Love the residents
Housekeeper (Former Employee) –  Williamsville, NYDecember 4, 2018
Great place to work if you love the elderly as i do. I learned that not all are capable to help themselves and this company didn't seem to care a whole lot. Management..Ha it's all about money and vacations for them. the hardest part of this job was watching someone slowly deteriorate and lose their battle. The most enjoyable part was hanging in the activities department playing games and making them smile, laugh or even just talking with them.

The most stressful job I've ever had.
Employee (Former Employee) –  Amherst, NYNovember 10, 2018
The management at this place is absolutely horrific. The residents are wonderful and are the only reason why anyone would ever want to stay at this job. They pay you nothing. None of the departments work together for the common good of the nursing home. Overall horrible. Wouldnt want my worst enemy to have my former position.
Pros
amazing residents
Cons
stressful, poor management

Fast Growing & Great Company Culture
Enrollment Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYOctober 26, 2018
Elderwood Health Plan is a rapidly growing company. The management are dedicated but don't micro-manage. I think there is the perfect balance between guidance to excel in your career and freedom for creative initiative development to help contribute to the success of the company. It's a very collaborative environment with continuous support within every department. All the employees of the plan are dedicated to helping each individual that comes to our company for assistance which really facilitates a great environment to work in and adds the personal touch. If you want to work at a company where you have autonomy and are able to develop skills to help better serve the community, this is your place.
Pros

Needs to have better supervisors that are not a kiss up to their upper managements to get what they want or hide their mistakes for them.
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  CheektowagaOctober 21, 2018
Supervisors lie and when you won't do what they want they make you work harder and puts stress on you. They make you feel like you are their best friend but walk out the door and the daggers are being thrown in your back.
Pros
Co workers and going home at end of day
Cons
Being told by supervisor to do certain unethical stuff as lying.

ok
Maplewood Senior Care (Former Employee) –  Cheektowaga, NY 14225September 18, 2018
it was ok for a first job as a teenager. I feel like had they had more incentives and a better pay rate they would have a better turn over. Management was never a big issue. It gives you a high school feel with how they gossip but what place doesnt have that part.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
no benefits low pay

PHYSICAL THERAPIST ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Waverly, NYSeptember 11, 2018

great people, great workplace
Unit Clerk (Former Employee) –  Cheektowaga, NYSeptember 10, 2018
It was a great place to work, very flexible with doctors appointments for children and yourself. I enjoyed working with the residents and coworkers. I was able to learn how to keep organized and how to separate my time to be able to get certain things done. A typical day would start with breakfast for the residents and paperwork, after would be the doctors evaluating different residents as well as having to set up appointments and transportation. Next would be lunch for the residents. After would be lunch for myself and then make sure everything was scanned, filed and uploaded to the online chart for the residents. The hardest part about the job was when a doctor would say that a resident needed to go out to the hospital and you would have to rush to get all the paperwork printed out and filled out for the transport for the resident.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Stressful at times

Not a good experience
Care Manager (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYAugust 24, 2018
The company's health plan is poorly run and understaffed. Management doesn't understand or apply the rules and regulations correctly. They say one thing and do another, there is a total lack of direction. Staff is poorly trained and there are no documented procedures. Everyone in care management is doing something different. Definitely the worst job I've had.
Cons
Poor management, lack of direction

Horrible
Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Brockport, NYJuly 26, 2018
The residents and their families are the only reason to work there. The Administration is not known stays in their offices and could care less about anything except a PR photo.NO unity in staff, and incompetent and arrogant management.Never want to hear feedback or new ideas-or respect the staff.Physical care of residents and how much money they can make from them. It is completely about their image and money.Some admin does not even acknowledge people when they pass them(that is when they are out of their offices) in the hallway or see them on the floors.Favoritism is present towards certain people. Rude and arrogant management who want the world from their staff.
They truly do NOT care about the residents or staff. .

Elderwood removed the American flags that were requested by the residents in the dining areas, because they thought it was not a "home-like" atmosphere?WHAT??????.
Pros
Free parking
Cons
Administration, NO staff support or unity, Short constantly, every employee better have their own back
