A typical work day is typical for nursing. Rehab was a fantastic learning experience, that added to my current knowledge. The management at the time was supportive. The hardest part of the job was learning an old EHR and admissions. The most enjoyable part of the job was the residents.

Friendship Village was by the far the best nursing home/sub acute facility to work at. The patients/residents are very respectful. The facility always has enough supplies when needed. And the employees were very laid back and easily approachable.

Its bad enough that they are the lowest paid home in the area, but you have to watch your paycheck very closely because nearly half of the paychecks you receive are short and you have to ask for another check. Sometimes they make you wait 2 more weeks to correct the pay they owe you, and even then, it may still be wrong. The problem of incorrect pay compounds on itself and pretty soon you dont know how much they owe you. Management clearly makes no effort to correct this continual problem, maybe because their checks are probably ok.
The work environment is nice. Friendly staff and residents. It is a fast paced job and you have to keep up. There is very little down time, which is a good thing( I like to stay busy). Co-workers are willing to help each other

Friendship vilage was a great place to work and a great starting job for someone who hasnt worled before. Learned a lot of life skills and became friends with the residents and their families. Too many firings at the time I left and they focused on issues that werent necessary amd puahed people away from the job

The residents and some staff are wonderful to work with, but management currently leaves a lot to be desired. Most departments are short-staffed and underappreciated. Management is concerned about money, not necessarily taking care of the residents OR staff. Expectations are often unrealistic.

Nice place, but i've seen CNA's that are resident unfriendly. But I've been with others that really care for their patient/resident.The place I like the most is the rehab, because patients there are happy and really looking forward to go home.

Prepare the entire meal and do prep for the next day. Wash pans and clean work area. Weekly cleaning tasks. Make promises and then once hired not how it turns out. Some of the youth hired are disrespectful to their superiors.

Everyone is very close and friendly. Very nice place to work if you enjoy happy environment and supportive staff. The benefits are decent, tuition reimbursement is awesome, wellness points, Christmas bonus it all adds up.
You were responsible for 2 floors everyday up to 50 plus residents on 1st and 2nd shift, working 8 to 16 hour shifts. on third shift you were responsible for all the floors up to 150 residents. You didn't work with STNA it was a Care givers.. Off the streets people doing STNA jobs with hardly any knowledge and no pay. after staff would be hired they either worked 1 day or never came in at all. Always worked short handed, Began to be a LTC with needing more care and alarms, lifts, and high elopements. No communication. Could not keep a DON. The people needed more care and time for what they were paying to live there. Ceilings leaked from top floor down to bottom floor, MOLD. Too stressful for assisted living and memory care.

If your not a favored employee your time will be limited here. Vaca days after 1 yr. The resident's you work for & with are amazing, loving, and have incredible stories. You have mandatory meetings quarterly at a minimum and for some could be daily! Tardies are considered a no call no shows.... 1st one is a 3rd level corrective and the 2nd is termination.

Great work environment from the guests to the employees. From the moment you walk in the residency people are eager to know you and are friendly, respectful and helpful in case of any problems or confusion.
