Honourable mission statement
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.

Home like atmosphere where we all felt like family.
Care Manager (Former Employee), Bexley, OHSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: it was like home, chances of promotions, benifits
Cons: not enough staff, created a stressful workload, high turn over rates.
Coming into work we greet each other get organized. Go over the care levels and updated information of the shift before. Check daily logs to have knowledge of what took place before your shift and the residents current status. Walking into a residents room they know you by name, smell, voice. theirs a trust respectfulness there. Every Co-worker has – more... assigned residents each day. We dance with our residents and sing with our residents Sunrise was like a second home for those of us that worked there I loved it and my residents and staff. – less

Care Manager (Danville)
Care Manager (Former Employee), Danville, CASeptember 23, 2014
Pros: the residents (i had my favorites)
Cons: the management and the staff suck
The Pay Stinks and so does the staffs attitude, if your White and a care manager the latinos and the philipinos all talk a bunch of mess behind your back or in front of you and when you try to let management know that your being harassed at work they don't do smack. So unless you let them know your bi-lingual early they won't talk about you in front – more... of your face and laugh about it like did me, little do they know this white girl speaks 3 languages........ – less

Management was a joke. Team Player Credo Not So at All
Former Employee (Former Employee), Kennebunk MESeptember 19, 2014
Pros: caregivers work hard for the residents they care for.
Cons: find a better run business. management is lacking a lot of qualifications
Very poor management. Lead by example was not shown at all. Management had their little minions to spy on and there was no team work at all. This location was a very unhealthy place to work. You couldn't trust anyone they would lie about you to better one's self. Just so draining and glad to be out of there.

Many care managers sacrificed their time – more... for the Seniors they worked while some were lazy. I saw how dedicated they were and how much I truly enjoyed getting to know the Residents.

The time I spent there was good only knowing I helped the friends I had both in coworkers but residential friends too.

The ED and nurses should be removed and filled with better trained and who have leadership qualifications, not just a title because they lack a lot. Lastly, communication was a joke. – less

productive clean and fun place to work
Care Coordinator (Former Employee), MISeptember 16, 2014
Pros: free food and snack allday.
Cons: working with ill and elderly people who were incapacitated
a typical day working at sunrise assisted living was working with assigned patients and assisting them with their assigned duties such as cleaning, bathing, feeding them as well as grooming. The things i learned working with elderly patients was how to assist them with their needs and getting know the feeling of certain patient issues that they had. – more... Management was great because they assisted you with whatever you needed as well as they demonstrated alot of work with patients for you to catch on to. to me there wasnt any hard part about this job because it was something that i liked doing, the most enjoyable part about this job was i that i made alot of patients happy to be where they were at certain times. – less

A good place to work to understand where you will be one day
Care Manager (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: beautiful locations and settings
Cons: you get attatched to the residents and it is hard to see them go
This place provides you with the experience of seeing where you will be physically and mentally as you journey through life. This in itself gives you a different perspective on the elderly

Showed up to help with the older ladies and gentlemen. Learned how important it is to take care of someone. Most joyful part of the job was being able to communicate and get to see how it was back in the older days.

overall great!!!
pss (Current Employee), kennebunk meSeptember 2, 2014
Cons: healthcare
I love working here. However, the medical and dental are so expensive that i cannot afford it for my family. Also, I feel overnights is ignored and no one sees the extra mile they go through. So it is hard to move up. But overall i have to say its a great place. they really care about the residents and i can honestly say this is by far the best place – more... i have worked for. :) – less
