Community Living Instructor (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – February 25, 2015
A hectic work environment. Learned patience in this company. Management needed more communication. My co-workers were always willing to help out when and wherever needed. The hardest part of this job: not a very functional layout of the home. Most enjoyable: a lot of teamwork and games with the residents
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – November 17, 2014
A typical day would be data entry, filing, making phone calls, taking care of co workers questions and concerns regarding work related situations in different departments of the Agency. Was in charge of all procedures of check run for approximately 200 checks per week. Learned to be more detailed in my work, The hardest part of my job I would say was to make sure the purchase orders were complete to enter in the system. Sometimes there was paper work not quit finished so I had to complete the purchase order as needed. Not that it was hard, it was more of a challenge which is what I love to do I loved seeing the residents come in to the business office.They are happy and appreciate life. I miss working with them. They are exceptional people.
I'm eager to get back in the working field and doing my best for your Company. Please give me the opportunity to show you.
Relief Worker (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – October 8, 2014
The hardest part of this job is knowing that there are people who need so much help with simply day to day stuff. Some having family but do not support them in any way. The best thing about this job is knowing u helped someone in there time of need. As like any job the co-worker can be rude and some can be nice. I've learned that there are people in the world that cant do basic thing so i should not complain about the small things.

Community Living Instructor (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – November 12, 2013
A great job to hold as a college student, it's flexibility in hours and atmosphere of teamwork allow easy integration into job sites and ability to continue working in between and during semesters. We care for individuals with mental and physical disabilities, providing a morally rewarding service. Management is concerned about staff who work there and provide direction and support. Your coworkers become close to you as you create a caring and safe environment for the individuals and team work is essential. The most difficult part of the job is the stress levels associated with direct support positions.

IRA CLI (Current Employee) – Rochester,NY – January 9, 2012
The only reason I gave a 4 star to benefits is because my 10 years experience with elderly persons wasn't take in to consideration as experience... Instead of debating I took a big pay cut, but have no regrets
