Gallagher, so far, had been the one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. I site managed two group homes for disabled adults and 8-10 staff.
Pros: unbelievable training by my boss
Cons: lack of support from public figures
Handled all functions of houses - directing staff for housekeeping duties, class and training duties, all aspects of care for the individuals - food, meds, day programs, doc appts, outings. On manager's level, took classes, managers meetings, interacted with state and county depts regulating group homes. Hardest part of job is maintaining interest on staffing side due to the intensity of the work and lack of public recognition and respect for the terrific job staff does.
