I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

I love working with the elderly , dementia is a disease that make the elderly forget, yet when I talk to them, a lot of things they say or the retorts be so comical.

Cons

Lifting...ALONE and the resident can't or their deadweight.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be kind to the staff, like you say that you're kind to the resident.

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The memory care unit at my community was great. The organization has some great insight and ideas for assisting those with dementia. The residents were great!

    Cons

    My specific community had a great deal of management inappropriateness. It seemed like a wonderful place to work, until you were there long enough to realize the truth behind the facade. The care managers all worked great together, unit a position for Memory Care Director opened and one of the leads was competing for the position. A lot of ruthlessness, betrayal and inappropriate behavior going on between that lead care manager and a member of upper management. It was unfortunate, because I would have loved to stay and grow with the company long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check into each community for problems with management and actually follow up. You have a great organization that should not be tainted by poor leadership. Give employees an actual safe way of reporting certain behavior. Treat your employees well and they will stick with you. I know care jobs are a dime a dozen, but that shouldn't mean people who are good at their jobs and really care about people should be viewed as replaceable...and therefore mistreated and ignored.
