This week, we want to spotlight Alexis Thomas. She has been with us for almost 2 years. When we asked her what she loves about her job, she had this to say: "I learned to understand a new way of communication, and being able to give my participants their own voice. I have learned that even though we can't fix everything, our presence is enough in our participants eyes. There's not a better feeling than making a change, and being enough." Thank you Alexis for being a great person! We appreciate you!

We have so many great employees that it is difficult to pick who to brag about on our page. However, it is very easy to boast about Dewey Andersen! Dewey works as a Night Support Trainer and has been with us now for a little over 1.5 years. Dewey is often early for work which shows how awesome his work ethic is! He takes great pride in making sure he does his job correctly ensuring the home is clean each night and the residents cared for. He will not leave work if his job is not complete. He truly cares for the residents and does everything possible to build a good relationship with them so he can provide the best care possible. A quote from his supervisor: "Dewey is one of my best employees and really stands out to me." Thank you Dewey for all you do! We love that you are part of the Developmental Options Team!
