Medication Aide (Current Employee) – Virginia – September 25, 2018
I have been working at several different facilities and I understand there is drama anywhere you go but I would honestly have to say Enlivant wins. You don't have to like who you work with but while you're at work at least keep it professional and work together. You're supposed to be able to go to management when you feel a resident is being treated unfairly but not at Enlivant. If you tell management anything they turn right around and tell the person that person who said something and when it was said just so they won't look bad. How do you expect your employees to get along and work together when you are turning them against one another. When people are hired promises are being made and when those promises are not kept people walk right out the door. Employees are mistreating the residents and nothing is being done about it because they are desperate of help. Residents pay ridiculous amounts of money to stay here and do not get the proper care. I have been working for an Enlivant facility for a little over a year now and it is ridiculous how many uncalled for deaths there have been since I have been here. The only reason I stay here is because of my residents and my family.

It a very stressful place... alot of drama... bosses always wait for the last minute to find someone to work for the shift that's working that day.. or work by your self for 40 residents for one person
RCP - Resident Care Partner (Current Employee) – Bloomington, IN – October 5, 2018
I really enjoyed working here, the time that I did. Its very overwhelming at first, because its such a large building. I think I was there for a month before I really got the hang of things. However I was also only just getting the hang of it when they started leaving me to work the floor by myself with around 60 residents. Granted it is Assisted Living, but it still gets very busy. The coworkers and residents are very friendly, the Executive Director is amazing. During meals is probably the worst, it's complete chaos. You'll have at least 5 residents yelling at you for coffee and other items they want.
LPN Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – Shelbyville, IN – September 23, 2018
Fast paced job for the charge nurse, but we are given good management support, incentives, and treated like we matter. I left nursing for a year, then returned to my job with Enlivant because of the environment and excellent pay.
Leadership Team Member (Current Employee) – Northwest IN – September 21, 2018
There is way to much to cover in a short review. No consistency in the way things are done. Constant turnover because of low pay and regular turnover with upper management as well. The company preaches integrity and CORE values when there is absolutely none. This company cares about the bottom line NOT the care and well being of the residents. If the employee hours are over or not in line with budget nursing/care staff are first to get cut which makes no sense when you are supposed to be a resident centered business.
Way to many to mention but the biggest is lack of care/poor care for residents.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Uniontown, PA – September 14, 2018
The director is an arrogant, two faced, malicious human being. She does not actually care for anyone. She’s conniving & deceiving. Everyone in management is rude & dishonest. I wouldnt recommend this place caring for my animals let alone my human family members. There are bugs, there is a dog that just urinates on the floor & disinfectant is not sprayed nor is it cleaned. Such a low wage for all that you do. You’re expected to do everything, but you can get paid more sitting on your butt or working at Walmart. You would think taking care of elderly would be higher paying. PATHETIC.
home like work environment centered on quality care
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 26, 2018
assisted living facility focused on quality patient care. a typical day consists of assisting residents with ADL's and activities. Each home is limited to 30-40 beds which allows genuine relationships to form between the residents and the aides.
Resident Care Provider (Former Employee) – West Columbia, SC – August 21, 2018
Overall the best thing about the job was the residents. I came in as a part time employee and was working full time hours but couldnt get the full time benefits. Then we as caregivers always worked short and we had to wash dishes also. When working for this company you must literally be a jack of all trades and towarda the end of my employment they were bringing in all kinds of residents as in total care residents. And managment definetly shows favortism and agency was always having to come in due to working short about every day.
If you care about your loved one dont put them here
Didn' work there (Former Employee) – Tucson,AZ – August 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.
Chef (Former Employee) – Amarillo Texas – August 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.
N/A (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 9, 2018
Management is Terrible, Patient care people are LAZY , It a fight to get anything done if you want it done they say, do it yourself. The is so NASTY , she complaints about everything. She does not even like herself, so how could she like anyone else.
Good teams at times, does not bother dedicated workers
Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) – Joliet, IL – August 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.
Executive Director (Current Employee) – North Washington – August 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
Hard working care staff
Poor operational leadership, pricing structure. Non industry stock holders that simply dont care
Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 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.
