    I worked at Elderwood full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fellow staff members were great to work with and very competent. While Elderwood was owned by Bob Chur, excellent facility and residents were well taken care of.

    Cons

    New management from corporate level to department heads are money focused and not resident focused. Management at this facility in particular, does not care about any of the employees, residents or their families. The management of the therapy department have created a toxic environment. Do not work here.

    Advice to Management

    Replace all management.

    I have been working at Elderwood full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Clean facility with great potential. Caring staff that seems to sincerely want to be there. PT is excellent. Good education and on boarding.

    Cons

    Micromanaged. 1 strike your out attitude. Constant turnover of all leadership positions. Hire leaders with no long term experience. Most positions have people with little experience and poor people skills.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to retain quality. Staff, residents and family lose respect and don’t build trusting relationships when you continually use a revolving door for management.
