Pros

The residents are sweet and very appreciative of everything done for them.

Cons

The employees work in fear of losing their jobs. Micro-management, as stated by others, is a good description. Not uncommon to hear false statements to potential residents and employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look more closely at what REALLY is being done for (and said to) your residents. What's on paper is not always the truth. Nepotism exists. Possibly be more realistic with the time studies - taking care of non-ambulatory, incontinent overweight residents NEEDS more than one employee on duty to safely complete the care needed. The Hoyer lift doesn't even work. Most employees dont know what it is, let alone how to use it. I would not have even looked at this site if I had been treated with the same respect and integrity I had shown to the management as I transitioned out. That was NOT the case!

    Pros

    The Residents ~~they are the reason for your job there, They need the encouragement because they see constant high staff turnover. Line staff need encouragement. Some ~~~ VERY FEW, Lead Medication Aids and Dietary Managers at a few of the Houses have stayed and need recognized, because they are the backbone of these few select houses.

    Cons

    Corporate micromanages the Regional teams, then Regionals are expected to micromanage the house teams (Residence Director,Wellness Dir and Sales).
    There is such a constant cycle of staff turnover at all staff levels, that the training of new Staff (Resident directors, Wellness Directors, Sales Managers, Personal service attendants) Is never completed, then in turn, frustration sets in and they give up and resign or just quit. It ends up that there are staff who have been just hired, and who are supposed to be getting trained end up having to train other new staff members before their training is complete and the cycle just continues. No one knows anything !
    Resident Directors are expected to go out and make 10 sales calls a week, 5 in home visits ( visiting a potential move in ) per week. They are on 3-4 conference calls per week( these calls consist of belittling and reprimanding), besides all the other responsibilities they are expected to complete within the week/month. Wellness Directors are to complete 2 sales calls per week, Depending on the occupancy of the house, they are in constant threat of their hours being cut down from full time to part time.They have no idea of their budget for supplies.
    The benefits of ALC houses for the Residents compared to other Assisted Living Companies is very bland. No transportation ( at least in East Texas area ), Activities are poor because the company does not give a budget plan for the Meaningful Pursuits Director (activity manager) and this person may only be allowed to work between 10-20 hours per week depending on the Resident occupancy.
     There is so much more to say, but a book would be written before I would be able to finish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up to Laurie Bebo and her puppets and let the Board of Directors know how things really are, surely at least one of the directors would have a heart and want to see the truth at the house levels. The best thing I can see is the company sell off to others companies who care about people, and Laurie go get a job that does not involve the care of people.

    Pros

    The residents and staff were the best!

    Cons

    No positive support from the regional team, micromanaging by upper management, very understaffed, every employee was overworked especially the salaried employees. The only thing the company cares about is census. They do not care about the residents or staff at all. The almost daily conference calls are a waste of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ALC needs to put the residents and employees first, so the census can fall into place.
