CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Liverpool, NY – November 7, 2018
I love what I do but doesn't mean I like who I work for. For 24 years I believe I deserve more but I still respect them and will do my job to my fullest because I take pride in it and I love helping people
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Williamsville, NY – December 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.
Employee (Former Employee) – Amherst, NY – November 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.
Enrollment Coordinator (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – October 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.

Anonymous (Current Employee) – Cheektowaga – October 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.
Co workers and going home at end of day
Being told by supervisor to do certain unethical stuff as lying.

Maplewood Senior Care (Former Employee) – Cheektowaga, NY 14225 – September 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.
Unit Clerk (Former Employee) – Cheektowaga, NY – September 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.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – North Creek, NY – September 4, 2018
poor communication between higher ups and supervisors, lazy coworkers always finding a way outta work and leaving messes behind for others to attend to. poor attitudes and miserable people daily who make the job harder than it has to be. overall a downer and a drag with no advancements in pay... at all. barely minimum wages. wouldn't work here ever again or reccomend it to my worst enemy.
Therapy (Former Employee) – Brockport – September 3, 2018
I worked at Elderwood for a short period of time. I never felt comfortable working with the staff and did not feel welcomed. The staff was very unprofessional and acted out of their own best interest rather than the employees.
Care Manager (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – August 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.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Brockport, NY – July 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??????.
Administration, NO staff support or unity, Short constantly, every employee better have their own back
