      I have been working at Silverado full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The great 8 are on the frontline everyday, not just a poster on a wall. The care is top notch, and the activities are world class. I've never worked where more attention is given to an individual residents needs, interests, and preferences, and more consideration and appreciation for employees. Teamwork really exists here.

      Cons

      Too much overtime for care staff

        Matching the expectations with reality

        Advice to Management

        Dig down to the details in operations to understand challenges at the care delivery level

          I worked at Silverado full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          The Residents are beyond awesome!

          Cons

          There are so many to list! Management unsupportive instead of helping out they make you feel like you're not doing enough, bee cave has a huge turn over most people don't stay more then a few days. Nurses over medicate residents so they don't to deal with them . When trying to take it to management they justify the nurses actions. Nurses rather sit in a chair in the office then get in the floor to help care for the residents....

          I worked at Silverado full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          Residents and their families, a handful of employees

          Cons

          MANAGEMENT. They try to make it seem like it's about the residents but it's not. It's all about the almighty dollar. They take residents that are not appropriate endangering the other residents and staff and if you speak up your fired you try to send residents out for behaviors your fired if you don't falsify evidence to prevent having to send out residents your fired. Zero write ups but one day because you didn't do...

          Advice to Management

          Stop worrying about your pockets being full and start worrying about the multiple law suits you have from not sending residents out. Stop being so impressionable and try to actually care about your staff. Stop promising family members impossible things.

          I worked at Silverado full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          I care about the elderly. I have alot of compassion, understanding, the patients all seem to like me. At Silverado the diffacult ones bonded with me & would allow me to care for them, where as they didn't always let other CNA's help them. I'm soft spoken, easy going & they pick up on that. My old boss of 14 years at City of Hope was a patient there until his passing. Jeff Chapman. He was embarrassed to see friends,...

          Cons

          The only cons I had while working there were that I liked to keep busy & workin 3-11 gave me free time in the evening. So instead of watching alot of TV I would do laundry for the overnight shift to fold. That was just me.

          Advice to Management

          There was a nurse who had alot in common with me, we both grew up in a Military family, even lived on the same Base at a young age. She began picking on me alot, so I complained, but got no where. I was at the feeding table, guess she didn't see me behind the piller feeding a resident so I got in trouble. Once again I said something & nothing was done. I felt management should have spoken to us both.
