Stop allowing members to use Birch as a retirement home. Members begin to decline after 18-24 months being in the same location, rotate them around. Listen to staff more than the therapist, staff know these members better than the therapist. Establish consequences for member actions instead of allowing them to give excuses. Get a better hold of the drug problem that plagues the member which makes it harder for staff to work. Allow management to run there own sites how they see fit, Directors and Associate directors know their sites better than Admin. Establish requirements to hire staff to get better qualified staff.

Realize that not every member is there to make themselves better so it makes recovery assistance job harder to satisfy the leaders of Birch. Find a way to interview these members better so beds arnt being filled up with members who simply don't care no matter the effort you put in. And come up with a plan to have the member responsible for their actions so staff can feel safer when they get violent or inappropriate. If we are teaching the member "to live a satisfying life in the community" then have a new way of teaching them that no matter where they are, they have to take accountability for their actions. Just like the member would have to do when they get discharged from Birch.

Notes are horrible and if you want them to be independent then they have to clean and be responsible for their actions. It'll be hard on them if they think they can get away with the things they do while their at Birch when they get in real world.
