Great entry-level job with tons of responsibility
Life Skills Instructor (Current Employee) – Bethel, CT – January 5, 2018
Ability Beyond is great if your looking for an entry level position in the healthcare industry. the agency pays trainings, and ensures you're up to date with everything. Working with individuals with disabilities is great, but very challenging when it comes to responsibility. Most group homes require you to work long hours (up to 12 - but possibly more depending on call outs and/or weather conditions). Responsibilities include providing transportation, teaching or providing home economics, bathing, toothbrushing, financing/budgeting and medication administration, to name a few. Each group home has a different manager - mine was awesome. benefits include 401K, health care including medical and dental, PTO, holiday pay, time and a half.
Hardest part of the job is the demanding tasks when it comes to caring for immobile consumers, and mentally unstable individuals.
Providing a gratifying quality of life for disabled individuals, good work life balance
