    Pros

    More relaxed environment. Less patient to Aide ratio. Residence receive better care than in a nursing home.

    Cons

    1. Low Wages, 10 cent raises every year. 2. No paid holidays. You take the money from your earned PTO. 3. Aides are also Chiefs, you cook every meal. Grocery shop. Housekeeping, you are the housekeeper. Laundry, you do all of the residents laundry. You are the most important employee. You keep the house running smoothly but you receive little compensation, tiny Christmas Bonus

    Advice to Management

    Seriously examine the aides role in your company. What would you be without us? Want better employees? Then show them that they matter and take care of them!

    "Too much for too little pay"

    Pros

    I love the concept, it's more like a home rather than your typical depressing nursing home. The aides seem to really care about the residents, that really seems to be the only thing keeping them there.

    Cons

    Poor training, aides are responsible for the cleaning, cooking, dishes, laundry, and patient care. They mandate you to stay if your relief does not come in (happens a lot). 8 hours shifts turn into 16 hrs. You can not plan a life outside of work when you have no idea IF you are going to work 8 or 16. It's also unsafe as employees are exhausted and tired.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the gift card game and pay a good competitive wage to everyone (you're asking a lot of the aides (cook, maid, and caregiver!). Switch to 12 hr shifts with 3 aides 7am to 7pm and 2 aides 7pm to 7am. This ensures coverage if one calls off and allows aides to actually take breaks/lunches.

    Pros

    The professional staff really care about the residents and the quality of their work. I would recommend for seniors looking for a clean, safe place to live.

    Cons

    Management is a mixed bag. Some are good and some are not so good at managing people.

    Advice to Management

    Marketing jobs and clinical jobs are not the same thing.

    Pros

    The elders (residents) have a lot more freedom than at a regular nursing home.

    Cons

    Extremely understaffed. Nurses need to keep going back and forth between houses. Two or three admissions altogether are frequent. No holiday pay.

    Advice to Management

    The turn over would probably be less if the wages were more competitive and if there were more nurses scheduled per shift. It is not safe to stay at a minimum. Residents pay a huge amount of money every month and deserve better care.

    I worked at Otterbein Senior Lifestyle Choices part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the job responsibilities. There was a set flow so I always knew what was to be expected once I got within the swing of things. There was 2 weeks of training before I was left alone, which was nice, and they even wanted to train me longer but I declined.

    Cons

    There were always schedules that were not filled so you had to stay after your shift ended. Sometimes they wanted me to work doubles when I had school the next day, but would always find someone to cover me so I could go home eventually.

    Advice to Management

    Scheduling could be better- better communication.
