Fun, warm environment to work in.
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – March 10, 2014
My days are never typical. I help to take care of 75 elderly men and women. In the mornings I start by updating the census and e-mailing everyone on campus to let them know if our resident status has changed, after that I do an array of tasks from taking care of maintenance requests, correspondence, faxing etc.
I work very closely with my supervisor, keeping her calendar, creating family e-mails for her using our constant contact system, compiling our monthly orders, keeping her updated on things going on and a wide variety of other tasks.
My co-workers are all very warm and friendly and we all work together great. We communicate by radio most of the day. I take care of their schedules, PTO requests and help them with their education requirements.
The hardest part of my job is when we lose one of our residents as they are all like an extended family. But at the end of the day you can leave knowing that you were one of the people that helped to make the end of their life easy and enjoyable. It's a curse and a blessing all at the same time.
The easiest part of my job goes hand in hand with the hardest part; my residents. They bring me joy every day and it’s a good feeling to be able to go into work and feel like you are also at home. Working at PVN has taught me that we are all individuals and the elderly are no different then anyone else, they just know a lot more and have better stories.
