Independent Options, Inc.

Direct Care Staff

February - October 2021 • Fullerton, CA

What I liked

Getting to know my clients, learning how to work with adults with intellectual disabilities

What I wish was different

I wish the management was better, with more support and training for staff. It was also advertised as an internship where I would learn about social work/case working, but that did not happen at all.

Advice

It is intense doing direct care giving, so be ready. It’s worth it though, at least for a while. Be ready to advocate for yourself and your clients way out of your comfort zone.
