A daily routine at work
Care Manager (Current Employee), Woodland Hills, CAFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: being able to interact with the residents and making them laugh
Cons: too little pay for a great demand of one worker in an 8 hour period
My duties are giving quality time to each of the resident's I look after, and help them in anything that they might need help doing. That would include showers, feeding, changing diapers, reminiscing over their family and their careers in their past. As well as serving in the dining room, washing the dining room materials, and doing residents laundry. – more... I learned on to manage time, being able to work in a fast paced work area, and just knowing how much of a difference I can make on someone's life – less

Care Manager/ Lead Care Manager (Current Employee), Southampton, ENGJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: long shift
Cons: you have to pay for your food even though you work 13 hour shift.. it should be free :p
Every day is different. The morning shift is the busiest time of the day, you have to help resident with shower and dress them sometimes its hard if the resident refuse, you really have to be patient with them. A lot of different approach to be made before you finish one person. by the way i work in reminiscence where people in late dementia. it is – more... a tough place to work but a good place to be. the hardest part of my job is death. we get to know resident and after sometime we lose them, it is very sad. – less

Daily working procedures
Maintenance Director (Current Employee), Alexandria, VAJanuary 13, 2014
Pros: making the residents happy and comfortable
Cons: lack of acknowledge in hard work
I begin my day with checking the maintenance request log and prioritize requests.

Communicate with the sales team about move ins or move outs and ensure apartments are up to company – more... standards and in move in ready condition. Communicate with my housekeeping staff that consists of 4 housekeepers about room schedule and resident requests. The most enjoyable part of my job was making the residents happy and comfortable while they are staying with us. – less

Need to be extremely organized in order to function
Business Office Coordinator (Current Employee), Fleetwood, NYJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: the company's standards for hiring are high, the best employees are hired for the job, residents and thier families always receive the best quality of care from every angle
Cons: the hiring turnaround is extremely high, not enough support provided to the front line employees and their managers
The company's bottom line goal is positive and motivating, however not enough focus on "team morale". The Mid-Level Management team can typically feel over worked and under appreciated.

The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you have helped families go through the transitions of life as smoothly as possible.

Care Giver (Former Employee), Woodland Hills, CAJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: you will lose alot of weight from running around all day
Cons: you never work more than 8 hours a day, so can never get benes
Enjoyed working with the seniors, there is always something to do, is challenging taking care of the seniors while also doing the houekeeping, waiting tables, and kitchen work. Barely any time for breaks, overall worth it.

Rewarding and loving place
Server (Current Employee), Lombard, ILJanuary 6, 2014
When I start to talk to my residents all my worries and problems go away. It is like I have 40 grandparents. I absolutely love working with the elderly. I try and make dinner an enjoyable social event and not just a plain dinner. I kitchen staff is great. Sometimes it is hard to communicate with management but they try to resolve any issues. If I cannot – more... talk to my direct supervisor there are plenty of supervisors I can talk to. I have learned that I truly love helping people, seniors in particular. One thing that was hard in the beginning was knowing everyone's likes and dislikes. It becomes easy if you just have conversation with the residents. – less

A little about Sunrise
Care Manager (Current Employee), Baton Rouge, LADecember 27, 2013
Pros: relaxed and laid back
Cons: when numerous pages come in at one time and youre only able to help one person at a time
Every day is different. Most days are relaxed and enjoyable. Its a pleasure to be able to give the gift of helping. Our company goes above and beyond the call of duty to promote a quality of life for the geriatric population. To me the hardest part of the job is death. We get so attached to the residents , that its sad to lose them. The most enjolyable – more... part of the job is the interaction and activities we do for them. A typical day at work is follwing your assignment sheets. Laundry and showers also setting the dining area and a little cleaning as well. We assist our residents with anything they need. Grooming , eating, showering, bathing, etc – less
