Full-time OT evaluating & treating clients in independent living, ALF & SNF settings. Performed community “health talks” for well-elderly in the community. Identified & treated the therapy needs of elderly living independently to allow them to “age in place” successfully
Excellent communication with interdisciplinary team. Increased productivity due to therapy schedule
Speech Language Pathologist CCC-SLP (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – November 12, 2014
Great company to work for due to effective management and continuing education courses. Scheduling patients in the morning between disciplines increased organization as well as productivity. Very knowledgeable and experienced team
Nice place to work but at the time poor management
Contracted Physical Therapist Assistant (Former Employee) – The Villages, FL – January 16, 2014
Good place to work but when I worked here the management was very poor. But, from what I understand they cleaned house and it is much improved. The work environement is top notch. The work is very diverse and keeps it interesting. You can work in home health, independant outpatient and assisted living all in the same day.
Over the 4 years I have worked for the company I have enjoyed both communities that I have worked in and the staff in both communities. Worked with geriatrics and some dementia patients. Flexible schedules however lacked some space and equipment.
RN-CASE MANAGER, (Current Employee) – Greenwood Village, CO – November 16, 2013
I would spend the morning charting and planning for the day and clients, I would go out and see 5-8 clients a day and come home and chart and make phone calls. I love caring for clients and making their day and health better.
Home Health LVN (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 7, 2013
This company has such an outstanding nursing staff. On a typical day I would see on average on 8-10 patients. I learned about prioritizing my work schedule to make all appointments on time. The office staff was great with scheduling so that all nurses had a similar work schedule, so they did not get overwhelmed.
Business Coordinator (Current Employee) – Greenwood Village, CO – July 14, 2013
My day always starts at 7:45 with a conference call to catch up on my departments updates. My first task of the day always begins with organizing my department's payroll. Other tasks for the day can include: Scheduling for Hospice associates, complete management of personnel files and client files, human resources responsibilities, running and developing new reports, accounts payable, facilitating IDT meetings, inputting and updating client information into HCHB, ordering medical and technical supplies. The most enjoyable part of my job is my co-workers and assisting my co-workers to enrich the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence, and integrity.
Therapist (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, ca – April 25, 2013
I was offered a part-time position as a therapist specifically for one facility, but after accepting the position, was asked if I would consider "occasionally " working at a separate facility which was a considerable distance from my home. It turned out that they were actually planning to use me at the long-distance location primarily, with essentially non- existent scheduling at the facility location for which the job was posted, and for which I had accepted. After this manipulative experience, I would not consider working for this company under any circumstances. Right out of the gate, it speaks oceans about the culture of the company.
Leadership skills are lacking; able to manage business but not lead people
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Seminole, FL – April 12, 2013
This company is very focused on business goals and does not support their employees adequately when difficulties arise. Good leaders can be fair to all involved and mediated for a win win. This is also an unusual home model. Office structure and clinical model is based on the different communities that Brookdale has. They are the largest senior housing provider in USA and they have independent, ALF and skilled care. Residents are encouraged to use the Brookdale facilities to facilitate smooth transition from hospital to home. They also provide outpatient therapy in the home (ALF). They are very well positioned to endure the future. VERY therapy focused business model. Nursing services are secondary; nurses do all Oasis documentation and case manage up to 35 - 40 clients with LPN assist.
good salary, good client base
not a friendly workplace; unusual home care model, push to transition to medicare part b.
therapist (Former Employee) – Illinois – February 21, 2013
Productivity that is absurdly unreasonable... dangerously small work spaces as I considered calling OSHA a few times...illegal and fraudulent behaviors of upper level management.... concerns of employees fall on deaf ears...I could go on and on...I have to human resources but again deaf ears....pathetic work environment....affects patients poorly....if you value your professional license don't work here!
my immediate co-workers...we bonded through necessity to call out wrongdoings
