Assistant Resource and Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Bethel, CT – February 7, 2017
Working in the human services field with adults that have acquired brain injuries can be challenging at times. But seeing their expression on their faces after helping them with their daily living skills and integrating them into the community is satisfying. The work environment is a great one as everyone is there for the same reason and that is to ensure that each individual reach their goals and live a fulfilling life. In working in this field for over 10 years I have learned many things such as understanding the needs of others, patience and responsibility. Apart from this the only downside is that there no room for growth.
Working with these individuals gives a warming feeling. Learning about them and interacting with them, they become more like family everyday. One can become very easily attached to these guys and girls.

I love working for this company. You learn so much and get to make a big difference in people's lives. You will get a lot of hands on experience working in this field. The managers that I've worked with are great about hearing your feedback and concerns and doing their best to help you. I always feel very supported and valued.
Development Manager (Current Employee) – Bethel, CT – October 6, 2016
Everything from the people I work with to the tasks I am doing every day is amazing. I feel so grateful to have found such an amazing organization to work with. I worked at non-profits in the past that didn't care about the true mission of the organization but at AB this is not the case. Everyone here truly keeps the mission at heart when they are doing their job each day.
co-workers, folks we serve, opportunity for advancement, innovation
Residential Assistant (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – December 19, 2016
the pay was good and the benefits were great, but management styles made the job increasingly unpleasant. There was a lot of backstabbing and negativity in certain areas, but the main focus was on the residents, which is most important.

This company is great for individuals that are currently in school or is looking to get into the counseling and medical field. I learned a lot of medical terms while working there. Management was really cool, workplace was fun but filled with employee drama. Overall I would recommend this company to people.
Residential Assistant (Current Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – August 3, 2016
I work for the Independent Houses in NY and the clients there are great. You obviously have to get to know them. They are pretty much barely home so you have to waste time hopping from house to house which means if you're scheduled 30 hrs do NOT depend on it. The pay is good compared to the actual work you do. You get offered a pay raise at the beginning of each year but don't expect much from what you're already offered. The benefits are great if you need coverage but try avoid using it because you'll be paying basically the entire bill anyways. This job is good for experience in a disability setting but you will not grow beyond your potential here. There's no room for becoming more than an RA (Residential Assistant). This is not your last resort, try to find something better!
Clients are manageable, can take them anywhere you want as an outing.
Hours are not guaranteed, no room to move up in company
love helping our clients accomplish there long term and short term goals.Great staff members working together and comunicating to one another to provide the best care for the clients.hardest part of the job is not knowing what to expect for the day everyday is different. there can be changes with a indiviual client at anytime. managment is very good at having things in place for the clients providing staff to give the best care.
Registered Nurse/Primary Care Nurse (Current Employee) – Bethel, CT – April 23, 2016
St. Luke's Hospital was convenient, not too big of an institution but big enough to be able to provide care for the immediate community. However, too many patients I've encountered shared too many negative experiences either during their ER visit or their hospitalization.
Convenient and offer various advanced medical treatment and services
Patient care is disorganized and at times poor quality
