    Biing a nurse in assisted living

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsResidents get to live as independently as possible. Most communities offer a range of activities. Meals are usually given a lot of thought as this is a high point in Residents lives.
    Staff now has to be CPR certified.

    ConsMost assisted living communities do not have enough staff to care for the amount of Residents that are in the building. Remember assisted living is a non-medical service, unless staff is willing to purchase on their own first aid supplies such as bandaids,Resident have to supply themselves. Assisted communities are expensive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your general managers in check. Make sure GM know whats going on with their staff.Stop telling new staff how the GM wants everyone fired does not make a good impression.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Community Relations

    Community Relations Director (Former Employee)

    ProsGives awards to employees, if they go the ertra mile. Donates to the USO and other Events.
    Has a good Activitys program for Residents.Good Training for new hires. Has good HR people.

    ConsDoes not work fast to get improvements in building takes to long. Does not give Vacation time compared to other companys. Does not inform residents at a timely manner for any changes in Policy. Regionals do not check Managers time and Policy changes in a timely manner. Short staffed, overworked staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet enough staff to cover so every one can get better service. Keep staff more informed on any changes. Rents go up to much for buidling that need repair.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
