Resident Services Director (Former Employee) – Martinez, GA – January 12, 2016
Walking in the door every morning was like going to my 2nd home as it was warm and inviting. The staff and residents were all wonderful to work with. There were a multitude of personalities in a normal work day, including staff and residents. It was like putting together a puzzle, challenging and exciting.

Community Relations (Former Employee) – San Diego,CA – October 25, 2014
Typical work day...10 to 12 hours. I had to learn how to do most everything without training, including Manager on Duty responsibilities for the entire campus. Resources are thin and support from district directors and corporate headquarters is limited. Co-workers were awesome, caring, hard working people. Hardest part of the job was maintaining census with overly priced rates and unpredictable deaths of residents. Also, the 3 hour time difference between the west coast and Kentucky headquarters. As a result of poor time management by the Directors, everyone is burnt out in 3 months. The most enjoyable part of the job.....the residents and their families.
residents are treated well and attended to by loving staff.
maintains a reputation in the industry as a "revolving door" for ed's, sales staff and rn's.
CNA/Caregiver (Current Employee) – Jackson, TN – May 7, 2014
To begin each day I walk in and setup the tables for breakfast (fix glasses of water, breakfast juice) then I prepare their plates. afterwards me and another coworker clean up (do dishes, sweep floor, clean off tables). then its shower time for most residents. everyday I learn something new rather its about a resident or a different way to do something.i work with a great team of coworkers, we all work as a team. the best part of my job is actually sitting down and hearing stories from different residents lives and interacting with them. management is good but I dislike the fact that they don't do what they say.
3rd Shift Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – Muncie, IN – November 9, 2013
My position can be very challenging most of the time, due to being short staff most of the time. The most enjoyable part is the appreciation that the residents show. Just knowing that I make them feel a little better is very fulfilling. I work with some amazing people, the CNA's that I do have work very hard to do a good job and I appreciate them for that. 3rd shift entails a lot of the administrative paperwork, such as re-writes, MARS, TARS, 30 minutes checks, verify MD orders, check charts, treatments, schedule lab work and much more.

Kitchen Assistant (Former Employee) – Pocahontas, AR – January 9, 2013
Elmcroft was a wonderful place to work with decent health benefits after a certain time. The local management are friendly and helpful. Corporate does not tend to listen to the issues that employees are asked to write in about. The hardest part of my job as a kitchen assistant was leaving the place. The most enjoyable portion of my job was interacting with and getting to know the residents.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Montgomery, AL – June 12, 2012
A typical day at work is very busy but full of love and hugs from the senior citizens that live at elmcroft. I have learned that there is plenty to learn from someone who has live a few 90 or 100 years. My co-workers are very hardworking and dedicated individuals and I am thatnkful to work with such a great team. The hardest part of the job is probably learning to deal with all the different personalities that you encount4er on a daily basis, some of which are not very pleasant. The most enjoyable part of this job is when the residents tell you how much they appreciate you and express their gratitude for the job you do.
free bvreakfast, lunch, and dinner, excellent coworkers and residents.
may lack break time some days and at times have to deal with upset residents.
I would not recommend this place of employment to ANYBODY! The residents were very easy laid back and a joy to help and to around. Management and fellow employees maybe lacking! Theres major conflicts with operation standards.

Certified Nursing Assistant/Resident Care Aid (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – November 4, 2014
An absolute great atmosphere on the job. Management was great, they really cared about any questions and concerns you had. Not only were they great to the residents but really had the employees best interest at heart.The co-workers had great communication skills; don't get me wrong there was some issues, but being mature we used our problem solving skills and solved our issues professionally. Always worked good as a team. The hardest part of the job was probably the dining room, only because of the size and it was pretty time consuming. The more we spent in there the less time we had for the residents. I'd say the most enjoyable part of my job was coming in every day to the smiling faces of residents. Knowing I could make an impact on their days and lives by just simply having conversation or assisting with their needs. They were always so grateful and very thankful, little did they know that they made a huge impact on my life to.
