Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Toms River, NJ – February 20, 2013
Typical day at work, when youré there first things first is see where floors are you assingned coz magnolia gardens is a three floors assisted living facilities, then checks whose on your care and see whose gonna take their bath on s apecific day and go around and checks the resident. The management is good they are treating all their employees equally and with respect, my co workers are wonderful people. The hardest part of the job for me is when a resident doesnt like to be bathe, oh, you've got a lot of convincing to do, but if really they are not good at it just give them a sponge bath and it will be ok for them, the most enjoyable part of the job is when the residents take parts in activities especially created for them such as singing, some of them can dance some of them play cards and other activities lined for them to do, oh I miss those people, they like my family to me.
lunch is free, we can even have dinner sometime.
you cant avoid residents who are hard to handle, who dont want to be changed
