Support Specialist in ISL
Willow's Way, Org
ISL = Independent Supported Living Work with two gentleman with Developmental Disabilities who each need 24/7 care to live in and maintain an apartment and be actively integrated into their community.
Help them with their routine tasks of shopping, cooking, cleaning, taking medications, transportation, socializing within the community, mentor their attitudes, be observant, and maintain records and reports for Willow's Way and Missouri state agencies. Must also remain current on all training and certifications.
In a short time, both individuals began bonding with me to a far greater degree then they were to others, who had been with them far longer.
Because of my passion for making a difference and abilities and prior experiences in dealing with people with integrity and empathy; I find that dealing with these two individuals stretches my abilities and insight to even further enhance my customer communication skills and patience.
