I have been working at Weston Group
Pros – Set your own schedule, treatments as short or as long as you need, no micromanagement, updated with new electronic medical records for ease of communication.
Cons – Medicare changes decreasing workload some-not a Weston Group issue but since we serve mostly elderly it does affect us.
Advice to Senior Management – Support the good staff with rewards for good performance and high productivity.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Weston Group full-time
Pros – Great people in the field that truly want to do their best.
Cons – Leadership that lacks vision and direction, angry and struggling to survive and taking desperate measures to do so. Full time staff hours are routinely cut to the minimum to meet productivity goals. Pay cuts, and other benefits lost. There does not seem to be a strategic plan to grow and evolve to meet today's market demands, so competitors are swooping in and taking full advantage of this. Very sad.
Advice to Senior Management – Better communication that is meaningful and purposeful. Start planning for the future instead of laboring over the past. You can't fix the past, you can only learn from it and build a stronger future. Otherwise, there won't be a future.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Weston Group full-time for less than a year
Pros – when starting I was told that I need to build a caseload, which managent did assist me in doing. not complaints there . i was told that I would get my hours in which case i have been able to get 32 so far to meet the benefit requirement
Cons – im not happy with the discrepencies in the paperwork. i work at 2 facilities, and one is comp paperwork, the other is hand written and havent rolled over yet. its very confusing to regear and do things differently day by day. there should be more consistency in all buildings. management is supportive but far away. within the 1st work of starting they increased the productivity standard and stated that if productivity wasnt achieved then they would start writing therapists up, which to me is very micromanagerial. theres only 1 comp in the building, for a staff of 4 and thats mini laptop and keyboard is very small. new hires are left to fend for themselves, and learn job functions on their own. therapists have to basically treat, finish all doc, enter time daily by their limit, stay productive or ge written up, complete and correct all monthly billing, finish all verifications and enter on paper, to me thats herrondous for an 8 hr day. they need to SIMPLIFY a therapists job and eliminate red tape with BILLING!!! make a job easy not difficult!
Advice to Senior Management – QUIT mocromanaging and threatening. getting written up is never a solution. thats simply micromanaging coming from someone with a management degree.

Pros – Smaller company which has the capacity to offer competitve wages, and in theory, growth and upward mobility as they seem to fire and hire people / turn over people fairly quickly.
Cons – Weston Group's affiliate Paxxon Healthcare which was recently rolled out in Belmont Independent and Assisted Living facilities nation wide. Paxxon overstaffs buildings with traveling therapists, understaffs permanent managers, and tries to manage from afar without knowing their clients. The company provides few to no resources for therapists (including no computers for internet access, yet daily time cards are expected to be entered in their computer/electronic record keeping. Their documentation systems exist on paper and insurance verification system is archaeic (therapists are required to gather patient info, MD data and NPI info (again without a computer) and fax the requests to the east coast where it can take up to 10 days to hear back regarding patient's insurance. The company does not provide appropriate start up materials or guidance, including a company manual that has some chapters in triplicate and other chapters that are missing... including missing Medicare 700 forms. Again, few therapeutic resources are available for therapists including no access to theraputty, theraband, or hip kits for OT's to use to demonstrate for their patients. Management that is in place resides 3 hours away in another time zone and is done from one conference call to the next. Management also expects insane productivity levels, yet provides no means or resources for building case load, including no business cards, no flyers or handouts, no promotional resources, and limited interaction between corporate Paxxon and corporate Belmont leaves therapists and employees at the local level left floundering to guess how to negotiate the merger.
Advice to Senior Management – Take a class in ethics. Then learn about your clients in each building. Don't think that a coroporate model that someone devised in their back yard in podunk PA is going to fly in reality in southern CA.
