LPN (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – June 28, 2018
I learned a lot working at Shalom Park, some of it, what not to do. Quality resident care was emphasized but there was often a disconnect between managements understanding of how respecting and supporting staff effects quality care.
Activities Director (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – July 27, 2018
From the moment that I first walked through the doors to interview at Shalom Park I could see that there was something different about it. Everyone is focused on providing amazing elder centered care. They encourage everyone to be involved in decision making, and hold learning circles to help problem solve challenges. Also, having neighborhoods and consistent assignment allow for staff to get to know elders well and also get to know coworkers well. It truly is an environment of support and compassion for elders and staff

Administration (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – January 23, 2018
This used to be a very family friendly environment but not anymore. It is a miserable place to work with management playing favorites. The new CEO cares only about money and has no real interest in the staff or residents.
Dishwasher/Server P.T. (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – June 3, 2012
This was my first job. I would go to school, go to Lacrosse practice, then ride my bike to work. I got a workers permit from my high school because I was only 15 when I worked there. I learned work ethic, responsibility, and the value of a dollar. My co-workers were amazing and very nice to me. The hardest part was probably being in a Jewish atmosphere as a Christian. The most enjoyable part was learning to become the man I am today.
decent pay, taught me responsibility, and what it takes to have a job.
