Hard to keep up with changes all the time, some staff hard to work with. Lots of shifts and work to do it’s an old building that needs lots of repairs all the time

This place is hanging on by a thread.

What is the best part of working at the company?Plenty of shifts because there is never any permanent staff What is the most stressful part about working at the company?No support from management when you have a concern What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Toxic! It’s like being back in high school with all the cliques. Ridiculous for a workplace

Not a place to succeed

Short staffed, or staffed with new grads that are inexperienced and unsafe. Management does not engage with staff or residents. The home does not have a generator or central air, the power goes off frequently leaving everyone in the dark and either cold or hot, depending on the season. There is not enough linen or supplies. There are no activities for the residents. Constant roll over of management and staff. The building is very old, shower floor leaks, minimal housekeepers and no security.Look for other long term care homes if you want to keep your nursing license.

Old building

Quite an old building. On first impression it gives off the vibe of someplace that won't be around for much longer. Constantly short staffed. Residents can be demanding. Coworkers ok in general, just not enough of them to make the shift run smooth.

Management was extremely unorganized, patients were neglected and totally disregarded. Most co-workers were extremely nice but there were enough that weren't to make days harder than they needed to be. The best part of the job was the residents and getting to know them but it was hard to go home in tears every day.

Co-worker, job, pay, place of work

Gossip non-stop..people are always criticizing behind your back. No matter how much you clean it's always dirty. Pay is minimum. Place sucks. Pathetic.


The residents are friendly


The place needs MAJOR RENOVATION.

Truly a small home with a big heart and great staff

Under new management who has been working to collectively boost morale as well as fix up the home environment while providing excellent care. The staff is excellent and committed to providing good service. A happy home and a great place to work. Home's physicians are amazing and work WITH the staff in order to meet resident's needs


staff who go above and beyond

Let be honest

Years ago wonderful place to be now turn around go some where else. Always short staffed, always short for items for staff to do their job ( linen) rules don't only apply to some people. Some people are down the hall doing their work while others stand at the desk reading the newspaper.the front line staff never gets appreciated. Money for Christmas party was kept by Manger and staff recited nothing not even a card.. residents not treated very nice by some people and everyone else looks the other way. Please if your looking to place family there or looking for a job please look else where

Good experience, met lots of great people. The pay was good, and hours were plenty if I wanted them. Most of the nurses were excellent and did their job well.


Free gatorade on hot days.


Shifts were only 3 hours long

Great workplace, friendly, lots of shifts for workers, home with a heart

Staff are able to provide 1-1 care and build positive relationships with residents. Staff all work as a team. Take the time to get to know residents and there stories. Relaxed atmosphere for residents and variety of recreational activities cater to different population groups.


Small facility family atmosphere, kind hearted workers.


Older building

Poor morale and management

Long term care facility with poor standards for residents and staff. Shifts are always short staffed and morale is very low. Poor to non existent training.

Staff committed to provision of excellent care

Fast paced, challenging career choice. Emphasis on time management, critical thinking and organization. Staff (registered and unregulated) give 110% in an effort to meet and exceed management, resident and family members expectations. The most enjoyable part of the job finding a few minutes to connect personally with a resident...they often given so much more then they take!


Personalized resident care


Not enough time to connect with residents and their families
