Chuck (right) has been a Direct Support Professional with COR for almost 5 years. He enjoys taking Rodney to Bowl-mor on Friday nights during the fall and winter to attend ARC bowling and watch Rodney achieve a high score with all those strikes! Chuck and Rodney also enjoy attending People First to discuss and share new and ongoing things for people with disabilities. Chuck and Rodney attend Different Drummer Dances, People First (Martin and Jackson counties), movies at the local theatre, seeing all the lights during Christmas (from here to Mankato), the Fairmont or Jackson races and going out to eat fast food.
Rodney has many interests and talents that include attending church, beating all of his staff and housemates at Wii bowling, and gambling (and winning big) at Jackpot Junction. He enjoys watching Ellen, daytime soaps, and don’t forget about the Vikings and WWE. Rodney is a wiz at the iPad with facebook and all the casino slot games. If there is a parade close, Rodney is sure to be there to see the firetrucks and hear all the noise!
Chuck says he enjoys working with Rodney as he is lighthearted, always ready to have fun, and just a joy to be around. Chuck commented that working at COR is a place where there is flexibility, approachable management, and hard work is acknowledged and rewarded.
If you see Rodney and Chuck in the community, you are sure to be met with smiles and laughter … and probably some antics as well.
