REHAB ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Ithaca, NY – August 8, 2013
Pros: excellent benefits, paid time off, and double time on holidays. there was always opportunities for overtime if you wanted it.
Cons: sometimes short staffing, stress, at the community residence if you were the only staff on you couldn't leave the property.
My typical day when I first started with Lakeview was to arrive at the community residence, and have a shift review with the other staff. Then to go out in the house and check in with the residence. Then to ensure that the ingredients for the dinner were available. I would also meet with my clients, I had 4 on my caseload. We would talk about different – more... goals they had on their service plans. Depending on the day I would assist the residence with packing their medications.
Later when I moved to the apartment program I would go out into the community and meet with the residence in apartments that were rented by Lakeview. This was the 2nd level of independence where staff would assist residents with continuing their goal of living on their own. Residents would come to the office to meet with staff to pack their medications. The rest of the interaction would be at their apartment or in the community. I had 6 to 7 residents on my caseload while at the apartment program level.
I learned how to write a billable note. The service plans were developed so that proof could be showed that residents were working on their independence. These bills were then submitted to medicaid for reimbursement for the agency. I also learned a lot about myself. I have a better understanding of mental illness as well as drug addiction.
For the most part management were really approachable. I never felt intimidated, or that my input was not valuable.
All my coworkers were all great to work with. They also taught me a lot. They were a great source of support. We would all help each other with writing billable notes when we had interactions with their residents.
The hardest part of of working at Lakeview was knowing what a resident wanted to do and not being able to tell them what to do. It is hard because you didn't want to watch them struggle with their illness, but they needed to make those connections for themselves.
The most enjoyable part of working with Lakeview was my interactions with the residents as well as my coworkers. I was also able to go on trips with residents to different places such as Mystic Connecticut. – less
