A typical work day is very busy, if you're not constantly busy, then you are not doing your job. You are to be constantly involved with the residents, either feeding them, transferring them from their chairs, beds, wheelchairs, or showers/bathtubs, or you are assisting them with daily exercises or activities such as bingo, church, or other fun things the activity directors plan. The managers are slightly scatter brained at times and can come down pretty hard on you if something goes wrong, even if it isn't your fault. If a resident gets out of bed on their own when they are not suppose to and you've taken every precaution to make sure they are safe and the resident still falls and gets hurt...you still get the blame for it. It sucks. Really bad.
Benefits, location, coworkers
they fire you over the littlest things, short breaks, unfriendly management, not enough pay for the amount of work we do!!
