I worked for this company for a year and a half at their corporate location. This company has an extremely high turn over rate, major financial issues and lack of good leadership from the top man down. Employees were constantly being asked to perform other jobs as a cost saving measure and roles were constantly changing.
Can't think of any
poor benefits, no paid vacation the first year, high turn over

Fun place to be employed at although it gets a little hectic at times. it was sad to see all the elderly not being able to care for themselves but later understood that we as the employees were there hand, feet and eyes.

Hours vary and it is difficult to make plans. Hardest part is getting patients motivated. Co-workers willing to help and work together. Can be difficult to be productive due to multiple distractions and other duties.
Difficult to plan any outside activity as day planned is not day given. Changes made overnight, have to be very flexible.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Tallahassee, FL – September 25, 2015
My typical day was inputting data into the mainframe surrounding clients information & medication. I learned many medical terms along with their meanings. I also learned the montly MARS & TARS at the end of each month. My co-workers was extremely friendly and helpful, polite and showed respect in the position I held. The hardest part of my job was pulling myself away at the end of the day. I absolutely loved everything about my position and the individuals I worked with.
Walking into the establishment seeing friendly faces
A typical day at work is clock in and get report on your patients for the day. Make sure all your patients are accounted for and get them ready for whatever activity is coming up. I make sure everyone is clean and check to see if the patients need anything at that time. Patients get care in adl's and what ever other care needed. I have fun, listen, and care for the clients when needed. The co workers are nice and good to with. The hardest part of the job is the lifting part and it wears on my body sometimes. The most important part of the job is helping the residents, family members, and co workers to ensure safety and quality of life.

While with the company I enjoyed seeing and working with my residents very mush. I was able to connect with many of them and bring joy to them through music, singing, and stories. I feel it was a very rewarding experience and the staff was wonderful
Profession employees that love and care for the residents

COTA/L (Current Employee) – Globe, AZ – July 19, 2015
Rehab Director is first-rate. Co-workers collaborate very well with patient care. Job security is excellent due to geographical location and difficulty acquiring new rehab staff. Patient care on the floor has the same problem as every SNF: CNA's are understaffed, under-trained, and underpaid, considering that they have the most time spent with direct patient care. Some are excellent, others are doing it because it's better money than minimum wage with a very short training period.
Good facility. Company appears to value patients, not just profit.
COTA/L (Current Employee) – Jackson, OH – October 2, 2014
This is a very good company to work for. Everyone is super nice to work with and you feel appreciated. Management is very flexible with schedules so it makes a wonderful place to work for if you have children. My only disappointment was when they handed out pay DECREASES company wide!
Being a CNA is a wonderful beginning to becoming a nurse for me. I love working in different surrounding and meeting new patients and new employees. I have always loved working in nursing homes or long term care facilities, its my favorite setting. Working with long term patients you also grow to become very close with family members as well as the patients. The hardest part of my job is building a relationship with my patients and they pass away. I have learned how to deal with patients passing away since I have been around it for over five years. I've learned how to cope with patient passing in my own way. I sometimes take a little time to myself by taking a break while I'm at work or maybe just taking a day off. I've learned with patients family reaching out to them and just saying sorry for your lost helps the family that knew you well. Just a nice letter or a card can help support the family feelings through a tough time and I always feel better about myself when done so. There are a lot of things that makes my job harder at times but the more experience I have the more I learn how to handle different situations. I love working in long term care facilities as a CNA and not even a little hard challenge from time to time would stop me from giving one hundred percent. Thanks. Ta'kela Washington
