Elder Care Alliance’s Commitment to Employees
A key contribution Elder Care Alliance makes to the field of aging is a commitment to developing leaders who have a calling to deliver person-centered, high-quality services in support of holistic wellness.
Our team members aren’t just doing …
They’re learning. Our new managers complete about two weeks of in depth training. Our new memory care employees complete comprehensive training to learn about the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, communication techniques and how to lead programming. They’re also taught how to engage residents in a way that meets their individual needs and interests.
They’re thinking. We encourage our care staff to find solutions to challenges as they arise. This requires critical thinking skills and a desire to be constantly improving. Our leaders also receive extensive training and opportunities for continuing development.
They’re collaborating. We foster a culture of collaboration by including key stakeholders at every level of the organization in decision-making processes, listening to staff ideas and sharing best practices across the organization.
They’re engaged. At Elder Care Alliance, we aren’t just focused on employee satisfaction but on employee engagement. We’ve spent a lot of time on our culture, ensuring our core values are lived out on a daily basis – and we measure how well we are doing. Where we have challenges, we implement action to effect change.
We do everything we can to support our employees so they feel healthy, energetic and, most of all, passionate about their work.
