Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – October 6, 2017
There were too many long-term projects and not enough day-to-day management in place to work on the projects efficiently. Never enough hours in the day to do all of the tasks as outlined by management.
Lima (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 10, 2017
Management is rude and distasteful. No day to day involvement with residents. Zero interests in care or safety of residents. Lack of staff training, zero follow through with anything. Huge staff turnover
Unit Secretary CNA (Former Employee) – Gerry, NY – February 10, 2017
Loving caring place to work. Incentivess for employess. Loved the job. Drove everyday for an hour in a forms of weather. To hold someones hand when needed most to give them proper care during their most respected time of their lives. Always someone to talk to when needed help or concerns.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Cassadaga, NY – October 30, 2014
Assist residents with activities of daily living, most of what I do is in my resume but would like to add that working in a nursing home is wonderful, I really grew a heart for the residents I tended too.
Great atmosphere, enjoyable work
Having to withstand the smells but nothing really wrong.
CMA/Caregiver (Former Employee) – Gladstone, MO – October 1, 2014
Heritage Village was my introduction to nursing. I enjoyed the other nurses that I worked with but really didn't see eye to eye with management. I loved the residents there and they all appreciated me too. I would go above and beyond for my fellow nurses and residents. I also earned a bonus for obtaining a new resident, providing a tour and having the resident stay for more than 3 months. The hardest part of the job, of course, was having to say goodbye. As my stepping stone, this is where I learned the basics of the nursing job.
I fell in love with nursing.
Management. Can totally explain if given the opportunity!
Ophthalmic Assistant (Current Employee) – Snellville, GA – July 19, 2014
Becoming an Ophthalmic Assistant is exciting. Working with 20+ patients a day makes it an interesting day. I can feel I am really helping people see. My eye sight has always been infallible so I have had no personal experience with a optometrist working on my eyes. It's disheartening to see people come in with eye sight that causes them distress and personal complications in life, but i find joy in giving them a new life with a new set of eyes. The hardest part of the job is seeing a patient cry, it breaks my heart. The management at Heritage Vision Center leaves something to be desired. The health care insurance unbearably expensive. I would have to hand over most of my paycheck once a month to afford it, while the office manager, who made twice the amount of me, had his insurance paid for.
CNA/Caregiver (Current Employee) – Gerry, NY – June 26, 2014
Its a nice environment but at times can be stressful. The nursing staff seems to care a great deal about the people they are taking care of and go out of their way to make sure their residents are happy and comfortable. It is a small place so there is a family atmosphere built right in. Most of the co workers treat each other with respect, and all of the residents are treated with dignity and compassion. The hardest part of this job is seeing someone pass away but there is a good support system in place to help their aids from getting burned out. The most enjoyable part of this job is getting to interact with the residents and build relationships with them.
I loved working private duty for this woman. She was always in a good mood, I enjoyed going there to help her with anything she needed. I learned about growing old slowly as she said was patients, smile everyday, enjoy what life has to offer you & never go to bed mad.
Very demanding job; nurses were not always willing to help.
Certified Nurse Aide (Former Employee) – Gerry, NY – July 30, 2013
Cared for the elderly w/various health issues. Learned mechanical equipment and easier ways to assist clients. Mgmt. was good but the nursing supervisors were not always pleasant. Co-workers worked as a team. Having to finish certain clients needs by end of shift. I enjoyed the different clients.
Different clients to assist. Some overtime.
Dealing w/the nursing staff and worrying about being attacked by certain clients.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Gerry, NY – October 29, 2012
I would go into work, say hello to all the ladies in the kitchen(and josh). Then get to my station prepare it for the evening and then get straight to work. The girls and I would always have fun joking around, but would always get our work done, and if one of us was running behind someone who was ahead would always help out. I had to quit this job because I wasn't getting paid enough for the commute from South Valley to Gerry.
