I have been working at Carillon Assisted Living part-time (Less than a year)
I enjoy working with the elderly. Just making someone laugh makes my day. The opportunity to make a difference.
It is sad to see people whose families do not visit. I tears my heart out to see people who want to do for themselves , but can't . They want their dignity in the worse way.
Advice to Management
This a hard question to answer. I would say more igroup interaction. Maybe more events to hopefully get more family participation.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Carillon Assisted Living.
I had to interview with three separate people. 2 in person and one on the phone. All the individuals I talked with were very personable and encouraging. Had to take a personality inventory on line. I was offered the position but in the end the salary was too low for it to make sense. No attempt to work with me on salary or benefits. I think I would have enjoyed the job but without some effort from the higher ups to have some wiggle room in salary to pay someone more qualified would've been demotivating over time.
Reasons for Declining
Not enough pay.
