outside applicants with at least one year of experience with people with developmental/intellectual disabilities are welcomed to apply.
Residential Support Assistant – RSA’s assist the residents of group homes and apartments with household chores and personal care. Shift work is available 24/7/365 so you can decide when you want to work.
The typical workday of an RSA involves helping residents get up or go to bed, bathe and get ready for work, cooking meals, transporting residents to and from day programs, shopping, or taking the residents out on a variety of community activities. At times, it can be quite busy, but there is still time during the shifts to kick back and “hang out” with the residents.
Relief Staff fill in for any of the direct care staff when they are sick, on vacation, or fill shifts temporarily when there is an opening. The Relief staff is expected to perform the same duties and receive the same training as regular staff. While they have a more flexible schedule and can decide which shifts to accept, they are expected to fill the shifts they commit to and are held to the same standards as regular staff. Many relief workers eventually move into full-time jobs.
