    I have been working at Silverado full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros that I can think of.

    Cons

    High staff turn over. Management fires an average of 10-15 care staff a year. Its all for profit and severely understaffed, not enough caregivers for Dementia residents that requires more care and attention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live by your motto.

    Residents give you lots of love, but management treats you very poorly.

    I worked at Silverado full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The residents are the reason you work there. The smiles on their faces and the love they reciprocate towards you is the best feeling! It doesn't feel like work when you're spending time with people you love.

    Cons

    The senior administrator is cold, unfriendly, unapproachable, intimidating, and never smiles. Not the qualities you would expect from someone in such a position. The management really does not demonstrate appreciation for the hard work you do. That appreciation comes from the residents and their families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise the management to concentrate on their community, instead of sending half the management teams to help out other Silverados.
