A typical day at work includes arguing, being over worked, and exhausted two hours in. You're constantly running behind because no one is willing to help you and the management is terrible. They don't care about you or any of the other aids.
The most enjoyable part of this job is the residents that treat you as family.

This was one of the best care homes for the elderly that I have worked for. Management was great. The most enjoyable part of the job was listing to some of the stories the patients told me. This would be a good first job for someone.

Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Walnut Creek, CA – April 26, 2013
Pros: co-workers are helpful
Cons: poor management
* since im working on the am shift, a typical day at work would be, waking up residents to assist their morning care (i.e showers, half baths, bathroom usage and grooming) then help them change into their daily clothes. after that would be, giving out their breakfast and assist them, if they needed the help with regards to feeding/ eating. next, if – more... they needed the help, they will press their button to let us know that they need something. we then take their vital signs for the nurses. when we are done with the care and other duties, lunch comes. for lunch its basically the same thing as breakfast where we pass out lunch trays and assist residents with eating. we then take do the second round of care by assisting them with toilet or helping them back to bed. then my shfit ends. * in general, i have learned a lot of stuffs while working in this company, just like different conditions of each resident, each isolation cases with their signs and symptoms and how to deal with them accordingly like medications and how to prevent the spread of infection * management isnt really that good. they are the im-here-if-trouble-is-here type. nothing much really have to say about them. *co-workers are really awesome. thats the reason on why working there is fun. everyone helps one another, it makes the job faster and less stressful. there are the ones that are suck-ups to the big bosses. – less
i loved working there it was the best thing happen to me, the management was great very help full. the co worker were good.i learned from the best. there was no hard part of the job.then the place went down after the new management .now if they give me 100k i will still not work there,its that bad it should be shout down
it was an excellent experience for my first job in the field that I love

Cons: orginization between management and staffing
I appreciated the lessons that I learned about the level of patient care that is required and the level of documentation that is required. Working for this company kept me on my toes and because of everything (good and bad) I am a better CNA because of it and it gave me that extra drive to continue my education
Fun place to work I love all my residents and I love to learn more and more about history and show love and appreciation.
