Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Dennisport, MA – June 14, 2016
Program managers lack support for their staff. High staff turn over.Reimbursements take very long time. When inquiring about reimbursement the excuse is that request wasnt submitted even though the requests are submitted repeatedly. Low pay rate.
House is nice and clean and functionable
Poor staff support. High staff turn over. Low wages.
Mental Health Counselor (Former Employee) – Attleboro Massachusettes – June 14, 2015
As a mental health counselor, my day involved hands on care for individuals with various disabilities. Teaching them how to adapt and care for themselves. Patience and humility was taught daily through the clients I worked with. I enjoyed working closely with a small group of loving and caring individuals. There was never a rough day at work or a tough moment. I enjoyed everyday.
Professional and creative atmosphere, work with the developmentally disabled population from infants, school age, adulthood to senior years
Case manager (Former Employee) – Milford, MA – July 12, 2012
a typical day would be going on scheduled home visits, teaching life skill, handling medical, legal, financial appointments. Working with contracting agencies, the public and private sector. Time management was important. Communication with superiors, paperwork, reports etc were done in timely and proficient manners. The hardest part of the job was when emergencies came up and someone was hospitalized or injured. The most enjoyable part of the job was when we were able to have an enjoyable outing with a client (or several) ex. beach days, car races, movies etc.
very family oriented agency. flexibility with hours, rewarding work, great atmosphere in the office, able to work outside the office
when emergencies happened it could throw a monkey wrench in your scheduled appointments.
