Fun place to work. Ping pong table to play with the residents!
Activity Assistant (Former Employee) – Belmont, CA – July 24, 2017
I absolutely enjoyed working with my DRE, she was supportive and encouraging. I felt I had support every day I went to work and it was a fun environment. This place encourages you to "play" aka work and have fun.
I learned that most of the time, a blind eye is turned because things seem to be getting by. The hardest part of the job were the overweight dogs seen around the community. Dogs need pack leaders, not to be fed by residents with dementia. If they truly want for this to work, then they need to take care of the dogs. If not, then don't have dogs there at all. It is animal cruelty.
Aside from the downers, hard work is recognized. Gift cards are given to employees to show appreciation, even verbal acknowledgment by managers. That's the biggest thing, getting a verbal, "Hey you did a great job!" means a lot when you work in such a tough environment.
Gift cards given as a thank you for your hard work, great camaraderie between team members.
The lack of care for the animals, especially the overweight dogs.
