incompassionate work atmosphere
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Bloomington, ILJanuary 24, 2014
Management does not care how hard you work or how much you care about the residents. They just want you to be physically at work. They hire mainly inexperienced kids right out of high school, who seem to think that many aspects of their job is someone else's problem. Their is no communication between management and staff and there are also no learning – more... environments to help the new aides and nurses fully understand their job. It is a very beautiful building but looks can be deceiving. – less

Had many firsts of my nursing career.
LPN (Former Employee), Jacksonville, ILNovember 8, 2013
Pros: excellent patient care
Cons: never really knew where we stood unless we were in trouble for something
It was an amazingly difficult place to work at. Employee morale was low, but patient care was excellent. I learned so much about myself and life in general while I was there. It was a constant test of my limits, many times I exceeded what I thought were my limits. I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. Many good lessons in workplace politics. – more... Developed lasting friendships while I was there. We had to really support each other and deep bonds were formed. – less

Kitchen Assistant (Former Employee), Dwight, ILSeptember 20, 2013
Pros: free food

You have to learn a lot when you start, and learn to move fast paste. The most enjoyable part was the residence, getting to talk and make them laugh!

A typical day for me was going to work and performing care for the elderly and helping out on the rehabilitation wing with those needs. I learned how to work as a team member their since this was my first health care job. My co-workers were always their to help an assist with needs during the work day.

Caring for the resident's
CNA (Current Employee), Mendota, ILApril 14, 2013
Pros: working with the resident's
Cons: not as much time as i would like to have with each individual resident
A typical day at work consists of getting each resident I have for the day up and washed, dressed, and shaved if needed in time for breakfast. After breakfast, each resident needs to be taken to the restroom. Then, residents need to be taken to the restroom again in time for lunch. After feeding the residents who need assistance, I would take the residents – more... to the restroom again, and lay them down for a nap if requested. This job has taught me to be a much more responsible individual since my responsibilities include caring for others each work day. My co-workers are great people who are great with team work. The hardest part of my job is not being able to have as much time with each individual resident. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to know each individual resident. – less

plenty of work hours and shifts
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Dwight, ILMarch 3, 2013
Pros: decent pay and incentives
Cons: different rules for different people
at Heritage Health in dwight I felt very let down by things that happened I loved working there and was prn just waiting for full time which when it finally came a simple misunderstanding ended it I was fired. and no matter what I said or promised they wouldnt even give me the chance to try I was given no warnings or write ups of any kind I was just – more... let go and now I know that they are running short staffed with some people that I feel arent the best care givers for the residents just the fact that they will work tons of hours and shifts and put heritage first before their families is the only reason they are employed and I am not I would have stayed there long term and been happy with it but they squashed that – less

The BEST place I ever worked for
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Gillespie, ILDecember 20, 2012
Pros: staff takes true pride in care of residents, good management, no abuse or neglect
I worked for the Heritage in Gillespie, IL. The staff are very good people, I learned so much from them all. It is like one big family, everyone helps when you need them. I discovered the true meaning of love and respect for residents.I worked here from 09/2012-11/2012, and I loved this place. Sadly I had to move away so I don't work there anymore. – more... This is the BEST place to work for, trust me! – less

Aweful place to work at.
Housekeeper/Cook Aide (Former Employee), Litchfield, ILDecember 12, 2012
Pros: it was very good pay and had good benefits.
Cons: they worked you full-time every weekend when you were hired as part-time.
Start breakfast and set the tables, serve breakfast to the residents at 6 am, clean, prepare for lunch and serve at 11 am, do residents' laundry and clean their apartments throught the day (2 days a week),grocery shop for the facility, prepare for supper and serve at 4 pm, clean up and go home at 6pm. Management was very discriminative and two-faced – more... with no real care for the residents. Co-workers were also two-faced and disregarded the fact that I was a mother who was working every weekend because the 68yr. old female co-worker has dates on weekends. The hardest part of the job was dealing with all the rude comments from employees about me and the residents without walking out. The most enjoyable part was sitting and chatting to the residents and getting to know their likes and dislikes. – less

I love the residents but hate the staff
Dietary Aide (Current Employee), Mount Zion, ILOctober 16, 2012
Pros: residents! and kitchen staff, and like 3 cnas!
Cons: the other 20 cnas!
The CNAs are LAZY!!!!
They think they own the place, and their all for the most part stuck up!
There is a few that are super nice but for they year+ that i have worked at Heritage most of them are two-faced and its immature at that!
I love the residents with all my heart, sometimes i go in on my days off because i miss them! its so nice to have people – more... care for you as if you were their own grandchildren. – less

Not a Bad place to work if you can turn a Blind eye
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Dwight, ILJuly 26, 2012
Pros: vacation pay for full time employees
Cons: certain privileges for certain employees
They are favorable to certain employees and if you're not one of them, you will definitely be made aware of it. The priveleged ones are allowed to make their own schedules and get away with multiple call ins and various other things without consequences.CNA's are overworked, underpaid, and management does little to nothing to show appreciation. Therapy – more... department is an absolute joke. The laziest department I have ever seen in a nursing home facility. – less

You must of been fortunate enough to work for a Heritage Health that gave a hoot about you. Unfortunately, I didn't get so lucky. Don't work for the one in Dwight, IL
