Julia Manor, Hagerstown md (Current Employee) – Hagerstown MD – August 7, 2014
I've done this type of work for the past 5 years. Theres enjoyable parts about it and then not so enjoyable at times. I enjoy being able to help other people and I have always put others before myself. Most of the places I've worked the Management hasn't been that great, some of them like to put the aides down a lot which isn't fair because we do most of the work for the patients. That's the number one reason why I need a change of scenery for a while.
Great working team providing the best customer service and care
Staffing Coordinator/Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Bel Air Md – May 19, 2014
Working with the elderly provides different and unique learning experiences on a daily basis. I work with such a great group of individuals who provide the utmost quality of care. We sometimes fall in love with them and it is painful when we must say goodbye. As we become part of their lives they become entwined in ours.
A typical day at work free flowing and stress free. Learned how to communicate with my co-workers. Management should always be available for issues and situations. Co-workers know team work. the hardest part of the job is not being able to get help when needed. the most enjoyable part is the patients caring for them and assisting them.
Hardworker TeamPlayer and provide excellence care.

I provide basic patient care under direction of nursing staff. Perform duties such as feed, bathe, dress, groom, or move patients, or change linens. May transfer or transport patients. Help fellow co-workers with patients. It may become overwhelming but you have to remain focus as GNA to provide the best care as possible.
Packer/Picker (Former Employee) – Goraya – April 6, 2014
I used to pack nut-bolts. I was free and my friend told me to that GNA was hiring people. I enjoyed working there and learned a lot of things. The hardest part was when something goes wrong we had to open the packages and repack them again. All my co-workers were friendly and i got along with them. I enjoyed their company.

GNA (Former Employee) – Parkville, Maryland – December 12, 2012
Coming to your regular unit getting report and having to find out at the last minute that you are being pulled. This makes things difficult to other residents who you do not know and they do not know you. This slows down the care process for those involved. Managment need to have extra staff on hand for problems such as this. The hardest part is getting the residents whom who have to give care to to trust your judgment and communicate with you things they can inform you about concerning their care within reasonable standards.The most enjoyable part of the job is getting eveything done accordingly to the needs of the residents and know that you have accomplished a task that may have been streesful at the beginning but fullfilled the need with satisfaction to and for the resident.
receiving assistance from others who the unit
not having the proper assistance to get the job done as needed from other staff.

its always pleasing to see the resident smile when you are extending a helping hand to them. helping to learn how to do what they are not able to do and as well as assisting them to do what they can not do.
