Pros: steady paced environment.
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at HCR Manor Care was a day that would keep you going even if you did not want to. Everything and everyone was on the go. From waking up residents early in the morning to assisting the residents back into bed in the evening depending on the shift. I assisted in feeding, personal hygiene, bathing if need be, dressing, transportation to and from meals, activities, etc. I have learned a lot at HCR Manor Care such as and for starters my skills as a nurses aide, patience, adjustment as far as adjusting to an on going changing work environment and team work. My co-workers were amazing we all did our parts, jobs, and duties. Always lent a hand when need be. Also to help things go more smoothly and in a more timely manner. The hardest part of working at HCR Manor Care in my opinion was building relationships with residents and having to see them go. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help the residents. Making life a bit easier for them made me feel good. To know I made a difference for someone even if that meant doing something as small as handing them their glasses.
