Overall, this job is great! The staff are wonderful and helpful, however the patient to nurse ratios are so unsafe and sometimes changes that are implemented by management are relatively insignificant and attention is not paid to other details
A fun and intuitive place. I find my co workers supportive and willing to share information. Corporate finance office is the best place to work. Your month end task can be challenging, but with a friendly team and managers, you can breeze through it.
It is a difficult place to work in but a great potential for improvement and give a person a chance to shine when improvements are made and the improvements show a significant result that is measurable and contributes to the welfare of the patients
It s very busy there also. They train their staff if required. Very good management people. You need lots of knowledge at your job. I like the work atmosphere. This was another place where I learned new things To carry with me in my personal and work life. Thank you.
Health Care Aide (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 27 April 2017
Typical day start with an early morning providing residents with activities of daily living such as grooming and feeding. I have learned to manage my time effectively and efficiently. Hardest part of the job is when the family is trying to make you do duties that are out of my scope of practice
Home Care Worker (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 26 April 2017
When I start working with them a few years back, working is fun and you can only talk to one person(supervisor), but things change now. Too many scheduling clerk filling up your schedules and they give you too much work from clients to clients without giving you enough time to travel. They do not even consider your opinions.
Health Care Aide (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 28 January 2017
A typical day of work would be driving to a first client's home and completing the tasks requested of me on my schedule in the time given. The driving time is included in the task time. This makes caring for the client and their needs very difficult without rushing them. Then it's off to the next client and their specific needs.
As a Health care provider I need to report different things that occur during my day and are given a number to call which is our scheduling unit. They are not very available to us. We always are put on hold. This makes us very frustrated and possibly late or very likely inaccurate with the information as the time passes.
Some clients either cancel or become ill and go into hospital or pass away. In those cases they fill those spots with other clients or patients from another Health Care Aides schedule who has called in sick or are on holidays. This makes it difficult for clients to trust and become comfortable with new workers.
Overall I do what I do because I love helping people who need assistance. It's selfishly rewarding to me!
Health Care Aide (Nursing Assistant) (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 5 December 2015
Winnipeg Regional Health Authority offers health services for family in needs. One example I worked for was Home Care, I would travel from house to house taking care of patients, elderly, who aren't able to take care of themselves, and would have no one there to look out for them for the time being. Winnipeg Regional Health Authority doesn't discriminate on the type of client that is asking for help. It meets the clients needs and necessities, such as if the client was not very fluent in english, they would offer a worker who is fluent to speak in their language. WRHA doesn't discriminate against sexuality as well, but if the client perfers to have someone with the same gender, WHRA is more than willing to offer a worker for them.
Aboriginal Human Resources Initiative Assistant (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 1 December 2015
My typical work day was busy from morning to the end of everyday. This organization gave me the skills needed to provide information and create an awareness for the Aboriginal community as a a whole. An awareness for career opportunities in population health.
