    I worked at Presbyterian Homes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great history and heritage with many talented people in resident support services and healthcare. Many infrastructure improvements being added to modernize operations

    Cons

    Corporate management very aloof and removed from front line and residents. Environment in some departments chaotic and disrespectful. Planning is short term and does not consider available resources and talent. Focus seems to be less interested in healthcare services and more on easy residential offerings so the balance that was perfectly set up for future Healthcare under ACA is now dismantled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back in touch with employees and rebuild trust and respect. CEO is invisible and senior management is very much set apart from employees and line managers. Employees do not feel they are valued and communication is one sided, trust is broken on various levels.

    Pros

    residents are wonderful and very appreciative, it is a clean and attractive place to work, benefits are pretty good

    Cons

    upper management is not open about their plans and direction with middle managers and staff, co-workers just disappear without warning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't go wrong if you prioritize the good of the residents and make sure that your employees are sincerely appreciated for doing a good job.

    I have been working at Presbyterian Homes

    Pros

    Better than average pay, updated facility.

    Cons

    Suggestions for improvement are not usually considered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not always possible for a unit nurse to leave exactly on time. Please be more concerned that continuity of care is consistent, and potential health problems of residents are assessed and addressed, rather than worrying about a few minutes of overtime. Patient care suffers under these circumstances.

    I have been working at Presbyterian Homes

    Pros

    Presbyterian Homes and Services have a wonderful mission and they do an excellent job carrying out their mission and vision. When compared to other LTC/TCU work places, I felt they were highly ethical in their billing, treatment, and expectations for their employees. It is a great place to work as a rehab therapist.

    Cons

    It was hard to have consistent hours, and when therapy was slow, there was not always another place to float to. Expect to have variations in your pay checks depending on caseload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would go a long way for employee satisfaction if more recognition was given for good care...it seems like staff across the board were written up frequently. Nursing staff were over-worked, and when things were not done, they were written up...look into the real reasons why people are being written up...hire more aides!!!! Also, if someone is doing well most of the time and has a slip up here and there, their good work should over-ride the minor things they have missed.

    I have been working at Presbyterian Homes

    Pros

    Presbyterian Homes is a great environment to work in. The vision and mission of this non-profit Senior Living commmunity is honorable and thoughtful. The staff attempts to work as an overall team, from those in Nursing to those in Housekeeping. The benefits are very good. And the residents are generous both with encouragement and monitary bonus' when available.

    Cons

    The work load for those working in "Recreational Therapy" is both physically and mentally taxing. There are many aspects of those conducting activities that require thoughtful preparation, planning and insight into the various mental and physical challenges of each resident. In addition to those considerations, there is also charting that needs to be completed on a timely basis. The overall position is under recognized and under budgeted. The pay scale is entry level but requirements are for those with experience and at least a college degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the normal course of the day, pay equals experience. Recreational Therapy is esential to the whole person. Please encourage those in this field to act and perform in a more professional manner.
