Well I use to work at Advoserv and the truth is most of the negative things being said is true. I left because I was forced out. One of the things people need to remember is that none of these people asked to be born with a disability and for all this drama to be taking place around them its sad. Its true all of it smoking pot, sleeping with each other and the likes. While I understand everyone is human and can do as they please, the fact is when you work for individuals with disabilities you need to check your ego, and drug habits at the door.

Advoserv FL - parents take your kids out of there- they are being abused in all different ways by staff that want to be bullies to innocent people, i guess it makes them feel big and bad. staff never interacts with the clients either; clients are treated like slaves or ignored.
Tammy,

Please get in touch with me or anyone else here who has information about this place. My son was in there and has scars, physically and emotionally. Please contact me.

I too once worked in a group home enviroment in another state, I too was fired for standing up for clients safety .. I was told to leave the room until the abuse stopped .. I told them in no uncertain terms I would not look the other way to abuse ...and was told no longer employed with them... which was fine by me ... 1 yr. Later company got shut down and CEO now in prison for stealing clients social security checks .... so hopefully if this type of behavior is happening (which I am sure it is very possible) hopefully the truth will come out and be investigated by the proper authorities.

The fact is that when you work there if you are not apart of their nonsense you become a target. I read on one of the post someone speaking about feeding them and bathing them as if its excuses them from treating these people with respect. You are an idiot you get paid to do what you do its not a favor so shut your damn ignorant mouth up. Many others including myself have worked my way up starting with direct care services and no matter what my clients did to me I still continued as I understood is was due to lack of communication skills. There were ppl in very high position smoking weed and taking lunch breaks for 2 hours or more. When I dealt with them they made me feel like I was the crazy one. All I have to say kimbev is that God is not sleeping its will all come crashing down really soon. Disgusting people who knows nothing that what they are so happy I left when I did thank God.

If you people are so worried about your family members being at such risk why would you leave them there? If was me I'd take them out. I dont cafe what that means you let them suffer? It makes no sense!

some people have no choice and my understanding is that to be in a socalled state facility you are made a ward of the state thus making it difficult to remove your relative and the fact the facility gets 90k per resident so they really dont want to let that chunk of money they have been using for tattoos, and nites out at the valley view go

If all these things go on there and the higher ups of the company have been made aware what does that tell you? Seems they just dont care and its about money. As someone else said God is watching and everyone will have to answer to their wrongdoings. From what I have heard anyone that is concerned or questions there methods evenually gets fired. Its definitely not a place I would want to work. Its really sad that no one cares for these people.

99.99 percent of the abuse that occurs wouldn't be considered the same as whatt some people call abuse. When a 300lb individual starts charging at you and bites through your skin, pull out you're hair, scratch your skill until it breaks the skin. I've originally did not initiate but when your getting paid 10/5 or 12 its crazy. "If anything residents believe it OK to attack staff. In Hewitt, staff members receive black eyes on a daily basis.

I'm not talking about the "normal" stuff that happens in a home like this. That stuff is normal for this type of job so if a staff member cannot control himself then get a new job, the abuse that was witnessed was unprovoked and even if she did charge you you have been trained to bring the person down to the mat without harming them, the abuse I spoke of was a punch in the face to a resident sitting on a chair and a drop kick both unprovoked and abuse

dont you see all these posts? Why would you put your child there? I just got word that two female employees were allowed to "resign" rather than face charges, I made this complaint in March 2010 to the state and darren Blough at advoserv in Trenton and they only just found out these chicks were stealing money from the residents
