Registered Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Parry Sound, ON – 25 April 2017
Worked here in 2013. Enjoyed working here. Great DRC and staff. Learned a lot here and met a lot of great health care workers. Hardest part was leaving. If I had to choose a LTC home for my loved ones to go to I would pick Lakeland first.
Recreational Therapy Student (Former Employee) – Parry Sound, ON – 16 November 2015
I enjoyed working there as a recreation student. The atmosphere was very welcoming and I enjoyed what I was doing. The grounds were well maintained and the staff would go above and beyond for their residents.
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Parry Sound, ON – 26 December 2013
A typical day at work would include dispensing medications, wound care, tube feedings, documentation, and much more. I learned professionalism, how to manage Health care aids, and documentation. Management was very good for assisting in the learning process, and being available if one had questions. My co-workers were as well very available for assistance when needed. Hardest part of the job was learning to fit in with the workplace culture, as each workplace is different. The most enjoyable part of the job was the residents in which I cared for, and seeing the difference I made in their lives.
Workplace interested in keeping staff happy so they would want to continue working there.
