    Pros

    There are no pros from my point of veiw

    Cons

    with my coverage medication is supposed to be priced at $10,$50 or $100, and if you use their online delivery its supposed to be 2 1/2 times this price for a 90 day supply, prescriptions do not count toward the deductible. the price for my 90 days $1163, because I haven't met my deductible

    I worked at Elderwood full-time

    Pros

    The residents, and some wonderful front line staff and members of the facility management team.

    Cons

    The founding owner sold the company. New owners have no business running nursing homes. They have no compassion for the residents or caring, hard working staff. They have caused all the Elderwoods to lose wonderful staff on all levels and have hurt the residents by causing many to move elsewhere due to their pricing.

    Advice to Management

    Sell. You don't belong owning a business that deals with people on any level much less alone the elderly!

    Free Parking /The residents are wonderful but I feel badly for them

    Cons

    Administration, NO staff support or unity, Short constantly, every employee better have their own back

    Advice to Management

    Caregiver (Former Employee) – Brockport, NY – July 26, 2018
    The residents and their families are the only reason to work there. The Administration is not known stays in their offices and could care less about anything except a PR photo.NO unity in staff, and incompetent and arrogant management.Never want to hear feedback or new ideas-or respect the staff.Physical care of residents and how much money they can make from them. It is completely about their image and money.Some admin does not even acknowledge people when they pass them(that is when they are out of their offices) in the hallway or see them on the floors.Favoritism is present towards certain people. Rude and arrogant management who want the world from their staff.
    They truly do NOT care about the residents or staff. .

    Elderwood removed the American flags that were requested by the residents in the dining areas, because they thought it was not a "home-like" atmosphere?WHAT??????.
    Pros
    Free parking
    Cons
