Cook (Former Employee) – Wayland, MI – July 10, 2018
A day would include food prep, serving out the food, and clean up. There were allot of issues with people not showing up and not covering their shifts. There were times when there would be main ingredients missing. Lack of organization, and cleanliness. Poorly managed, refused to give benefits after the first year of employment.

Assisting residents of a LTC facility (Current Employee) – Wayland, MI – May 24, 2013
I enjoy working for the Laurels very much. I have built relationships with both co-workers and residents alike. The management staff is pretty open and easy to communicate with and take an interest in their employees. A typical day there would be assisting the residents with their daily care whether it be dressing, bathing, feeding or just simply watching over them and offering cues to complete a task. I have been a CNA for 20 years and it is a tough job especially when dealing with deaths but I find the good far out weigh the bad. What I enjoy most is the smiles I get from my residents, their thanks for helping them an djust knowing I made a difference in their day.

CNA (Former Employee) – Wayland, MI – January 26, 2015
The employees are under staffed, over worked. Don't care about employees or residents. They do not give new hires proper training. I would not recommend working for this company, or sending a loved one to live here.
Learned to work with different kinds of disabilities and diseases, enjoyed taking time out to talk to residents as I did my job. Had many wonderful co-workers, learned from them as I taught them things, too.
assisting residents (Current Employee) – Wayland, MI – July 30, 2015
I like what I do. I typically go in on third shift. I am required to do all laundry and a cleaning list nightly. Each night we have a list of resident showers to be done. I also answer call lights and assist residents with any needs.
