Unprofessional and unsupportive

The environment is very unprofessional. The staff and leadership are not supportive of one another. Would not recommend this negative work environment.

Overall a great starter place

This facility is a great stepping stone. The bonuses were great. Hours are always available. Residents were amazing. However, the work load is very heavy, after a few years they will cap your pay, and you need to have a back bone. After awhile the bonuses weren't worth it because I was always leaving with back pain and angry. Like anywhere else staffing becomes a issue.

A typical day as a CNA here is breaking your back because the patient to staff ratio is awful, management CONSTANTLY makes you stay past your scheduled leave time and makes you work 16hr shifts every other day because they refuse to come up with a rotating on call schedule or give their employees raises and the nurses do not help at all. THE CNAS NEED RAISES

Mangers don’t really help when floor is under staffed. They don’t accommodate well with work-home life. Some management started as a CNA and have forgotten where they started and could use a reminder.

Very toxic and counterproductive

What is the best part of working at the company?Resident to staff ratio was generally low.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Zero communication between floor staff and management, substandard care from a lot of the staff was deemed acceptable, several CNAs were caught doing fireable offenses but only got verbal warnings (i.e. HIPAA violations, smoking/vaping in resident rooms and other places in facility, theft, verbal abuse of residents, neglect of residents, etc), hostile work environment.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?It was okay at first, but as time went on, it became toxic. I worried about the safety of my residents a lot. I think the company itself tried to create a good environment, but management was so out of touch with what went on out on the floor. Definitely a broken system that could’ve been fixed to make an amazing environment for both residents and staff.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Staff to resident ratio was generally good, usually maximum of 11:1. You were lucky to find someone from from the previous shift to give you any type of report, so most days, you went in blind. Most nurses wouldn’t lift a finger to help you, and if you dared to ask them (and interrupted them playing on their phones), they’d get ticked off and yell at you. Like, literally yell. Most of the time, you couldn’t even find your fellow CNAs, so you ended up doing two person transfers, Hoyers, sit-to-stands, by yourself.

Life care gave me an opportunity & it changed my life. I was one of few candidates chosen to receive my license through the company’s CNA program. With great support from the educator Mrs. Claire at the time. We passed our exams and got to work full time for the company. During my time there I was given lots of support to be well equipped to do my role. The administration was great and had an open door policy. They will work with you in my experience especially if you communicate and that’s ideal for an employee.

Family Environment

Life Care was a great place to work. They provided a positive structure for staff to feel secure and well trained in their positions. Often felt like a family, a true team. There were demands and pressures in the business office but this is normal and necessary in that world. Would recommend.

Terrible management

Not supported. Always short staffed. Pay OK. Residents were rude, and so were family members. Very clicky staff. Do not help the new team members. Very high turn over rate. I would never work for them again. Other life cares were good. Not this one. Run, don't walk away from this place. Terrible

Great atmosphere

Staffing is a difficult job, especially in nursing. The amount of support from the leadership team was amazing. I never felt alone when it came to shift coverage, recruitment, and scheduling. I could manage the job on my own, but knew they were there if I needed them with no hesitation.

Rude attitude and drama

Many of the people there tend to have bad attitudes or like to talk bad about new hires and drive people away. A lot of CNA are lazy and would rather sit and sleep than answer a call light.

Was an okay place to work, they paid me fairly but they didn't have much work for me to do, so I just sat in person for a lot of the time. This is good and bad, I guess depending on person.

Interesting fast paced cafeteria.

Prep Cook job keeps you busy preparing salads, desserts, bread, sides for 140 people. Enjoyed the work and the manager at the time.Be ready to stand on your feet for 8 hours.There are additional jobs of delivering water and snack to 4 different areas. All on one floor and easy to get to.Have a Good Attitude and carry on and you'll be fine.Fair compensation.


Free Meals and Some Fun Coworkers


Difficult to get everything done in 8 hour day.

Tiring Nursing Home Corporation

The residents make the job worth it and the pay improved. However, there are many days where nurses and CNAs are understaffed and overworked. Super hard and can be super tiring. The management was not nice, organized or caring. Very corporate oriented and can feel like staff gets ignored.

nice facility

Nice facility but staffing is what made me leave. Co workers were helpful at times. CNA/s were burnt out leaving more work for nursing staff. If staffing was better I would have stayed

Super understaffed

Super understaffed, but that’s the usual in nursing homes. Rotating door of staff. A lot of the other CNAs and are easy to get along with and willing to help but it’s hard when everyone is being overworked


Flexible hours


Short staffed
