    I have been working at Atria Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Atria Residents are amazing! So many of them have unique life experience to share- entertainers, military, artists, corporate leaders, women who were pioneers in their industries!

    The company is growing so the opportunities are limitless.

    Cons

    Front line employees turn over a lot so it can be challenging to get momentum.

    Working with older adults can tug at your heartstrings- it’s hard not to fall in love with them but losing them as part of the natural circle of life can be hard.

    Advice to Management

    Develop leadership training opportunities so those who want to gain skills to help them as they advance are better positioned for advancement.

    Pros

    Free meal
    The delightful residents and family

    Cons

    Not enough nurses to do job properly
    Used med techs which left one nurse for 60 residents. Criteria for their resident admission changed. Excepting critical illness patients and hospice patients making it impossible for one nurse To care for the residents needs. Residents were not being reevaluated for their needs and there was very little help if any from management.

    Advice to Management

    Set up more appropriate protocol for reevaluating residents for their needs. For the type of residence currently being excepted there should be three nurses in the facility or two nurses and one med tech. For what the residents are paying monthly they Are entitled to a much better and safer care than they are receiving.
