If you are a direct care worker with the Department of Human Services, Disability Services, Disability Accommodation Services, and you are keen to do good work, such as quality of life care, interaction, developmental and social activities (Active Support), as promoted within your ACRACS or Certificate 4, with the residents of DHS group homes, discourage anyone, especially parents/families, from saying you are good.
This government department officially considers all its staff are equal. They don’t, therefore, like tall poppies. So you will be cut down in one way or another.
Families also, get reprimanded for daring to praise good staff
