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

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.
