The Absolute Best Work Place...Seriously!
I worked as a PT in the Riderwood campus, and I can honestly say that this was the best Job I've had so far in my career. The staff is very supportive and are like family. Everyone works together as a team to do what is best for the residents. The residents are treated with the UTMOST respect, and they are very involved in their own care. I even consider living here in retirement if I can afford it. The facility is very clean. The Rehab manager is very respectful of therapist's clinical decisions. Nursing is very cooperative with therapy and they work very well together. The pay was VERY generous and we got raises every year after the annual review. Management actively encourages a good work-life balance and this helps the morale of the team, reduces burnout. I never had to take work home because we leave the laptops at work, which was really important for me because I could switch off work and enjoy the rest of my day with family. Being a continuing care facility, when the caseload is low in one of the departments, you can flex to the other departments to make up your caseload. This may throw you off your process sometimes, but you gain valuable experience and keep your skills refreshed
Work-life balance, Generous pay, job satisfaction, clean facility, staff and residents
