Fullfiling Work PLace
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Bloomington, ILSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: friendships with residents!
Cons: seeing residents upset.
A typical work day for me starts by waking the residents up every morning at 6am. Getting them dress, bathed, breakfast, vitals, weights, and a smile! Between breakfast and lunch I help take them to the restroom, get snacks, fluids, talk to the nurse if they're not feeling well and I also take them to the activities, beauty appointments or therapy. – more... My co-workers are very helpful we are all a team, which I love! I don't mind being friends outside the work place but when at work, work comes first! The hardest part about my job is seeing a resident not doing so well, no matter how hard you try God just has a different plan. The best part of my day is that no matter what's going on I still put a smile on my face a share a laugh. Every resident is different, so you have a different relationship with that person that no one else can understand! – less

Productive
CNA (Former Employee), Mendota, ILAugust 21, 2014
My typical day would start with report from the nurse. I would help the residents with walking, or with whatever assistance they needed. I got them dressed and cleaned up for supper. I performed HS care and helped the residents to bed.

Workplace stressful but rewarding
CNA (Former Employee), Gibson City, ILJuly 1, 2014
Cons: low staffing, low moral, favoritism, work place harrassment
Typical day of work consists of assisting residents in their daily activities, and helping nursing staff record physical and mental reports. Learned that the shifts function as well as the supervising staff allowed it to function. Favoritism, and lack of teamwork would break down the care of not only the residents but the staff, and create more stress – more... then necessary for the entire shift. If the shift was working together as a team the day or night would go smoothly, and even allow the next shift to come in and have a good day or night. The hardest thing about the job was to separate work from personal life. The most enjoyable thing about the job was being able to help another person and make their quality of life better. This included not only the residents, but the staff members as well. – less

Loving team of workers trying to make the best environment possible
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Dwight, ILMay 27, 2014
I would go into work and get my showers done first, pass snacks, toilet whoever needs it, walk residents to dinner, feed, bring the residents back to their hall, get all residents toileted, clean face,hands, and teeth, and lay residents down for bed. I have learned from Heritage that to make things work team effort is essential. Most of the co-workers – more... were very nice. The hardest part of the job would be when everyone on my hall would want something at once and I would get swarmed. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the feeling when I knew that these people are safe and healthy because of me. – less

It's a job
Dietary Aide (Former Employee), Mazon, ILMay 19, 2014
Pros: good vacation benefits
Cons: everything else
It's a job and they're always hiring. You work hard. There are many there who actually care about the residents. There are just as many who feel it's just a job.

Was a good place to work for experience and people person job
Office Manager (Former Employee), Centennial, COMay 5, 2014
Pros: rewarded by the patients with positive responses, free lunches, and achievement yearend luncheons.
Cons: very long hours, not compensated for work beyond normal skills, and no med, vision, dental benefits.
I was very busy being the office manager for this company. Which I did like because it made the days seem shorter and I don't like to just sit around. I learned so much about Chiropractic, Physical Therapy and Acupuncture and there benefits to make people feel better without drugs. It was very interesting to learn about the muscles, bones, and nerves – more... of the body. We had a good time at work with the patients and doctors but was professional. I got along with all my co-workers and offered to help them when they needed it. The most enjoyable part of my job was the patient/client relationship. I loved knowing I was helping them feel better. It made me want to come to work every day! – less

Last Resort
Housekeeper & Laundry Aid (Former Employee), Carlinville, ILMarch 13, 2014
Unless you like cleaning up after the elderly, do no go here. I didn't like this job only because cleaning isn't my cup of tea. As a last resort job, it was not bad. I got about 32 hours a week.

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
