Supporting individuals with special needs brings a host of unique challenges and opportunities. The individuals that I work with make every day fulfilling; and I know my work is making a positive impact in helping each individual to grow, gain skills and work towards independence.
With regards to the pandemic, I look at it this way, they need a caring person who they are familiar with to go through this hard time. Caring for these individual's needs, even though I was a little scared because I also have a child at home that I don’t want to get him sick. We make it happen.
I like seeing them happy and you can see that they appreciate you and love the care that they are receiving. That brings me joy. I love working at CSS and making a difference in someone's life.
