Good concept
Supply Chain Manager (Former Employee), Denver, COFebruary 19, 2014
Certian staff members can be trained in the art of being civil to co-workers. Plus they need to realize this is the 21st century not the 1800's

Management is terrible
CNA/QMAP (Current Employee), Denver, COFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: residents
Cons: boss, hard to get your breaks on days and you can't express your feelings without getting in trouble, no support for employees.
Working with the residents was great IF you had enough time to do your job. Day shift is pounded with a bunch of responsibilities while evening and night shift don't do too much. The DON for AL at Clermont Park does not care about her employees and if you speak your mind you will be pushed out. I've heard great things about the other communities and – more... SNF DON. The company has a great concept in mind and I love that they are Eden. Most of my co-workers are amazing. Hardest part of my job is not being able to do for my residents what they truly need and not being backed by your own manager. The turn over rate for this specific floor is terrible as well which makes it hard on our memory support residents. Beware the DON here. – less

Good stated client values, employees not readily valued
Personal Care Associate (Former Employee), Greenwood Village, COJuly 11, 2013
Pros: training opportunities
Cons: no benefits, lack of regular schedule, unrecognized potential
Home Care and Adult Day Service are both client focused jobs. High value is placed on pleasing and appeasing the client and their family.

Management is perceived to be controlling and not open to input and collaboration from the employee. Very focused on leadership that demonstrates a "my way or the highway" approach.

Management often says one thing – more... and lives out the other. The manager is on salary and works long hours both at home and on site. Hourly employees that use time at home to go the extra mile developing a project to better serve clients are disciplined rather than celebrated for their creativity and passion.

Co-workers demonstrate loyalty to the leadership for self-promotion in meetings, but often complain afterward about lack of support, long hours and no compensation for shared ideas.

Training opportunities are very high quality and are designed to provide professional understanding of the care of the elderly. CLC offered specific training to lead to certification with the Colorado Alzheimer's Association.

The most enjoyable part of the job is serving the clients. It is most often quite easy to develop a caring relationship that benefits the client in their emotional, spiritual and physical health at a fragile time of life.

The hardest part of the job is the necessity of being available at hours that are contrary to healthy family life in most cases. This is the nature of Home Health Care. Secondary to availability is the emotional toll when a client passes away or moves on to the next stage of care in the continuum. – less

Great work environment for staff and happy place for the residents.
CNA/ QMAP (Former Employee), Centennial, COMay 2, 2012
Pros: company picnics, holiday celebrations, and job security.
Cons: twelve hour work days.
I enjoyed my fifteen years with CLC and will always be grateful for the experience and opportunity to work with and for such qualified nurses and piers. Going to work every day was a pleasure because we would rotate floors and duties (never a dull moment). Lifting residents,after a fall, was probably the most difficult to deal with because of my concern – more... for the resident and the possibility of injury. Getting to know the residents and their families over the years and bonding with my co-workers like an extended family. – less

Not Flexible or organized
CNA Float pool (Former Employee), Denver, COMarch 15, 2012
Pros: loved the residents!
Cons: unorganized, not flexible
I worked for them as a float pool CNA, I was told I would know 2 weeks in advance what my schedule would be and usually I was calling them 2-3 days in advance to find out when I worked that week. I had a sick child at home and had to stay with them and they were very rude to me about it. I never took advantage of my sick time/pto and was a very responsible – more... person. Also, most of the CNA's who were working on a regular basis were very rude and lazy. As a float pool CNA you will go to all of their locations, none of which are ran the same or have the same policies. – less

DebbieBreitkreuz – April 19, 2012

Thank you for bringing this concern to our attention. It is very important to us that our employees feel valued and respected, and the issue you mentioned is currently being addressed. It is our practice to take shift requests from the various CLC communities two weeks in advance and then begin filling the shifts. Being a float pool, we also receive many last minute requests which cannot be scheduled in advance. I apologize if you were not informed in a timely manner of your scheduled shifts and if the communication was inappropriate; neither of these approaches supports the mission of our organization.
