As a Residential Team Lead at NeuroRestorative’s neurorehabilitation program in Rayham, Massachusetts, Bob Alves has gained the trust and respect of staff and program participants alike for his ability to connect with individuals with acquired brain and spinal cord injuries and prepare them for the journey home. “My mission is to give people a second chance at life,” says Bob. And he does. Respect, trust—along with common sense and a sense of humor—are hallmarks of his approach to service.
