It's not as bad as you'd expect.
Direct Care Worker (Current Employee) – Whitehall, MI – November 11, 2017
I thought I was coming into a nursing home based setting. I was wrong. No wiping butts for me. Clients are mentally ill, not physically impaired. Our Residents are as good as you treat them, and like all of us, they do have their bad days. So you can't expect a good day, every day. They don't pay all too much, but this field of work is overlooked by many. I have received 2 raises in the year I have worked here. My manager is an amazing woman, who is very understanding and caring of both her staff and residents. I feel valued here. I do not plan on leaving any time soon.
Decent pay, 3 days per week, feeling valued.
