Decent place to work if you don't mind mediocre management.
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Forsyth, IL – March 5, 2018
Hickory Point Christian Village is a very good place for residents and guests. There is a fulfilling workplace culture. There is teamwork and competitive pay. However, there is a lack of opportunities for advancement amd management tends to play favorites.
Assistant Housekeeping Supervisor (Current Employee) – Forsyth, IL – May 11, 2018
I manage the housekeeping and laundry staff. I order all the supplies for the department and fill positions when they are short on the floor. Love talking with the residents. The hardest part of the job is when you are very busy, other than that it is a great place to work.
Certified Nurse's Assistant (Former Employee) – Forsyth, IL 62535 – December 31, 2017
This place is a disgrace and a plague on the name of every nurse, cna, or anyone who has ever worked there. They have no regards for human life, only thinking about how to line their own pockets. HORRIBLE!

I have been employed here for 2 years. I can say there is always available hours to work. The turn over rate is very high, I enjoy my guest and how clean it is here. Manages are friendly and the shift pay for working eveningso and on the weekends are nice

Only thing that's good about this job is our guests and I'm comfortable otherwise I wouldn't recommend and animal to come work there that's how terrible this place is they don't give you a decent raise they show favorites with coworkers always short staff because they can't keep no workers and the ones they got they don't appreciate them Hickory point you need to show your workers you appreciate maybe your turn over wouldn't be so bad.
administration lacks understanding of what real hard work is
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Forsyth, IL – July 5, 2016
Administration focuses on money and admissions rather than employee satisfaction. Many ideas and promises that are never fulfilled. Staff is underappreciated. Lacks benefits. There is teamwork with employees but only see most management when corporate and public health are in building. Beautiful building but poor administration.
learning experience for new to health care employees

A very busy work environment. Enjoyed working with geriatric patients. Have been introduced to many more medications . The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the patients get better with rehab and be able to go home and take care of themselves.At times were short nurses made it hard to give quality care to patients.
Computer knowledge, working with geriatric patients.
Social Service Assistant (Current Employee) – Forsyth, IL – March 8, 2015
I am responsible for admissions, so I mostly complete contracts upon admission, I do assessments and one on one with guest. I help out with activities from time and time. I also help transport guest to and from doctor appointments. I am also responsible for completing discharges and setting up transportation for our guest. I mostly enjoy the one on one contact with the guest and helping them in anyway I can. I love my job and the work environment is amazing.
5 star rating, HPCV is an excellent place to work. Maintaining and using nursing skills is critical and used daily. Fast pace work environment.
LPN (Current Employee) – Forsyth, IL – February 20, 2015
Nursing skills are a must at HPCV. Learning, maintaining and teaching clinical decisions for patient care. This facility is very tedious with detail and extremely fast pace. Assessment is key to the patients care and maintaining the right treatment and medication regime. Admissions and discharges several times a week.
PTO days/insurance available. Helpful co-workers, job security. Good pay.
No pension/401K available, no room for growth to a managment position from the floor nurse position.
Certified Nurses Assistant (Former Employee) – Forsyth, IL – January 13, 2015
I worked for this company for almost a year. A typical day at work was ok. I would come to work, receive report from previous shift, and fill out a shift sheet, which was a sheet that told you what rooms you had, and it also had a place to write your vital signs, and a place to write any notes from report, or during your shift. You would then go and get vital signs for your group of people along with breakfast orders and dinner orders. After you had gotten your vital signs, you would show them to the nurse who would either ok them or ask you to redo them, then chart them in the computer. I learned that not everyone wants a job, but they want a paycheck. I also learned that not every where you go there is team work. Management was not so hot, and was poorly ran. Co workers overall where good. Most would help if you asked for help. The hardest part of the job was not having the correct amount of supplies or working supplies. The vital machines where always broken, the lifts were usually always dead, and there weren't many supplies to take care of your people. But the most enjoyable part of my job was coming to work to help different type of people.
Meeting different type of people, taking care of different type of people, friendships, and relationships with family members and their loved ones.
