caring for the elderly in a long term setting
CNA (Current Employee) –  Albert City, IAAugust 15, 2015
Direct care. Its hard work, not everyone can do it. It takes a kind and caring individual to care for others in a long term setting. There are many personalities, individuals with multiple issues. Learning and knowing how to handle different issues/conditions/diseases can be difficult. Everyone is different and learning and getting to know the individual is a must. It makes the job easier and easier for the resident. Attitude is a big plus and a smile goes a long way.
Pros
What to wear isn't a hassle
Cons
you never know what the day is going to be

Housekeeping (Former Employee) –  Metter, GAMay 28, 2015
A typical day at work went by smoothly as long as none of the patients got upset for getting their rooms cleaned. I learned how to deal with the patients professionally. My co-workers acted like they did not want to be there. The hardest part of the job was cleaning the bathrooms. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking and getting to know most of the patients and making them feel special by just listening to them and giving them my attention.
Pros
good medical benefits
Cons
got hit by patients

I have never felt more at home or comfortable in a working environment. It was an amazing work experience. Unfortunately the pay isn't great but it is comparable to the other care facilities in the are.

Nice people, doing the best they can with what little they have.
Dietary Assistant (Former Employee) –  Mount Airy, MDJanuary 23, 2015
The facility is old and there is not much to work with. The residents are in dire need and the staff here does as much as they can for the residents. The kitchen is an interesting place to work because it gives a totally different take on the whole of the nursing home. For a part time job while taking 5 college classes, it was just fine.
Pros
i did'nt think about it when i was home and off of work(stress free)
Cons
not challenging, not a well paying job.

Nice place to work and to care for your loved ones.
LPN (Former Employee) –  Monroe, WISeptember 4, 2013
Over all caring atmosphere. Lots of activities available. Activity personnel friendly'. Upper management tough but they really try to make sure residents are cared for. CNA's over all are great and show true compassion for the residents as evidence by there cares and the relationships built. Supervisors are very busy as they handle most of the things that go wrong giving floor nurses time for safe med passes and skin checks. Over all Pleasant view is a great example on how long term facilities should be run.
Pros
over all the management and employee choices.
Cons
management can be a little brutal but also a con.
