CNA (Former Employee) – Liverpool, NY – February 7, 2019
For a company based on caring for people the teamwork within the company to make this happen was poor. A few good people in the mix but not enough to make it a good place to work. The CNA's are overworked and underpaid just like most senior living facilities.
Dietary Aide/Server (Former Employee) – West Seneca, NY – January 29, 2019
good place to work while still in school as there are both full time and part time positions available. pay is so-so but you would make more money serving in a restaurant rather than as a dietary aide. overall the job culture is nice, you get free food here and there.

Absolutely horrible management they care nothing about their employees. They deny time off and then you lose your pto which In this facility you work hard for. Management thinks they can talk to people in a demeaning way. Management are bullys who sit behind a desk all day gossiping about their workers. They have a ADON that talks about other workers, tells other workers who is being fired, talks about the DON and administrator as well as human resources and assistant administrator this facility is cut throat and if you dont fit within their click they make your job harder and make it known they dont like you. I would never recommend anyone work here. They pick and choose who they want to bend rules for. They pick and choose what policies they want to share with the workers. Management walked around boasting how they received coach bags for Christmas while all the people that keep that facility running received an umbrella. They do not appreciate or respect their workers at all. They are absolutely horrible they have a very high turnover and will continue to have that turnover as long as the management team is there. They dont care about their residents at all. All they care about is how much money they are making to ensure they get their big bonuses on top of their big salaries for sitting behind a desk. Despicable and horrible. The state should be investigating them.

The residents and coworkers were wonderful . Management and corporate is another story. The only thing that matters to them is money . The quality of life you gave the residents was unimportant . They are growing quickly without improving or remodeling current facilities . Only focus is getting more facilities and making sure they are full . Once they are in nobody cares about how they are treated . I would never put a loved one in any of their poorly run facilities . Hard to be a loyal employee when you are lied to and backstabbed by your administrator and her higher up in corporate . They take their miserable lives out on their staff .

I like working at Elderwood because it is a friendly and fun place to work. The staff work well each other most of the time and they have fun activities thruout the year that the staff and the residents engage in. If it hadn't been for my back issues and asthma issues flaring up due to their cleaning products I would probably not have left there.
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.

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.

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
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.
