Activity Aide (Former Employee), Streamwood, IL – July 28, 2015
Working at this facility opened my eyes to see and observe what people go through and experience as they get older. It taught me to appreciate life a little bit more and that one day, I'll reach a point where I may have to depend on others to care for me, which is a scary thing to think about.
Medical Office Assistant (Former Employee), Lexington, NC – January 27, 2015
I learned a lot working at Lexington Healthcare Center and I will carry those skills on with me to other jobs in the future. Even though management was not as good as it could have been, I still enjoyed my days and got the best experience in my 2 years there.
Assist patients (Current Employee), Lexington, NC – September 12, 2014
Pros: free breakfast
Cons: short staffed
A typical day at work includes providing essential care to residents. I've learned to be patient with my residents and to always provide the most quality care for them. The management in the facility is – more... very well organized and my co-workers are very helpful. The hardest part of my job would be losing patients that I've built relationships with. The most enjoyable part of my job would be interacting with my patients on more personal levels. – less
