    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

    In the community where I am, the team is well intended and cares about the residents.

    Cons

    As in any assisted living community, you have to be there because you love the residents, not the pay because its not a lot.

    Pros

    Core Values and Principles of Service keep focus on team members and residents, competitive pay and benefits, great place to be if you have a passion for the work, good leadership at several levels, comprehensive training available

    Cons

    May not be a good experience for team members who don't have a passion for serving others, emotionally demanding work that can be draining if you don't maintain work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to improve support to communities by adding resources, modernizing tools, update some of the older training modules
