Personal Supports Highlight Rick Broyles
Here at Richcroft, we have an amazing personal supports team. This month we would like to highlight Rick Broyles for going above and beyond for those he supports. One client said, “Rick’s teaching did not stop with Ian. His wealth of knowledge of programs, procedures, and out-of-the-box ideas carried over to my husband and me. He has become part of our family.”

Tell us one good thing that’s happened at work this month?
I will give you two. I got to see my client be excited to return to in-person programming and attend everything he has been waiting over a year for (when I first started with the client, he did not want to go anywhere or do anything, now he loves getting out). In a meeting I got to see my client excited about the services he receives and articulate what he wanted (this is a big change from when I first met him).
