A great place for seniors to live the higest quality of life
Director of Sales (Current Employee), Stamford, CTMarch 8, 2014
Pros: free lunch. the amount of support that is available at all times.
At Sunrise Senior Living I am the Director of Sales. It is my responsibility to ensure that budgets are met on a weekly basis in regards to the numbers of occupants in the building. This is done by advancing sales with our current lead base and creating relationships with professionals to ensure referrals are being made to the community. I work directly – more... with the executive director and North East Regional team members in order to decrease any and all concerns that a new buyer may have regarding finances. Financial concerns of new buyers is the most difficult part of the job. I enjoy working with seniors and making the end of life for each person the highest quality of life it can be. – less

Fun and rewarding place to work
LVN Care manager (Current Employee), Beverly Hills, CAFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: one on one care, create bonds with the residents and their families, 3$ meals for employees.

facilitated art group
Volunteer (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: volunteer
Cons: no challenge
I worked within the activities department and sometimes with the Activities Coordinator. I was a self-starter but had a little help from the Activity Coordinator with facilitating a painting group with a few ladies that enjoyed painting as much as I did. I mainly worked on my own, socializing with residents including dementia residents. The hardest – more... part would be to persuade residents to participate sometimes. The most enjoyable was interacting with residents and participating in the activities with them. – less

A rewarding place to work.
Care Manager (Former Employee), BramhallFebruary 22, 2014
A typical day at work would involve getting straight on the floor from 7am and helping the elderly residents get ready for the day ahead, this would involve getting ready 10 people in a matter of 2 hours. Once these residents have been brought to breakfast it is then our responsibility to serve in the dining room as well as looking after our residents, – more... after breakfast it is then our responsibility to take our 10 residents to wherever they want to go and proceed with room tidies, this involves cleaning, remaking, changing any dirty towels or bedding, followed by taking all residents to the dining room again for lunch whom of which we would serve as well. Typically in the dining room it would be around 60 residents to 10 staff serving.
The staff where all very friendly and easy to talk too as were the residents, the one thing I learned is that no matter how old you are you're still young at heart! – less

Loving residents, evil staff, and managers
Caregiver (Former Employee), Johns Creek,GaFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: loving residents
Cons: management, staff, pay
A typical day of work: Arrive at 7am and they(managers) expect for you to have residents in dining room by 8am. And remember its 8-9 residents for 1person, wake up,change,etc. 10am all residents must be in room. Do showers, laundry, changing, etc. 11:30am start getting residents down for lunch at 12. You take resents down, take orders,serve, and clean – more... up dining room. 1:30 pm take resents back up, clean, change, check laundry. 2:30 do your last round. I learned how these seniors have so much to teach. Co-workers were horrible!!!! They verbally abused residents, didn't shower them(would write in the book that they didn't want a shower), would leave them wet and with feces. Once I spoke to upper management they didn't do anything, they got me out because a company doesn't like their dirty laundry out. assisted living coordinator had "hot spots" because families would pay her under the table to take "extra care" of certain residents. Hardest part of the job: they want you to do everything in that 8hour period, no break nothing. Kitchen would run out of food and serve the same thing 2x a week. Residents were so loving and caring. kitchen staff were rude and unprofessional. PLEASE I BEG YOU DO NOT TAKE YOUR FAMILY TO SUNRISE OF JOHNS CREEK!!!!!!! – less

workplace very enjoyable
Mills Run Senior Living (Former Employee), bristol,paFebruary 16, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: the disbelief that others not willing to care for patient properly
The clients were great. I've learned to work with Alzheimer's and demented clients. My co-workers were all team players. The hardest part was seeing their family members in disbelief of the clients mental illness. The most enjoyable part was the satisfaction I got for caring for someone who couldn't do for themselves.

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
