The team is great but there is only so much one person can do. Due to corporate, only one aide and nurse are allowed for each shift. On top of resident care the aide and nurse are responsible for washing, drying, and putting away/hanging laundry, washing and putting away dishes, carrying out meals, bussing tables, resetting table linens and silverware, sweeping and mopping the dining room and kitchen, cleaning bathrooms, answering the phone, etc.
The pay is low for the area. There are also residents who are being pulled from nursing homes that should not be in assisted living. Corporate is worried about numbers and not proper staffing to care for the residents.
Low pay, improperly staffed, no room for advancement
