My work is challenging, rewarding but stressful at times.
Associate Director of Care (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 18 February 2015
My typical day at work consist of ensuring that nursing department is running smoothly and efficiently. I am learning new things almost everyday from our residents, colleagues, and family members. It's a pleasure to work with our management team and staffs alike. The most enjoyable part of my job is spending time and getting hugs from our residents and family members- not all the time though.
Registered Practical Nurse- Dementia Unit (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 September 2014
a typical day being in a dementia unit is filled with behavioral issues but usually if the resident is used to you and you know hoe to approach them it turns out fine. i learned a lot with dealing with a demented person, the progress and management of their disease. my co workers and i work as a team in our unit. hardest part is emotionally when there are residents who are unable to deliver their wishes and the staff could not provide it. i enjoy the company of the residents and their family. as I have said at the end of the day we are like family just being there side by side for their love ones.

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 16 January 2014
All the staff and management were very patient and helpful, having the confidence that I would work well and gain the experience needed to fulfill my responsibilities of RN. When I had questions, there was always someone I could call for help and turn to, to get the answers I needed and to learn a certain process. There were many in-services, and I enjoyed attending every one of them because I knew it would improve my professional development and my ability to provide excellent quality care. Although I would be busy every single shift, and could not predict what was to come, I enjoyed spending it with residents and staff and just working together. The sense of teamwork and being able to provide patient-centered care is what continues to drive me till this day.
