HCA in Nanaimo, BC
on 20 September 2021
Good
Not all the staff members were co-operative at all, Has had to deal with so annoying co-workers. In the beginning, you are totally made feel that you are new there and they are the bosses of the floors, Even staff does a lot of gossiping and back-biting ,which is totally unprofessional. So, think before you apply there.

Pretty good balance
I have worked a variety of places as a HCA over a couple of decades. Resident ratios are generally pretty good here. Management is fairly approachable. Most of the coworkers are friendly and helpful. This is by far the best place I’ve worked. However the same problems face Avenair as most companies: short staff, toxic workers don’t have repercussions and never enough time to do all the other tasks( kitchen duties, stocking of rooms etc). But over all it is a great place to work.

Great place but understaffed
The workers here are taxed. The establishment is sorely understaffed. The workload doesn’t allow for a break. They kept the same staffing levels as when there were far less residents, therefore their occupancy level is no longer being met with relative staffing.

Wouldn't recommend
This would be a good start if you are a new grad, but if you have been a care aide in the industry for many years I would not recommend this place. There are no ceiling lifts in the rooms, the rooms have carpet which makes it hard to push the lifts around the room, and you barely have enough supplies to properly provide for the residents. Not to mention it's next to impossible to actually get vacation time off, and if you do happen to get approved for vacation you're made to feel guilty for taking the time off. The management team is notorious for belittling there staff and only getting staff "who go above and beyond" a Christmas gift card for Christmas
HCA in Nanaimo, BC

Stressful and Understaffed
During my time at Avenir, the staff, especially the HCAs where unprofessional and not trained properly to deal with dementia clients. The floors where constantly understaffed, both LPNs and HCAs, leaving the clients in their soiled briefs for long periods of time, causing skin problems and constant UTIs. The rooms are not client friendly, especially for the clients that needed lifts, the bathrooms are too small and the showers are slipping hazards. The HCAs don’t follow safety precautions, for example they don’t gown up while in isolation rooms, the best that they will do is glove up.
