Assisted Living Care Manager (Current Employee), Denver, COMarch 3, 2014

Most difficult aspect was working overnights.
Most enjoyable aspect was the knowledge of helping people in their daily lives and knowing that their lives were better off than before. – less

Fun and rewarding place to work
LVN Care manager (Current Employee), Beverly Hills, CAFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: one on one care, create bonds with the residents and their families, 3$ meals for employees.
Cons: can get a bit stressing when it is really busy.
I assist the elderly with activities of daily living. I reminisce with them on past life events, take care of them when they get sick and create a close relationship with them and their families. Do vital signs, first aid, incident reports as needed.

facilitated art group
Volunteer (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: volunteer
Cons: no challenge
I worked within the activities department and sometimes with the Activities Coordinator. I was a self-starter but had a little help from the Activity Coordinator with facilitating a painting group with a few ladies that enjoyed painting as much as I did. I mainly worked on my own, socializing with residents including dementia residents. The hardest – more... part would be to persuade residents to participate sometimes. The most enjoyable was interacting with residents and participating in the activities with them. – less

Loving residents, evil staff, and managers
Caregiver (Former Employee), Johns Creek,GaFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: loving residents
Cons: management, staff, pay
A typical day of work: Arrive at 7am and they(managers) expect for you to have residents in dining room by 8am. And remember its 8-9 residents for 1person, wake up,change,etc. 10am all residents must be in room. Do showers, laundry, changing, etc. 11:30am start getting residents down for lunch at 12. You take resents down, take orders,serve, and clean – more... up dining room. 1:30 pm take resents back up, clean, change, check laundry. 2:30 do your last round. I learned how these seniors have so much to teach. Co-workers were horrible!!!! They verbally abused residents, didn't shower them(would write in the book that they didn't want a shower), would leave them wet and with feces. Once I spoke to upper management they didn't do anything, they got me out because a company doesn't like their dirty laundry out. assisted living coordinator had "hot spots" because families would pay her under the table to take "extra care" of certain residents. Hardest part of the job: they want you to do everything in that 8hour period, no break nothing. Kitchen would run out of food and serve the same thing 2x a week. Residents were so loving and caring. kitchen staff were rude and unprofessional. PLEASE I BEG YOU DO NOT TAKE YOUR FAMILY TO SUNRISE OF JOHNS CREEK!!!!!!! – less

workplace very enjoyable
Mills Run Senior Living (Former Employee), bristol,paFebruary 16, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: the disbelief that others not willing to care for patient properly
The clients were great. I've learned to work with Alzheimer's and demented clients. My co-workers were all team players. The hardest part was seeing their family members in disbelief of the clients mental illness. The most enjoyable part was the satisfaction I got for caring for someone who couldn't do for themselves.

A daily routine at work
Care Manager (Current Employee), Woodland Hills, CAFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: being able to interact with the residents and making them laugh
Cons: too little pay for a great demand of one worker in an 8 hour period
My duties are giving quality time to each of the resident's I look after, and help them in anything that they might need help doing. That would include showers, feeding, changing diapers, reminiscing over their family and their careers in their past. As well as serving in the dining room, washing the dining room materials, and doing residents laundry. – more... I learned on to manage time, being able to work in a fast paced work area, and just knowing how much of a difference I can make on someone's life – less

Daily working procedures
Maintenance Director (Current Employee), Alexandria, VAJanuary 13, 2014
Pros: making the residents happy and comfortable
Cons: lack of acknowledge in hard work
I begin my day with checking the maintenance request log and prioritize requests. Check the heating and cooling systems to ensure they are working properly and the boiler is running properly. perform any preventive maintenance on items around the building. Communicate with the sales team about move ins or move outs and ensure apartments are up to company – more... standards and in move in ready condition. Communicate with my housekeeping staff that consists of 4 housekeepers about room schedule and resident requests. The most enjoyable part of my job was making the residents happy and comfortable while they are staying with us. – less

Need to be extremely organized in order to function
Business Office Coordinator (Current Employee), Fleetwood, NYJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: the company's standards for hiring are high, the best employees are hired for the job, residents and thier families always receive the best quality of care from every angle
Cons: the hiring turnaround is extremely high, not enough support provided to the front line employees and their managers
The company's bottom line goal is positive and motivating, however not enough focus on "team morale". The Mid-Level Management team can typically feel over worked and under appreciated.

The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you have helped families go through the transitions of life as smoothly as possible.
