    Pros

    The residents are truly the reason the employees of Sunrise go to work; we enjoy giving and providing a comfortable home for these respectable elders of ours. The general care managers and staff truly work together to help one another and this can be reflected in the care they provide; the best.

    Cons

    - The higher positioned staff or so called Coordinators have a definite lack of care or acknowledgement of the work being done by their employees. Those who have worked there for years are not given proper incentive to be giving the care they do.
    - Wages are a huge con
    - Such strict policies and budgets in the dining area cause problems with ordering and sufficient food supplies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turnover rates at my current home have drastically increased, indicating there has been some negative changes. I have noticed a huge different in the way things have been done in the past year and see residents unhappy with these changes. Maybe truly ensuring your coordinators, not just ED's, are performing to the best of their abilities should be mandate for your company.... because I truly see they are not performing as headquarters would hope.

    Pros

    A long-term care facility for memory challenged individuals that actually really care about the well-being of their residents and respects and rewards their employees who exemplify kindness, dependability and responsibility.

    Cons

    Pay rate is average and hours can quickly turn into overtime if scheduled staff don't show up for work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. It's a rare thing that long-term care facilities put their residents first and the bottom-line second.
