I think that the program is similar to the Independent Opportunities Inc.(IOI). Not sure who is responsible for the program. I overheard some people talking about this program while waiting in line at the grocery store. From what I gathered one of the people is an employee there and was not real happy about some things.
uh-oh

Yeah, I've heard similar stories from staff that currently work there. From what I understand its a new company. Their not real sure about what their doing and difficult to work for. Their goal from what ive been told is to shut ioi down, take all of their pts. if they dont know what their doing lets hope that doesnt happen
i heard this

I don't know if they are trying to take over IOI but the person who runs that is Sandy Allen and all their staff are Lpns or Cnas so they do have medical training at least

well from what i have heard from a few people who work there if they are not a CNA or LPN themselves they have one on the shift with them at all times.I'm sure there is good & bad in both these companys but i dont think people should complain and gripe when more jobs are being brought to the community.

Everyone they hire is someone that either quit IOI or was FIRED. And they are not CNA's or LPN's!
U cannot handle the truth

If one wants the truth about The Access Program they should talk to the individuals that are being supported by the Access Program that used to be supported by IOI. I would think these people or their family members could give valuable insight about the differences between the two organizations.

There is no competition at Access. Access is a new company serving individuals with care and compassion. not by no means trying to take over IOI. The company is very new to this type of care, but they are making moves in the right direction by all means. As far as Sandy Allen - if you know her then speak the truth- she is a GOOD person with a GOOD heart. Sandy would help in any situation. She would never mishandle any ones money. my god if you know Sandy like you act like you do - then you know she would give you the shirt off her back and never expect anything in return. If you are here to GOSSIP - shut the hell up. That is what is wrong with this 1 pony town, most of you have nothing better to do than make up lies and rumors. I wish Access the very best of luck. If you need further info on the company and the well being of the individuals- Step up and ask, look around at the happiness the individuals are expressing now. Ask the family members that moved them. As far as IOI- good luck with what you have- be thankful your doors are still open. As for Access- may God bless you- I feel that Access cares about the individuals and are not in it for the money..

It is evident you have no clue as to what your talking about! And if you did, you would know that the individuals are expressing how there life is now, AND ITS NOT "HAPPINESS" that they say there experiencing. And the best part of your FALSE statement is that "IOI should be thankful there doors are still open" I loved that one, you have no clue, that they are one of the largest providers in the state of TN. And they still have 3 times(or more) the individuals that Access has.

It is for sure that a few ppl nameless but Identified like this- LF, GP, DC, MP & LW all applied for jobs at Access due to the wrong doing AT IOI.. From what I gather- The ppl switched to the newest company are happy- the families are happy. My GOD why is everything a competition in Fentress Co.? Be happy- jobs are hard to come by- just be happy you are working. You could be sitting at the Unemployment office like your friends and family. SO DAMN STOP THE DRAMA GET A LIFE.. Find something new to BITCH ABOUT>>>>> >>

Let me give you a bit of fist hand information about SA. You sure as hell don't know what your talking about if you think shes a good person. She took a individual that was perfectly happy away from his home and "family" staff that he has had for years and promised the staff and him that everything would be the same. Many false promises were made.Anyone who can take a job away from a single mother with two kids without blinking her cold black eyes is about the lowest form of life that there is.She makes her descisions based on what she can gain by them,If you can support someone like that, I feel sorry for you,and yes I do know what I'm talking about because I am that single mother.
