Do not work for any Life Care facility. They are for profit. Hopefully that explains it well if you're in healthcare.

The management does not care about you. To them ur a rechargeable robot, they will take advantage of u and burn u out , they offer bonus to stay or pick up extra shift but takes them 2-3 checks to give it to u. Ppl have been there for 2-3 years and still no raise for them. I wouldn't recommend working for them it's not worth the stress and anxiety.

The therapists and management in my building was awesome. Corporate influence was toxic.

The culture was good until upper management began to realize that changes in the Medicare payment system would put their jobs in jealousy....because they have non revenue producing jobs. I was in management in my building....director of rehab. I can say for certain that the last year I was there was intolerable. I had been looking for another job for months before I landed one that I was comfortable with. The pressure to produce revenue to save management level jobs and Mr Preston’s ultimate revenue from the company is insane. And it’s all presented to the public and employees as being “all about patient care.” Well, from someone who has been in building management, I can tell you that that is absolutely garbage! This organization is ALL about the financial bottom line. It’s all about money. My Regional Director of Rehab openly asked me to do things that I thought was unethical In order to increase revenue. My Divisional Director of Rehab supported her....to my dismay. The RRD continually pushed my therapists to the point that she would stand and critique their treatments and documentation even though other therapists that worked with her as an OTR repeatedly told me that her treatments and documentation as a treating therapist in one of our buildings was way sub par. And stilll....the DDR supported her. My therapist were literally fearful for their jobs when any member of therapy corporate management stepped into our building. And this was a HUGE departure from what I experienced from corporate leadership in the 4 years leading up to the last year. If you want a stress free environment with lots of job stability, stay away. They have already decreased PRN wages and.....I guarantee you.....they will be decreasing full time wages and even laying people off when the new payment system hits in October 2019. Don’t trust Life Care. Corporate will pay you off in a moment and then rest well in order to keep their non billable jobs. Because they have been in management for so long that they can’t FUNCTION as therapists and do the things that they demand of the therapists below them. Anytime you have a boss that is not willing to go out in the gym and demonstrate what he or she is demanding of you....that should raise a red flag. If that concerns you, steer clear. And no....I was not fired. I resigned because the corporate atmosphere was so toxic to my therapists and my sense of ethical issues. My building rocked. Strong leadership. I respected the heck out of my ED. Still do. The therapists were awesome. Nursing staff awesome too. But the corporate side was detrimental to say the least. And it trickles down to the therapist level.
