Productive with valuable experience to take care and think about the feelings of people with dementia
Activity and Volunteer Coordinator Co-op, (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONDecember 4, 2014
Pros: continuous learning
Cons: sometimes too emotional
My typical day started with planning activities either in group or one to one to enhance the physical, mental and spiritual well being of seniors.Assisted other staff members aiming common goal that is quality life for seniors. I learned about taking initiative for engaging residents in something that makes them feel productive and also I learned to deal with patients of dementia through training sessions and experience in reminiscence. I found the most challenging part of this job is engaging residents in group activities so, I tried different activities with other co-workers and encourage residents to participate. Most enjoyable part of this job is unforgettable memories by sharing experiences of life with various person.

Health Care Coodinator (Former Employee), Windsor, ONApril 26, 2014
Pros: homelike environment
Cons: at times policy took precedence over people
Very busy, home like environment. Most enjoyed the one on one and small group time with the residents just getting to know them personally and hearing about who they where and what was important to them. Frontline staff where amazingly in touch with the residents needs and went over and above to give the residents the best quality of life they could.

fun work place, coworkers and bosses are friendly
Medication Aide (Current Employee), Westfield, NJJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: rate is pretty good
Cons: expensive healthcare benefits when you have kids
A typical day at work is reading the daily log book to check any updates, new order of the medicine, check the medication administration record for any new order and discontinued meds.
I learned how to manage my time.
My coworkers are helpful and nice
The hardest part of the job is when the staff are short.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when i give the residents the best care and see their smile on their faces.

Great place to work for passionate people!
Life Enrichment Manager (Current Employee), Sacramento, CAJanuary 26, 2015
This is a great place for people seeking a job they can be passionate about. I stress the work passionate a great deal because this job does not pay that well. The company does try to make up for it with parties and gifts, but (as much as this sounds like a Hallmak card) the real pay check comes from the work you do with the residents whom make everyday working there worth it. The culture is strong here and it really is like a second home. No day is ever the same so it keeps you on your toes and in all my years working for Sunrise, I have never had a boring work week, let alone a boring work day.

Horrible
Dietary Aide (Former Employee), Omaha, NEJanuary 25, 2015
Pros: free lunches
Cons: no lunch breaks
Was constantly doing my job and other people's jobs. Management said they would do something about it and they never did. Director was never there. Facility had gone through 2 executive directors in the past year. Is on probation from the corporate office. Horribly disorganized. Staff gets away with everything. Love the residents though. When I interviewed was told I would make one amount & ended up being paid a lower amount.

Going to work at Sunrise Senior Living was one of the best places to work with the elderly and I have worked in other places that don't quite measure up to a great company.
