If you care about your loved one dont put them here
Didn' work there (Former Employee) –  Tucson,AZAugust 13, 2018
This is by far the worst place you could put your loved ones. Management is by far the worst I have ever seen! Moved my aunt into memory care when she didn't need to be all because she needed help eating, I was there visiting one day when I heard the executive director refer to her and some other residents as "feeders" because they had to help them eat! They older lady at the front desk does way to much gossiping, and there is one resident who calls herself a "bit#h" that runs the place if she doesn't like your family management will move them or ask them to leave in order to make her happy.
Pros
Don't put your loved one here
Cons
Nothing

Horrible company and management!
Chef (Former Employee) –  Amarillo TexasAugust 10, 2018
Look out for this company! It's awful. They don't respect their employees and could careless if you work hard and actually help improve the place. Management just sits in the office and collects credit for work they don't do.
Pros

Good teams at times, does not bother dedicated workers
Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) –  Joliet, ILAugust 9, 2018
Very busy and stressful but memory care is all that in a nut shell. Treat your staff with respect and you will be able to have a fantastic team to work with. Management changes often just go with the flow, your focus is on the residents and that should be priority. As long as you go your job there will be nothing to worry about and job security.
Pros
grow to be family
Cons
8 hour shifts

Difficult days
Executive Director (Current Employee) –  North WashingtonAugust 7, 2018
This company has a potential to be one of the best. However, they lack in figuring it all out. Instead, they spend so much time trying to blame people for not doing a job that top management should be doing. There is no communication and there is no support to community leaders. They place people in regional positions that have no qualifications and no clue how to manage, coach, and train community leadership. The company reputation is tainted and will never recover. READ THE REVIEWS BEFORE APPLYING. They are true! 2.3 rating speaks volumes
Pros
Hard working care staff
Cons
Poor operational leadership, pricing structure. Non industry stock holders that simply dont care

Smoke and mirrors
Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 4, 2018
Since the investor came aboard this whole company has gone sideways.
All about revenue to get investor with stock holders to buy the company. They are cash strapped and staff continues to be cut.
I.T. Infrastructure is very weak. No money for media ads. Not allowed any type of social marketing.
They are making stuff up on the fly. Recent roll out of memory care was quite humorous. They have people in charge of managing the training who are clueless about dementia.
No theme attached as they did not want to pay for the branding and marketing to promote.
Their idea of sales is to go in and meet 5 straight days with referral sources and discuss CHIEF!! I guess they feel compassion is a sellable concept vs a given.
They manage by metrics yet refuse to acknowledge the number of inquiries who cannot afford.
You had 6 leads last week and only 1 move in!! The other 5 were low income and could not afford. Doesn't matter you have dropped below the standard so you are now on performance plan of corrections.
Pros
On paper they have great concepts
Cons
95% never get implemented

Former nurse (Former Employee) –  DelawareJuly 25, 2018
Management says 'if you need help just ask', when you ask for help, they all say' I can't, I have to leave. I font h ave time to help, blah blah blah. 3 generals with 1 lowly private, and the one lowly private to do all the work. Trying to call Doctors get orders pass meds admit residents, and still no help.

Overstretched
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) –  OhioJuly 23, 2018
The team is great but there is only so much one person can do. Due to corporate, only one aide and nurse are allowed for each shift. On top of resident care the aide and nurse are responsible for washing, drying, and putting away/hanging laundry, washing and putting away dishes, carrying out meals, bussing tables, resetting table linens and silverware, sweeping and mopping the dining room and kitchen, cleaning bathrooms, answering the phone, etc.
The pay is low for the area. There are also residents who are being pulled from nursing homes that should not be in assisted living. Corporate is worried about numbers and not proper staffing to care for the residents.
Pros
Good team members
Cons
Low pay, improperly staffed, no room for advancement

Medication Technition/caregiver (Former Employee) –  Prineville, ORJuly 13, 2018
Enlivant is an amazing company all around. This field is not for everyone. Enlivant give you every tool you need to be successful giving such compassionate care. Couldn't have asked for a better company to find where my heart is. However, make sure you use all tools given appropriately. Took months of "complaining" To only have another investigation opened. Amazing company. Amazing resources, awesome eye opener.

Don’t Fall The Good Stuff
RCP (Former Employee) –  Bryan, TXJuly 5, 2018
The reason why I gave the star that I gave was because it’s not what they say it is . You’re working in places that you don’t need to be working. The company doesn’t care about you. I promise that . Get hurt & see if they come to your rescue..

RCP (Current Employee) –  Carroll, OHJune 11, 2018
This place has horrible management and they don’t pay enough for what your expected to. I requested 2 days off a week for school and the executive director got mouthy and talked behind my back. They don’t want you to better yourself or advance in your career. This place is one of the worst that I’ve worked in.

Detached from corporate office
Director/Administrator (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORMay 25, 2018
Very involved management role. Expectations for filling the facility and maintaining level of care changes was the philosophy for this for profit agency. It was difficult to maintain a balance between work goals and personal time with family due to the company expectations. Staff and management -high turn over rate.
Pros
Owner of the company had a geriatric background.
Cons
Bonus gifts earned were expected to be kept at the facility rather than a personal reward.

Life Enrichment Coordinator (Former Employee) –  texasMay 24, 2018
Expect 5 activities a day for residents but expect you to only work 30-35 hours-impossible. Manager couldn't ever look you in the eye. Residents pay way too much for the services they are proivided and care given
Pros
the residents
Cons
pay, hours, expect too much for low pay

terrible!
Kitchen Assistant/Housekeeper (Former Employee) –  Johnstown, PAMay 23, 2018
The work itself as kitchen help/housekeeper was simple. They were nice during the hiring process, but once I got in the door it was all downhill. Management was terrible, she always had snarky remarks and was in her office every morning because everything was being nit picked..from your tone of voice, to the way you walk, to the way you poured your OWN coffee, etc. Very disrespectful staff. It was like being back in high school with the girls I worked with. The residents were very sweet, but treated so poorly by the resident aides. I lasted 3 days & had to get out. Would NOT recommend.
Pros
easy work
Cons
horrible managment and staff

Is it REALLY about the residents? Are you living your mission and values on a daily basis??
Management (Former Employee) –  WisconsinMay 21, 2018
There is a definite theme to the ratings of this company. Each employee that has come through the doors have been promised many things. Unfortunately, none of these promises are kept. The staff work diligently in order to bring excellent care to the residents. When your corporate building is in Chicago, right next to a Trump building, you might be spending way too much money on your corporate building and not putting your monies back into the residences. When the residents have to use broken dishes, chairs, and are unsafe related to old items, you may want to look re-look at your mission and values and your management team. It certainly is a business, but the residents MUST COME FIRST. Your boots on the ground need to be taken care of too.
Pros
Residents
Cons
Low Pay, Poor Senior Leadership, Poor Follow Through

Certified Medication Aide (Former Employee) –  Marietta, GAMay 20, 2018
Most of the management team is about there self and will throw you under the bus if they don't like you. You must be in the circle in order to keep your job.
