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

Pros

I have nothing good to say about this company.

Cons

No follow up with resident care issues. Nursing staff is abusive to residents. Poor food quality. Filthy dirty and poorly maintained facilities.

Advice to Management

I have NEVER had more complaints from concerned residents and their children in any other job I have worked. I would not put my dog in a place managed by these people.

Although Senior Lifestyles claims to be a "family owned business" they do not own these properties. They are only a management company catering to the "bottom line of investors interests", not to the care of the people that live in one of their facilities.

The management staff overall is completely unresponsive to any concerns in relation to the safety and/or quality of service provided to its residents in the supposedly upscale Assisted Living provider. If you voice concerns you are labeled as a complainer and fired.

Word of advice always research any facility with the Agency for Healthcare Administration in your state. If they have any complaints within the last year go somewhere else that has a clean record.

Also, meet PRIVATELY with the folks that live in the facility and their children. An unscheduled drop by visit is usually the best way to check out a community. Insist upon meeting with multiple families that you select without being escorted by the sales person to get a fair sampling.

Lastly have a meal in the dining room multiple times, insist upon looking at the kitchen and, all corners of the facility off of the beaten "tour path". Be prepared to be shocked.

Always error on the side of caution when picking a facility. A poor choice can cost you at least thousands of dollars, and in a worst case your life or that of a loved one.

    Cons

    Very low pay,hard to find staff to cover if your sick,they want the beds filled and the money but the care is much to be desired. Poor communication. Very combative patients. Super high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Pay more would have less turnover...maybe ...listen to staff

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

    Pros

    The company does promote from within. The majority of the employees from highest to lowest are decent hard working motivated individuals.

    Cons

    The company does not pay a living wage to the non corporate positions including; housekeeper, janitor, administrative assitants, maintenace coordinator and property manager. The expectations are tremendous for the pay.
    Changes are made abritrarily and often to please one sector of the company without regard for the impact on the other sectors.
    The changes vary from anywher from when property managers are allowed to take vacation time to, how bonuses are calculated with no prior notice and effective immediately.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that each employee needs to earn a living wage.
    Decisions made at the corporate level should not be made by the three best friends in organization; there needs to be some checks and balances among the ranks.
    The marketing strategy employed is not effective- get one billboard and fill our buildings!
    Stop giving all the vendor contracts to friends and family allow real competition thereby reducing repair costs and allowing managers to meet their NOI.
    Provide adequate training to new hires.
