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.

Working with Alzheimers and Dementia patients is very challenging
Caregiver (Former Employee), Palm Springs, CAJuly 22, 2014
Pros: helping the elderly and benefits
Cons: job was taken over by new management company
Providing care for the elderly I learned new things. Every day patients depending on me to provide care that they need for every day life. I enjoyed making a difference in someone life. You have to have a lot of patience to work with the elderly. Every day is not the same.

Great Learning Experience
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee), Rocky River, OHJuly 22, 2014
A typical day of work provides the greatest learning experience for new and upcoming nurses. Management has an open door policy. The hardest part of the job is not being there enough. The most enjoyable part is being there is seeing the nursing process in play for real life experiences and learning different companies protocol.

Highly stressful environment with little support and very poor management
Department Coordinator (Former Employee), Newtown Square, PAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: great budget, high standards, excellent training
Cons: very demanding job, little support, poor management, and high turnover
Sunrise as an organization (and at the corporate level) is a leader in the senior living industry and wants the best for its residents and employees. They have very high standards and many quality initiatives or "signatures" as they are referred to (although some are unrealistic and very difficult to maintain without a true team effort), are very policy-oriented. – more... and provide excellent training. They have significantly improved their operations in recent years, but have a ways to go to truly be the employer of choice.

However, this particular community (Newtown Square, PA) is absolutely horrific, with very low census, high turnover (particularly with department heads/coordinators), a very weak and inept Executive Director and fractured management team, a highly stressful environment with little support when it really is needed, low employee and resident morale, and a building that needs some major cleaning and upkeep,

I would strongly advise anyone who is considering a position at this particular Sunrise community to STAY AWAY and save yourself from a miserable and agonizing work experience!! – less

Stressful, No team work, poor management
LPN Medication Manager (Current Employee), Newtown Square, PaJuly 8, 2014
Pros: most residents appreciate hard workers
Cons: poor support
I love my residents and many of my co-workers but Sunrise Newtown square is not a good place to work. They work you like a dog and pay you peanuts. You don't stop from the time you clock in until the time you clock out which by the way you NEVER clock out on time. Management does not appreciate all the hard work they say they need to stop overtime. – more... The director uses the terms "make residents" do this or that and "because I'm the boss I can do what I want" including having socials where she enjoys consuming plenty of alcohol. The moral sucks – less

A great place of caring and support of our senior populatioin
Care-giver Supervisor/Med (Former Employee), Springfield, VAJuly 7, 2014
Pros: getting to take them on outings
Cons: there really weren't any
Sunrise Assisted Living is a great place to experience and share the love and care level for our senior population. It is a gratifying place to work! A typical day was greeting each resident and exchanging hugs. Helping them to bathe, dress and mobilize for their day which always began with a great and hearty breakfast prepared by the culinary staff. – more... I learned that hey could do much more for me than I could ever do for them, but I truly enjoyed trying, especially when someone who hadn't walked in weeks walked for you. Management was caring and wanted each day in the life of a resident to be a step forward. The co-workers were of the same mind and worked toward the same goal, which was to enhance the life of every resident they serviced. The most enjoyable part of the job was when a family member expressed their gratitude for a positive moment that was expressed or was evident in the life of their parent, or other family member. The hardest part of the job was not showing sadness toward a resident who never had a visitor while experiencing their observance of other resident friends go off for the day with their family and friends. The most enjoyable part of the day was listening to the stories they would tell of their life long experiences or the huge smiles on their faces, while playing a game, when they would remember the answer to a question, or receive an unexpected gift for winning the game. But most of the time, everyone who played received something at the end of the game. – less
