Past employee (Former Employee) – Winamac, IN – January 30, 2017
Upper management is overworked and everything is backwards. The most rewarding part of the job is working with the clients. Not enough training for the employees and most of the clients are retirement age and some really need to be in a nursing home and not a group home. They will hire just about anyone so half the time other employees are a risk in the home and no help.
