Typical work day was busy but full of fun. I learned a great deal about the people living there. Management is amazing they are very understanding and helpful. Workplace culture there is a lot of team work. Hardest part of the job was the attachments you make. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to spend time with all the wonderful residents there
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Guin, AL – March 21, 2017
I worked here for over 3 years. I loved my job, and loved coming to work for more than 2 years. Unfortunately the workplace environment became very poor from management down. It seemed like a lot of employees were trying to get other employees in trouble constantly. Management even went after a few people. Very unprofessional and made the workplace environment unfriendly and uncomfortable. Constantly watching your back and looking to see who was working before you left for work is no way to have to try to make a living. Before the shift or change or whatever happened, you couldn't ask for a better job. I would no doubt still be working here if things had not went downhill.

I loved working at Sunset and felt they do want the best for their residents. The only thing was even if you do a great job and have great reveiws there is no advancement. If you start on a 2nd shift job you can plan on staying there until you retire.
IV/LPN Night Shift Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Frontenac, KS – June 17, 2014
Employers and peer staff all exceptional and helpful Patient care #1. The hardest part of the job, at first, was remembering pt. and staff names.. The most enjoyable part, as always, is the love and laughter that geriatric patients give and receive.
Health Care Aide (Current Employee) – Innisfail, AB – March 28, 2014
Each day is met with a smile. All my co-workers are very dedicated but most lack compassion. I learn from my residents every day whether it be personal or medical. But I get upset when I hear them tell me stories or being rushed or forced to do things. When complaints are reported nothing gets done. I just keep apologizing to them about my co-workers professionalism. The most enjoyable part of my job is to see the Residents smile or laugh. If I can make them feel loved and cared for them I feel I have done my job. It is about them. Making them feel important and wanted. And not treat it like it is 'Just a J.O.B'.
Cook (Former Employee) – 129 E. Clay St. Irene, South Dakota. 57037 – August 24, 2013
go in and start cooking breakfast. get supplies ready for the day. prepare meals, and salads and desserts. check production sheets to get ready for next shift. learned how to be more organized.The employees are great and friendly. Hardest part of the job was learning everyones names, likes and dislikes.Best part was seeing the smiles when they enjoyed their meal.
Assessment of residents and reporting findings to doctors. Management was approachable and pleasant to work with. The hardest part of being a nurse is when you lose a resident even though you have done everything in their behalf. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing I have been a blessing to my residents.
Great place to work .lots of fun and wonderful job..

My day starts at 6:00 a.m. We get everybody up and out to breakfast by 7:30. After breakfast we help those that need it with everyday living things. 11:30 is dinner time and we assist those that need help serving themselves. We lay quite a few residents down for an afternoon rest and my day ends at 2:00 p.m.
