Assistant Administrator (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – April 12, 2014
This was a wonderful opportunity for me. It was very challenging as I was responsible for each and every thing in the building as the Administrator was not on sight. I came in to the job during a time that the company was facing some big struggles. On a typical day I oversaw the entire medical responsibilities, ensured that 35 elderly residents were given proper nutrition, medical care, and treated ethically. I collected rent, negotiated contracts with various vendors, supervised medical, kitchen, and maintenance staff, fielded complaints to the proper department or solved myself. It was not unusual for me to begin my day at 3am so that I could check in on and supervise the night shift staff.

Windsor Manor is a great place to live as a resident or work as an employee! The staff are all VERY friendly and willing to go the extra mile for anyone! It is a work environment like I have never seen before! Management makes it a point to appreciate all the hard work the employees do as well as have a party or get-together once a month for the residents! I highly recommend becoming a member of the Windsor Manor family if you have the chance to!!
while training at Windsor Manor, my typical day pertained mainly to helping those that could not help themselves by providing overall assistance and for those who could do for themselves it was my job to help the patient maintain a level of independence. My co-workers and I got along great simply because we all worked as a team,. I have learned to treat others with respect and dignity. The hardest part of the job to me would be getting close to patients and having unfortunate situations happen that no longer allows for the patient to be around. The most enjoyable part of the job is making the patient feel good about them selves just by providing the basic care and hygiene that one needs on a daily basis.

I would take care of residents. Making sure they had their medication, and that daily hygiene was done. At times it could be a stressful job if everyone did not do their work leaving others to pick up the slack. Changes in employees and management have changed since.

I loved the residents and the people I worked with, but the management was rediculous. I worked there for at least 6 months with the second manager and she couldn't even remember my name or the names of the residents.
one free meal per 8 hour shift, taking care of amazing people
