I have worked at the Brockport home before Elderwood bought it. I loved the close knit family feel among staff and managment, but now it is cold, punitive, awful benefits that leave you paying hundreds of dollars in bills if you go to a Dr. . In total I have worked here for seven years, before and after being bought and the new hires, even without experience, make more then i do. I was told pretty much to take it or leave. I need this job but the job I loved is now the job I hate.

The staff is stressed, they expect you to preform miracles with few people and new people always being trained to replace the smart ones who got out, so if that continues I do not see how it can survive.
