Dave Berry: Skills Residential Services Experience

Dave Berry’s uncle resides in one of Skills’ group homes where he receives personalized and loving care 24/7.

Skills’ trained staff ensures Uncle Joe enjoys such activities as ball games, shopping, perusing pet stores, and dining out. He looks forward to each adventure.

The dedicated mentors at Skills also take Joe to see his nephew (rain, snow or shine) in an effort to keep the family connected. Dave appreciates the little extras that make the Skills’ staff unique – and keep his uncle optimistic and engaged.

“Love is at the heart of Skills care,” Dave says. “They’re like an extended loving family; you get all the care and attention that someone needs, plus you get a family. It’s quite remarkable.”

This isn’t Joe’s only positive experience with Skills. He once hired an employee through Skills’ Employment Services as a manager of a State College, PA based company.

He gave a young man an opportunity and his probationary period turned into a “dazzling” experience. Naturally, they took him on as an employee.

“The best kept secret is Skills,” he says. “If you’re looking for someone who will be dedicated and reliable, Skills is where you need to go. Since retiring, I’ve followed up and he’s still there!”
