Personal Assistant /Caregivers care for our clients in a professional and compassionate manner. It’s an often demanding job as you will have to be available for most of the day and week. But, it can also be very satisfying and rewarding, since people who are ill, injured, disabled or elderly are thankful for high-quality assistance. The ideal candidate will be patient and friendly with excellent communication skills. You should be able to follow instructions and perform a variety of tasks to help clients. Personal Habilitation (PAB) Workers provide one on one assistance to individuals of all ages with special needs in their homes and/or in the community. PAB workers help these individuals to acquire, retain and improve skills that allow them to be more self-sufficient, engage in opportunities which identify and expand personal interests and build skills in self-advocacy. In order to meet outcomes/goals set forth in individualized plans, these individuals often need assistance with activities of daily living, social and leisure skill development, building relationships and exploring natural supports, as well as expanding volunteer/employment opportunities. Training and Consultation services may be provided to clients with high levels of challenging or manipulative behaviors.
