Support services (Current Employee) – Viking, AB – November 11, 2015
Absolutely loved working with the residents. Everyday was always new and different, despite being in the same building with the same staff. I would really enjoy being able to stay in Health Services, I take a lot of pride in helping people that are in need. Just to sit with a resident and have a cup of tea to make thier whole day. I still casually pick up shifts here.

Typical day at work : Ensure safety of the elderly Engage residents to challenging activities that stimulates mental function and promotes socialization Serve meals and ensure resident’s safety during meal time Ask residents for their meal of choice the next morning
I have learned to work with hot headed and short tempered elders.
The management is very organize and fair.

The most enjoyable part of the job is to see my residents happy and contented.

Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – July 1, 2015
This type of job roles around "clicks" your either in or your out, as childish as that is and high school it sounds, its the sad truth of these unions, Choose your battles carefully and words especially to the right people. Great pay, not such great hours depending where you sit with seniority
Nursing (Former Employee) – York St sudbury – June 12, 2015
I worked at Extendicare York and had a very poor experience. Management is overworked and takes it out on front line staff at times. Most of the Frontline staff is fantastic except the few bad ones ruin it for everyone. They will bully you and make working there unbearable and management will do nothing. In fact, some will just bully you themselves. Save yourself the stress and don't work there.

The inside and outside environs are very clean and you can see that the staff take pride in the services they offer to these Residents.
The hardest part of my job is losing one of the Residents when you have developed a professional relationship with.
I take each day as a learning experience and go home to reflect on what I have done and whether I made a difference today
