For 12 years I worked as a part-time direct service staff and ended up as a team leader supervising a team in Chesapeake supporting 11-16 individuals with cognitive, mental, and physical challenges. Some of my responsibilities included: *Overseeing and providing support with all activities of daily living including *Oversight and reporting of all money management including budgets, bill paying, and spending money *Oversight of all medications, medical conditions, medical appointments, and health and well-being *Leading the team in developing and implementing individual service plans, training objectives, daily services checklists, person centered services, and essential lifestyle plans *Providing support around transportation, community participation, volunteering opportunities, education, work opportunities, etc. *Communicating with and working together with case management, day support programs, transportation providers, medical professionals, mental health care professionals, and family members in the ongoing care of people we supported *Managing day-to-day operations of the team, finances, budgets, billing, payroll, scheduling, supply ordering, analysis of data, team communication, organization, and etc. *Supervision of 24-32 full and part-time staff, including dealing with personnel issues, training requirements, meetings, hiring process, orientation, and ongoing support *Developing, documentation, and generation of Medicaid waiver billing reports *Oversight, review, quality assurance and maintenance of all records as well as the database *and on-call support of team 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I grew up regularly going with my father to visit home-bound, nursing homes, and hospitals. I'd help with housekeeping, yard work, meals, laundry, and personal care. We'd go for walks, play games, read aloud, sing, write letters, and talk. I'd stay with those who were sick, recovering from surgeries, were injured, or were in the end stages of life. Over the years, I've volunteered to care for many friends, neighbors, church members, and family members. For 2 years I devoted myself full-time to 8 individuals with cancer including my son's dad and my mother. Care giving is my passion, it is where you will see my heart revealed. I bring passion, compassion, mercy, patience, kindness, gentleness, hard work, loyalty, dependability, integrity, humor, honesty, flexibility, creativity, and enthusiasm to my work.
