Working for Sienna Senior Living was an amazing experience, Taking care of elderly people will always be a great pleasure for me. Helping people is a very rewarding job.

A pleasant environment for both workers and residents at this retirement home. Opportunities for growth were provided for all workers. Inquiries were properly addressed, regular team meetings in place to provide updates to staff.

If you enjoy running off your feet and doing a job as one person when it should be two.
Forever short staffed and management does nothing to help...

Call outs to fill shifts in are done only when scheduling arrives so much later than needed and when the calls are sent out the scheduler will try quilt to make a person come in
Pros
Fantastic staff and residents .. Nurses help out when needed
Cons
Short staffing

I worked there and learned a lot. I always seek guidance as soon as I face any problem that requires proper guidance. Staff members are co-operative and helpful.

Wages are 2$ less than any other Care Facility and they wont budge at all at negotiations with Union. Expectations are over the top making you do the job of 3 by running for bed, chair alarms which are overrun and if you don't answer and reset your alarms within a certain time then there will be audits!!!!! We are running from beginning to end of shift. Usually short staffed majority of time and they don't even try to call in anyone!!! They will pull float that's the mentality. Management turnover great, staff alike. The most enjoyable part of the job is the Residents and SOME coworkers, I do really miss them..........

I worked night shift at the Scarborough location. The management has no care or respect for personal support workers. The staff have no sence of team work, its one man for himself.

Too many gossips and backstabbing within management at Silverthorn Care Community . It started promising and uplifting but shifted fast towards chaos and betrayal by Executive Director and her minions . Human rights are abused and company policy in regards to this is not enforced by the company itself you can get warned and written up for speaking your native language during lunch times who’s is not paid so your unpaid time you can’t talk to your coworkers on your native language . I have an accent and I got written up on annual review and harassed by . Wasting government subsidies are rampant and lost of equipment got tossed to garbage without being ever used but immediately purchased new batch just because budget has to be spent . Ministry visits creates panic among management but quickly hides some of the irregularities so they don’t see it . I am truly disappointed with the company and Silverthorn management . What seemed to be great career opportunity turned into nightmare and health issue. I would not recommend working for this employer and this particular home .
Pros
Residents and majority of coworkers are amazing people

The home I worked at near the Scarborough Bluffs, was by far the worst experience I have had in my career. Management is cheap, would not hire staff and make one individual do 3 different roles which is truly inhumane. The home is listed as one of the worst in Ontario because of its high employee to resident abuse. There is no such thing as communication amongst team member and the director is not approachable. There is a reason why the Ministry considers this place their second home as they are constantly there!
Cons
Long hours, poor culture, short staffed

RUN,RUN,RUN from this company terrible especially the Midland location.
CEO doesn’t care about staff and residents ONLY care about Profits.

Midland Garden have change in management every year and they treat their long service employees like trash.

No respect to employees.

Working at this company is like working in a third world country company.

Still employed but counting my days to get out. Leadership in this home is so much double faced and ignorant. Residents are used as revenue and not treated as humans. As long as they pay their rent and keep quiet they get attention. Employees are treated like slaves by Executive Director and other managers. Lots of politics and preferred treatment towards those that lie and cheat others. You can do as much as you can and work as hard as you can for 5 people but if management is not liking you then your life will become chaos . Harassment and abuse is rampant and head office is ignorant as long as money is flowing into in their Pocket . I would not suggest working here . Management is hiding abuse from Ministry by deleting records and video records.
Pros
Working with some of the most beautiful seniors

Would not recommend working for this company... no appreciation for their employees, only thing the care about is money... they take services away from residents yet charge them more money, they don’t listen to frontline workers on ways to improve and ways to make the residents and their families happy... poor pay, no communication between management and staff!

They have been through 10 Supervisor's in just a short time. Upper Management fires the Supervisor instead of dealing with the Unionized staff. The company is controlling. They are awful to work for.

These people really know how to treat you like garbage. They go out of their way to strip your confidence and leave you feeling worthless. Just pure demoralization and never any encouragement. Management is completely ignorant and play favouritism to their staff. No matter how difficult and heavy the workload is, they will throw absurd expectations and expect you to master everything in such a very short amount of time. If you're a new hire and you struggle a bit trying to adjust to the heavy workload, expect a discouraging lecture and insinuations of getting fired. Also, expect to get harassed for being too slow and have coworkers nag about you all the time. It's not about building skills and gaining experience, the only thing that matters to these people is moving super fast and programming yourself to work like a robot. Coworkers are like bullies and are always gossiping like high school girls. They have big mouths and would try to make pointless complaints about you. They also nitpick you and only nag about the things you aren't doing perfectly to their standards. But the minute you keep trying and make improvements, they ignore it and wait till the next mistake you make to complain again.

Be careful working for this company, they really do not care about you and just want to overwork you like a machine. You're not considered human to these people. Don't waste your energy and your time working so hard to leave a good impression. In the end.....they don't care and will still negatively judge your entire work performance based on the few minor errors they focus so heavily

Horrible management. Overworked staff psw's. Never enough staff. Stress from first day on. Newbies are watched like hawks but older staff allowed to abuse residents and other staff by management ignoring situations. If you complain you get let go.
Pros
Money is decent
Cons
Terrible place to work

Completely overstretched, overworked, unrealistic expectations, underpaid and NEVER appreciated. Working for this company has made me realize how much changes are needed in long term care. The staff and the residents deserve so much better. The CEO makes over a million dollars a year while staff struggle to make ends meet and residents don't get proper care. The management are unsupportive in any aspect and really don't care about you, whatsoever. As long as you're a body on the floor it doesn't matter. They won't even speak to you half the time and it's clear they don't really know what they are doing. There are some great staff who make work bearable but they deserve so much more. It's hard to see the residents not getting proper care, missing baths and skipping steps because we just don't have the staff or time. It will severely burn you out.
Pros
A lot of amazing staff
Cons
Not enough money, not supported by management, not appreciated, burn out rate very high due to the insane expectations and work load
