Memory Program Coordinator (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 21, 2016
It is a great place to work because I'm able to make a difference in the lives of my residents every day. I learned so much about the behavioral side of Alzheimer's and Dementia. The disease touches everyone life differently. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know the residents and their families. My co-workers are great.
Free Meals and great people to work with
Death is evitable and constant when you work with seniors
Personal Assistant Liaison (Former Employee) – Sherman Oaks, CA – May 18, 2016
You get to work and you have crossover where you are suppose to tell the incoming shift any information on residents so that we know if there is something we should watch for. Always lacking in this department. Most of the upper management do no care if you have lives outside of work. They do not try and work with you if you need to make arrangements at work. Favoritism is a huge issue here. It doesn't matter how hard you work you will never get promoted. The only good thing about it is the benefits package and quarterly bonuses. Even then it isn't worth staying there because if its not convenient for them for you to be there you get the boot.
free lunches, quarterly bonuses
not enough staff, to many residents, ridiculous expectations
Patient Care (Former Employee) – houston, tx – March 15, 2016

Activities Coordinator (Current Employee) – Encino, CA – October 10, 2015
Rewarding work place with a very supportive manager.Worked alongside hard-working, fun and disciplined co-workers. The best part of the day was working with the residences on brain activities allowing them to continue use them with creative and unique activities.
I could plan the day with my own activities, using a guideline of the program.Making people's lives more enjoyable.
Pay, Upper management not understanding the real concepts of our job.
Personal assistant liaison (Current Employee) – Suwanee, GA – August 24, 2015
How my day starts at Belmont village us first waking and dressing our residents up, also making there beds. Our goal is to keep the residents happy and always making them feel like they are at home. I believe this work was hard in the beginning but after getting the swing into things it become very easy. Organization played a big part in this kind of work. The part i enjoyed those about working here is establishing a great relationship with the residents.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 14, 2015

Dining Room Coordinator (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – June 9, 2015
Working with seniors and veterans is joyful experience. Listening to their stories and how spent their life and their kids is all fun. It is fun job but it is also hard sometimes over whelming but productive. At the end of the day there is a feeling of satisfaction. It is good feeling.
Resident Care, Dimentia Care (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – April 29, 2014
A typical day at work was pretty mild. I worked 3rd shift so there wasn't a lot going on. I learned a lot about dementia and how to work with those residents. Nurses at the time were on call so sometimes they were not easy to get a hold of in the case of an emergency. The best part of my job was the residents. I felt like I was taking care of dozens of my own grandparents, and I loved it.
The residents were the greatest part of my experience
Personal Assistant caregiver (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 31, 2013
At Belmont Village, I started working there with no experience. My main experience was in accounting. When I started to care for the elderly, I realized this is something I really like to do. I moved to Texas to help care for our mom. She had cancer. She now has passed. I moved bake home in California. I am looking for work as a provider or any job having to do with caring for the elderly.

Concierge (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – August 19, 2013
This is a lock down facility for children so a typical day consists of having a team meeting about how the youth were that day. Bring the youth in and go over afternoon activities, have dinner, get ready for showers, and then they go to sleep. The hardest part about this job is that is was a little stressful. The most enjoyable part was helping the youth learn how to deal with stressful situations so that they can survive within the community.
Resident Aide (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – August 6, 2012
It's not a good place to work. The nurses show favoritism and co-workers refer to African Americans as 'coloreds'. If you are an African American and someone calls you a 'colored' and you don't like it, you will be fired and your co-workers will put some unknown substance in your protein shake to make you sick. Meanwhile, the one who calls you names will continue to keep their job and recieve a promotion.
Driver (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – January 29, 2013
I have branched out to different jobs to find what I love to do. I have learned I love working with people, helping any way I can. A typical day at work is getting there a little early to set up for the day, start the day by my checklist, help whoever needs help and proceed with my job. I love my coworkers because they are nice people who think positive. The hardest part of my job is learning streets and areas in other cities. Management is pretty good for most part, the only thing I would change is the way they discipline workers. If they see someone doing something they should let them know right then and there instead of telling other managers to deal with it later. Over all I am a very positive person who see the positive in everything everyday.
Chef Manager (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – November 1, 2013
Territory and District Managers constantly at odds with each and gave conflicting orders for procedures. Staff very cliquish and it was surprising how prejudice the black staff were against other races. Staff was quick the play the "race card". The Executive Director was the only good part about the job and workplace.
Prejudism among the staff went unchecked and unchallenged
