AUI (DD Homes Network) could be an excellent place to work. It is very rewarding work but admins make it unbearable.
What I like
I loved working with the individuals and knowing I made a difference in their lives. Staff is able to accompany individuals on day trips and dine outs so that is very fun.
What I dislike
Administration is non productive. They do not operate with the individuals in mind, only the bottom dollar and covering their selves
Suggestions for improvement
Direct support personnel should be paid appropriately. They provide direct care and have a ton of responsibility and are not paid accordingly. Nursing needs more bodies. I was the only nurse for 70 people in 3 towns. That’s too much.
