Restorative Aide Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Restorative Aide?

Restorative Aide in Houston:
"Rewarding."
Pros: What I like most about my job is the fact that I get results. Working with a person who needs two or more individuals to assist with transfers, then watching that person learn to make a few steps then finally walks by his/her self is very rewarding. It is rewarding because I can make a difference. I watched individuals overwhelmed with joy because they were given the opportunity to go home and be with their family.
Cons: What don't like about my job is the pay.
