    Pros

    Seeing people with memory deficits enjoying life in a secure setting with complete freedom to outdoor and indoor activities wether their choice is to be part of the cooking class, art class or exercise class, or enjoy music or just sitting outside in the courtyard enjoying the beautiful day with a glass of FRE champagne! Surrounded by dogs, cats, birds, children and other things they may have enjoyed throughout their lives and feeling safe and loved in whatever they choose is the very best part of Silverado memory care communities, as a longtime nurse this is a dream community to me! I am so Thankful I have been given the opportunity to be part of such an amazing vision!!

    Cons

    Nothing that can't be managed! I'm not sure why it is required to have 20 words here, if there are no real cons from my point of view!

    Pros

    If you love your residents, it will be why you stay.

    Cons

    Cnas are like a revolving door. Management doesn't even know the residents, and most don't take the time to know, or care about you either.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your residents.. get to know your employees.. actually leave your office, and show you care. Not just when state is in the building, or you're having a tour.. be genuine.

    I worked at Silverado (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked 3 years at Silverado as office employee. In general, it was a good place to work. Lunch, end of year, or appreciation parties were held for all employees ( office and field) once or twice a year. Friendly people from various cultures and ethnic backgrounds.

    Cons

    No clear path for career growth especially for the office employees. Silverado wants more field employees (RN, LVN, CHHA, Social Worker) than office employees. Field employees must drive to patients' locations. Some people in charge, especially in the headquarters, were adamant about accepting employees' suggestions and innovative work.

    Advice to Management

    Silverado Senior Living is a big business with locations in several states. Therefore, Management at local offices as well as headquarters in Irvine should not only get to know more about their employees' abilities and career plan but also establish plenty of diverse growth and advancement opportunities rather than limiting them to very few employees particularly those who hint that they are considering leaving Silverado because of lack of professional growth path.

    Senior officials in headquarters should encourage the practice of reaching out directly to employees for potential upward and lateral mobility at Silverado.
    The officials should also provide job rotation at various levels, departments and locations to help employees get more engaged and learn more about Silverado's business needs.
