    Pros

    It is a very rewarding career to aid senior citizens experiencing confusion from dementia and give them hope, laughter, kindness, music and singing, brain stimulation with brain teasers, social activities, fitness, relaxation through arts & crafts and painting , gardening and self care through nutrition, skin care and grooming classes. When you see sparks of memories through music it really gives you a sense of gratification that beyond words.

    Cons

    If you love the work, it will be hard to go home on time. So sometimes your days are longer that others.

    Advice to Management

    Work together as a team. Supervisors need patience and to be good listeners to their managers and care staff. Supervisors need to verbalize appreciation more often to each team member.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living (Ormond Beach, FL).

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by email by a Brookdale Senior Living Recruiter. She set up my first interview with her via phone. The next interview was with the Divisional Clinical Director and that along with the first interview went well. I then met with one of the Executive Directors and yet another. My final Executive Director Interview was wonderful and stressful at the same time. He spent so much time with me and was quite thorough and by the end of my interview I knew that we would be part of a great team together. I was offered the postion later that week. I am impressed with this company and I know that it is the perfect fit for both of us. I felt a great deal of support from the Divisional Clinical Director.
