Pros: residents, becomeing close friends with employee's
Cons: benifits, occasionaly management
A typical day at work includes; assisting the residents on my hall of the assisted living home, conversing with residents, charting, and being useful to other employee's if i can help. I've learned to manage my time and how to operate equipment in the facility but also how to take special care for residents who are needy. The hardest part of the job – more... in my opinion is trying to care for all the residents but I've learned to manage my time because of it. My co-workers are some of the nicest people I've met but there's others that i work fairly well with. The management at the facility isn't the best and it's hard to get them to take action on what's needing to be done and if a issue arises, they typically don't act right away. The most enjoyable part of the job i believe is how me and the residents get along but also how I have made a impact on them from working there. – less
Pros: great money, great benefits, ownership of your job !, accountability on daily task to make it the best for the patients, motivated to keep going in school
This company was great ! They are very lenient with time off and will actually rely on you to do your job for the patients. It is a hard job and anything in healthcare is !! but the owners understand that and really love the accountability. They give you the ownership of a position in every part of the company that allows you to "own " your job ! I – more... make a difference every day in this company. The pay is good not great but the whole industry is behind on pay but they do have good benefits also. The owners understand every job they have in this company and really appreciate you and motivate you to do your best every day for the patient ! I know there were so many that felt they weren't appreciated but you have to like your job first to know if you are doing well. I only left for schooling. Miss it and hope to go back soon. – less

Pros: some good co workers
Cons: short supplies, no briefs for residents, management
This nursing home is a mess. No good benefits.management trieds to intimate workers. Grown people playing high school games.Co worker dating each others while married. Management do not stand behind good workers. This place lies to family members to get their love ones in this place. Then families expect superior care for their love ones. Not happening.

Medication Aide (Current Employee), greenville texas – April 22, 2013
Legend healthcare was my first cna employment. While i was employed there i went to school for medication aide and they allowed me the opportunity to advance to that position, I am currently still employed by this company,
I enjoy working at legend oaks. I work with 20 to 30 patients daily with many types of diagnoses and treatments. I love my Job, I work well with people. The hardest part of my job is patients that dont make it. The most enjoyable part is helping them recover and watching them go home.
