I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living part-time for more than a year

Pros

Friendly staff, nice facility, team approach to caring for the elderly

Cons

I work for both Emeritus and Brookdale and I find my work experience at Emeritus far superior to Brookdale. The Emeritus facility fosters team work and caring; the Brookdale situation is all about intimidation, threats and the profit margin. Emeritus respects the professional's opinions and recommendations; Brookdale does not. Right now, I really dread having Brookdale take over Emeritus operations. Could be my work situations are isolated instances; and, it depends on the bonus structure and who is more aggressive about obtaining it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do away with the bonuses because it breeds dishonesty and contempt in an industry geared to caring for the elderly.

    Provide assisted living for elderly with dignity but the financial bottom line becomes more important at times.

    I worked at Emeritus Senior Living full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working to provide the elderly a proper living community when they are not able to live alone is very rewarding. Serving interesting individuals from all walks of life as well as managing a dedicated group of employees.

    Cons

    Paperwork and staff meetings keep from serving ones who need your assistance. Constant reminders to push for meeting or exceeding resident quotas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never loose sight of the employees who work hard to maintain an assisted living facility the way it should be. Impeccable.
