Ware has gone through a lot of administration changes for over a year now. I live 45 minutes away from work and would like something closer.
Pros
I received great experience on all nursing skills.

Dietary Aide (Current Employee) –  Oxford, PAJanuary 27, 2015
One of the best things about employment at Ware is the amount of work that each day entails. Always having problems to solve, errands to run and people to facilitate makes the work day fly by and by days end, a feeling of a job well done is liable to overcome any good employee.
During meal times a dietary aide is expected to create meals for residents, serve the meals and assist in eating and personal preparation of food (cutting meat, thickening liquids, giving first aid when needed). During non-dining hours, the day consists of managing and dispersing dietary items to the nursing staff in the various wards of the community. The bulk of our responsibilities stem from interacting with the residents, taking the time to talk with them and figure out what they need in order to feel satisfied and comfortable. Cultivating a relationship with each resident is an important step in doing the job well and knowing the community that we serve. The nursing staff depends on the dining crew to convey information concerning the eating habits of various residents and to recommend what kind of diet and food items the resident or nurse may want to pursue.
This is a large facility with around 300 residents yet the ratio of staff to residents is a bit skewed. There should be more staff members on the floor at all times in able to accommodate our growing community. Because of this shortage, many workers who have been here a long time start to feel resentful and seem to be unwilling to change their work habits and pick up new responsibilities. Many of my co-workers are afflicted with this work ethic
  more... and do not share the same enthusiasm for the job as others (including myself). This creates an uneven work load in which a few select employees end up doing the majority of the work while others are content to simply coast through their responsibilities (often relying on others to pick up the slack.)
This lackadaisical work ethic is toxic in an environment that is operating twenty-four hours a day yet there are employees at Ware that help to make up for the gap created by some of the less enthusiastic staff members. But, if you are a worker who thrives on being busy and expanding their work duties (like myself), Ware is the kind of place that can teach many new skills to those who are ready to learn. Overall, the interactions with the residents and the nursing staff (many of whom consistently impress with their knowledge and breadth of their compassion) make for an overall rewarding work experience.

Pros
interacting with residents from all walks of life, decent food always available at little or no cost, lots of overtime available.
Cons
unenthusiastic work staff, cleanliness needs to become a bigger priority, administration that doesn't have a firm grasp of how the community operates

Rewarding place to work
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) –  Oxford, PAMarch 25, 2014
A typical day at work included meal services to the residents who called Ware Presbyterian Village their home. I was responsible for maintaining a healthy productive relationship with these residents and making sure that they looked forward to coming in for their meal. The hardest part of this job is the reality that some residents will pass away, and the most enjoyable part is the rewarding feeling you get from knowing you helped brighten someone's day.
Pros
always room for overtime
Cons
unreliable co-workers

Management not very considerate of employees working long hours with short staff knowing that this is why mistakes happen. I learned alot at Ware and enjoyed working with the team on my unit. Hardest part of job was working 8 to 10 hours straight with team leaders from other carts being able to sit, laugh and joke while sitting around the nursing desk. Most enjoyabe part of job was being with the residents and enjoying being able to see their smiles and apprecition.
Pros
good enviroment and setting
Cons
most management making comments about people working when they think they should retire
