Nice place to work
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee), East Rochester, NYJanuary 30, 2015
Pros: free meals. sometimes free movies and other activites.
Cons: no breaks
Direct Support Professionals at Heritage Christian Services help assist people with developmental disabilities in their day to day lives. Staff are trained in a wide variety of things including adult, child and infant CPR. Management and co-workers are hit or miss. Sometimes this type of field attracts not the best employees. But it also attracts some very caring employees. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the difficult co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know the people that you are helping.

Resident counselor/ Recreation Specialist
Recreation Specialist/Resident Counselor (Former Employee), East Rochester, NYAugust 30, 2014
I worked in a resident home as a resident counselor for four years. I provided personal care and assistance with daily living skills. I also provided prescribed medicine. At the end of each shift we documented for each individual we worked with. The last year I was promoted to a management position as a Recreation Specialist. In this position I managed the staff on shift. I also put together activities and celebrations for holidays and birthdays.

Assistant Manager
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Webster, NYJuly 10, 2014
Pros: flexible positions, great benefits, understanding workforce
Cons: ignorant managers, constantly under staffed
I was a manager at heritage for quite a few years. Heritage, as an agency, is AMAZING. The benefits and job security are outstanding, however the amount of power they place in the hands of the residence managers is atrocious and they expect 300% of your time and efforts. If I could find a balance between the amount they expect me to be at work (or be involved in extra curricular work activities) I would never leave. The best part of this job was having fun and doing fun activities while on the clock. You build lifelong relationships with the people you support, and I will never regret that!

Pros: understading, caring, great enviornment

This company not only cares about the individuals it serves but, also those that it employs. They are always taking strides to better serve and accommodate their employees better. They work with you on scheduling and are understanding when family issues or schooling comes around.

I really enjoyed working with the consumers and taking them out on outings to keep them busy. I loved that it was a home setting and the staff were team players at all times. Management was always there to lend a helping hand which was different from other jobs I've had in the pass.

Great day hab at Cayuga Ext. in Niagara Falls, NY
Relief Staff Teaching Assistant (Current Employee), Cayuga at Niagara Falls, NYFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: being able to assist & help people with disabilities. clean & friendly environment, great benefits/full time
Cons: at another day hab, not willing to try new ideas to helping them learn new things and no one should be left out.
I really enjoyed working with the people that come to the day hab and being able to teach them life skills so they can live and work out in the real world. Cayuga Day Hab has the best staff and have great people who love just going there to learn and help out in the community also. No matter what disability a person may or may not have, they should be respected like you & I and that's what the Cayuga Day Hab Staff does best. I wish I could work there 5 days a week, but I am only a relief staff and help out when they are short staffed.

Job can turn into career
Assistant House Manager (Former Employee), east Rochester, nyJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: good health benefits (if single, got expensive the more covered), some bonus'
Cons: lack of communication, not getting support when others aren't pulling their weight
I started as a resident counselor, and was involved in the direct care for adults with disabilities. Within 6 months, I took the course to become a direct support professional, which lead to being a nationally certified direct support professional.
Before my 2nd anniversary, I became an assistant manager, and loved my position. I thought I was going to go all the way and become a residence house manager, especially after filling in for the residence manager over a year span (not continuously.)
Being an assistant manager you take on the role of manager, but will be required to do direct care as well. There is a lot of computer data entry, and time sensitive documentation that needs to be completed.
There are a lot of benefits that the company provides, and bonus' sometimes, but it is a hard job physically and mentally. The pay could be higher for what is expected of you.
