Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Fond du Lac, WI – September 8, 2016
Recieved paperwork stating I would make one dollar amount only to have never recieved that dollar amount ever. When confronted they admitted their mistake but did nothing to amend it. Residents are very nice, and most coworkers are too. Pay attention to all of your paperwork to catch their mistakes asap or prepare to get ripped off!
nutritious meal and assisting (Former Employee) – Cape Girardeau, MO – August 4, 2016
I worked here as a teenager, it was for the most part fair and steady. There were a few issues that involved my school schedule and things that involved prom and graduation that they did not want to work with me on which I thought was incredibly unfair to expect a high school student to miss those things which is why I ended up leaving.
a safe and fun work environment with lots of potential to learn, grow, and move up.
Dietary Aide, Concierge, & Diet Clerk (Current Employee) – Arlington Heights, IL – July 29, 2016
The Lutheran Home is a great place to work for while they stand for a lot. It is a comfortable and safe work environment, with good management and an enjoyable and fun work staff.Management is good with answering questions, being open to come to them always with concerns, and being helpful with whatever it is you may need. They always make sure you are comfortable and are doing well with your job tasks, and if you are not they are good about always helping you and getting you up to speed. The most important thing is we know they are there for the employees when we need them. Lutheran is well kept and organized in all departments due to peoples hard work, time , and dedication. We as a team, a community, a Lutheran family stand behind Lutheran not only making sure our outpatient program and permanent residents are happy and well cared for, but that they always feel welcomed, satisfied and have an at home feel there. Lutheran also does an amazing job for recognizing its workers and showing their appreciation for the employees always and that our needs and satisfaction are always up to par as well. Lutheran gives you a large amount of opportunities to always want to better yourself whether it be inside Lutheran or helping with everyday obstacles. They strongly encourage and are supportive making it a great place to want to come to each day. A typical day at Lutheran depending on one of the several positions I handle all typically deals and goes back to the kitchen, Whether it be taking the residents food orders for the day, serving in the kitchen, busing, cleaning, answeringmore... phones, catering to residents needs and requests. It keeps you busy as there is always something to do, something to learn, something to keep you moving and going to make a what could seem like a long day go by fast while being productive. One of the harder parts is being giving a lot to do in such a short span of a day, though always managing a way to get it all done regardless. Though the hardest thing for me would have to be getting attached to residents, hearing their life stories. their struggles now and learning who they are and were as a person and having to see them sadly go. There is nothing more heartbreaking than the loss of a sweet soul though i always keep them dear and close and feel honored and happy to have gotten to spend the time with them I did and enjoying their company. Lutheran has its difficult points and traits, though over all I will be forever grateful for the opportunity I've had here. It has helped me to grow as a person, to have a better work experience and learn what I have. To give me the want to pursue my dreams and to feel good knowing I'm putting a smile on someones face even if it be just for a second and for the smallest thing. I am very proud to be part of the Lutheran Home community.less

STNA (Current Employee) – Napoleon, OH – June 14, 2016
Lutheran Home of Napoleon is a great place to work. The staff is amazing as well as the residents. The hardest part of the job is learning each resident's likes and dislikes. I really enjoy getting to know each resident on a more personal level
A fast-paced caring atmosphere helping to increase quality of life
COTA (Former Employee) – River Falls, WI – June 3, 2016
A caring atmosphere where individuals are treated with respect and dignity. Typical workload of 5-10 patients on a daily basis that consisted in ADLs and IADLs, UE strengthening, and working to increase cognition skills. Attended daily meetings and D/C meetings for patients. This was a fast pace position, requiring 90% productivity rate. This was a difficult task on some days when patients had other personal plans or issues. Patience and flexibility are key components in this setting. Therapy co-workers were the best! Always willing to listen and give feedback on patient concerns and therapy progression. The hardest part of this job was having to document while working with my patients. I feel that this takes away from valuable one on one therapy time. Completing documentation after a therapy session would cut into your productivity rate. This makes for a stressful situation when you feel like you have to run to your next appointment. The most enjoyable part of this job was interacting with my patients, seeing their progress and knowing that I helped in this process. Hearing life stories from these individuals was very therapeutic for them as well as for me.
Floor Nurse and Weekend Supervisor (Former Employee) – Cape Girardeau, MO – March 25, 2016
I began here as a new nurse, due to certain circumstances i was pushed to learn at a very rapid pace and became supervisor before my first year as a surse was complete. Great learning experience. Great floor staff and team work at this facility
The best part about working at the Lutheran home is the residents. Spending time with them and being able to be there when needed is very rewarding. The benefits are very good. However, there is a large turnover due to many different reasons. The nurses are not discreet when talking about other staff and residents in a negative way. There were a couple of instances that residents have overheard the staff talking negative about them.
Benefits, socializing with the residents, a christian environment.
Chief Assistant (Former Employee) – Wauwatosa, WI – December 4, 2015
The best part of the job was knowing day to day what exactly what you were suppose to do. The Chef made sure that whatever it was that you were to do was in writing when you came into work. I was able to change the way lunch was prepared for the women's group. My ideas were welcomed and used often. Most of the co-workers were easy to work with. Management was tolerable, but concerned about you as an employee and your ideas to help make a smooth work day.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Clinton, New York – September 10, 2015
Assisting with residents daily hygiene and personal care. I got my first year of experience here, very fast paced. Management was not very accommodating to staff making sure their was adequate staff/resident ratio. Co-workers were not very helpful because their workload was too much to assist when needed. The hardest part of the job was making sure each resident got enough one on one care time. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing I was trying to help the residents meet the best quality of life possible.
Resident Assistant (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 23, 2015
While working at the Lutheran home I have been provided with cbrf training I didn't have before working here. I feel this was a much needed , wonderful training. I enjoy all of my co-workers and residents whom I work with.
CERTIFIED NURSE'S AIDE (Current Employee) – Cape Girardeau, MO – July 16, 2015
My day at work varies from day to day. It's a nursing home so you will never know what kind of day it will be. I learned how to get my job done in a timely fashion. I get along very well with all of my co-workers. I would have to say the hardest part of my job is having to deal with the resident's family members and how they critique your job. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to take care of people and being able to put a smile on their face at the end of the day.
great workplace,enjoyable people,willing to let people grow and learn different aspects of kitchen duties

Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Cape Girardeau, MO – February 4, 2015
Assisting patients with ADL'S. The management was never to found. I believe in a Long term care setting everyone should be involved with the residents not just nursing staff. Great coworker they are the best at what they do.The hardest part of my job was seeing my residents pass. Loving them as if they were my own family was the best part.
