home like atmosphere
LPN/Charge Nurse (Former Employee), Shrewsbury, PAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: excellent pay
Cons: management disconnection with work load
More of a home like feel then a nursing home. It was a really great group of people to work with. I worked third shift, on which we had a nightly crew of late night residents. The hardest part of the job was working with a minimal staff, which did not allow for a adequate amount of time to be spent with individuals. the most enjoyable part of my job was just being a part of each of the residents life on a daily basis.

Satisfying and helping job
Social Service Assistant (Current Employee), Midland, MIJune 24, 2014
A normal day consists of me helping disabled persons live their daily lives as normally as possible. I do different things such as bathing, dressing, cleaning, and assisting with eating. The most important thing I've learned is to not take anything in life for granted because it won't always be there. My co-workers are important to my job because we team up to help our clients with what they need. The hardest part of the job is seeing people not be able to do things that most take for granted. The most enjoyable part of the job is how appreciative my clients are for helping them.

Making a different
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MNJune 20, 2014
Pros: going out on outings and seeing the individual smiles
Cons: not enough staff
I enjoy and love making someones day. Although my individuals was nonverbal seeing them smile or laughing is good enough for me.

A day at work would be getting the individuals off the buss, folding laundries, prepping dinner, feeding the individuals, bathing them, watch tv or play games with them until bed time.

I have learned so much with this job if you don't have a big heart don't bother. This job is all about companionship, making a different in someones life and it makes you see life different.

the hardest part about this job is when you individual is sick and they can't tell you cause their nonverbal.

Fun place to work
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee), Shrewsbury, PaJune 17, 2014
Pros: excellant benefits
Cons: rumor control is like a wildlfower
Work there on evening shift, exceptional team work. Pay was great
caring for the residents is my passion, love to talk with these historians. Nice place to work but there are a few things that need to be addressed one the nurse manager there is not up front with the employee's. Tells you one thing but does another and she has her favorites, if you are the ugly duckling than that's too bad write up's, write up's, write up's. On a happier note it was truly a good place to work.
