    Pros

    We have an AMAZING core staff and an AMAZING leadership team. We are always working together as a team! When you ask a team member to do a task they all go above and beyond what is asked of them from care staff to culinary to housekeeping to maintenance to front desk! I feel we have a #DreamTeam at Meridian of West Hills!!

    Cons

    We can use a new Salon for our residents to make them handsome and pretty!!

    Advice to Management

    Not much we and they are so caring and compassionate and really cater to the needs of the families and residents!

    Pros

    Better MC Program than Silverado or Atria's complicated and ultra academic programs that make no sense to caregivers. Great training and support. Family friendly company and the leaders call you and just chat!

    Cons

    No 401K match yet and like everyone else, aides will leave for 25 cents more up the street.

    Advice to Management

    Send me to your communities in China! Meridian is doing amazing things internationally!

    Pros

    I have worked as a Executive Director for Meridian Senior for over two years and couldn't be happier. The Regional support is amazing and I couldn't ask for a better team. We have everything we need to make sure our Residents and employees are taking care of and when situations come up they're addressed in a timely manner.

    Cons

    None come to mind at this time.

    Pros

    The residents and their family members. It is great that such a nice place exists t meet the needs of the elderly population in a small town. Brookstone is primarily Aledo residents and Aledo staff. The community of Aledo has a desire top take care of their own.
    It is fulfilling to work somewhere that each staff member knows each resident, personally.

    Cons

    When one of our beloved residents moves out of our community. The bonds created are quite strong.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the hard work. Keep Brookstone employed by Aledo residents, taking care of Aledo residents.

    Pros

    I have worked with the company now 5 months, and it feels like HOME! I have an AMAZING community with WONDERFUL residents and family that I look forward to seeing everyday! I can't imagine doing anything else in my life <3

    Cons

    Obviously nothing is perfect, but I wish I could receive more incentives for staff retention! I think they are moving forward with this, but it's honestly the hardest part of our jobs is finding, training, and retaining great staff!

    Advice to Management

    I would do a better 401K plan that matches something to our retirement that we put in. Also, better higher occupancy bonuses

    Pros

    Authentic & extraordinary culture that's truly living & breathing in all layers at the community leadership level & executive leadership level. Signature programs & approach to care/service that draws out the best in both residents & team members. Leaders who follow thru for their teams, are open to awesome ideas for improving culture, & actively seek to promote from within.

    Like people, all companies have some imperfections & flat sides. Nothing noteworthy.

    Advice to Management

    In the wake of our growth both stateside & internationally lets stay steadfast in our WOW! culture. Ita amazing how it improves the lives of our staff, residents, & their loved ones. It's what got us on top & it's what'll keep us there.
