Weak management, lazy management
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) –  St. Thomas, ON20 April 2019
The fire at Bonnie Place took an already broken place further into the abyss, very disorganized, care for the residents lacking, stealing and deception are the mindset for this place.
Do not leave your loved one here!
Pros
The residents

Shellfish and directionless management

I learned so much from this company and am looking to further my learning and expand!

It's LTC, what can I say?
Nurse (Current Employee) –  Woodstock, ON7 January 2019
The hardest part of the day is not being able to spend quality time with the residents, due to the unreasonable work load for both registered and non-registered staff. The in-house managers are friendly, knowledgeable and care about the well-being of the staff, however H.O. is a different story.
This LTC home is no different than any other....the same staffing issues, the same unreasonable demands and the same funding issues.
The only way to change the LTC environment is to get the government on board with increased funding for staffing and supplies and make them realize that their demands are unrealistic.
I dare any government official to walk a day in the shoes of a LTC worker and come out the same as they went in.

demeaning place to work. staff allowed to be abused by residents.
psw (Former Employee) –  lindsay29 December 2018
Wouldn't allow an animal to stay there. Management hides in their offices until 4pm and then they're gone. Familes are demanding of the staff who have zero time for basic care never mind above and beyond.
Pros
none
Cons
too many

Dysfunctional, gossipy, all staff not following rules and regulations
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Lindsay, ON9 November 2018
All staff including management do not follow the rules and regulations. One rule broken repeatedly on a daily basis violates fire regulations. Cell phones are openly used by staff when it's clearly not permitted.Training was barely existent at best and the trainer went on for hours during training about their personal conflicts with the company. The majority of information needed for the position was not provided during that small window was not all provided. Not all information was in the job manual. The staff were gossipy and cut throat. The management, especially top executives, are power trippers and totally disconnected with union staff. Simply implementing additional computer programs would organize a majority of work making for much less unnecessary paperwork. Outside visitors have an impression of it being somewhat a zoo. Completely unprofessional practices. The place looks old and in much need of a good overhaul. I certainly wouldn't want my loved one in a place like that. The main wing looks crowded and unkempt.
Pros
Dont really see any
Cons
Many

Activities Coordinator Assistant Co-Op (Former Employee) –  Lindsay, ON6 November 2018
My time at Caressant care was memorable by far. Lots of opportunities to learn new skills and step out of your comfort zone. I learned a large lump sum of knowledge from my co-op placement. The staff and residents made every day a new experience.

Run away. Dont waste any time here.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON6 November 2018
Rude staff, no work life balance, expected to do the impossible and then they wont even pay you for the hours worked. They lie about everything. You will not have a set job description or set hours.

This place should be shut down. The residents are unhappy. The place is poorly operated.

I recommend do not send your family here.
Pros
None that I am aware of
Cons
Employees are used and abused

Pleasant place to work. Accomodating when it comes to availability
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Courtland, ON29 September 2018
Primarily a regular nursing home position. Consistent shifts, pleasant staff and residents. Most staff are exceptionally trained. Workload, as in most cases with nursing jobs currently, is heavy. Residents are the enjoyable part of the job, as well as the comraderie of staff.
Pros
pleasant staff and residents, staff exceptionally good at their jobs
Cons
unsure

Management is awful especially when you have a serious issue. They have no problem calling you into work all the time but when you need to speak with them, they will completely ignore you.
Pros
no pros
Cons
always getting called in

Productive yet fun.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) –  Lindsay, ON30 August 2018
All jobs have their pros and cons, so unlike any other job Ive had Caressant Care was no different. However It was probably higher up on my list then others because all the pros made the cons worth being at work. The staff were good and the management was great, if there was any sort of issue they were on it. The pros definitely out weighed the cons but on the other hand the cons could be weighing. ex, you get attached to a resident and see them pass. Its definitely not for everyone but it is a good job.
Pros
flexible hours.

Runs for the hills and never look back
Nope not telling (Former Employee) –  Nope not telling20 July 2018
PSW act like they just came out of high school, Nurses act like they are better then you and have snobby looking faces, Management acts like they care but when it comes down to it they do not have your back!! Hours are not stable or dependable, one week you could work one day they next five days. I’ve NEVER have seen a place go threw so many managers and psw! highly stressful environment! As studies state all good employees leave due to bad management/non and negative environment, Its why I left. Over worked every minutes of your day is literally taken up with tasks that is meant for two people. Best part was working with the residents
Pros
If there was some I would of stayed
Cons
Negative Environment / Over worked / no stable hours

stressful environment
Student Dietary Aide (Part-time) (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON28 June 2018
The residence are amazing but co-workers and management will throw you under the bus when ever possible to cover their own butts. No takes responsibility for what they do, they just blame it on other people. It is a very stressful environment especially if they don't like you.

Dedicated and caring staff
INTERNSHIP IN ADMINISTRATION (Former Employee) –  Bourget Ontario2 May 2018
It is very busy, residents make your days interesting. I learned that management has a limited budget to work with, they work hard to provide all necessities for residents on a restricted income. I have met staff and residents that come from all over, it's not only locals that work or reside at Caressant Care Bourget. And everyone is so friendly and welcoming. The hardest part is the emotions we experience with the sickness or the loss of a resident. What I enjoyed the most was seeing how the managers from different departments worked so well together in controlling the day to day issues and keeping everyone happy. Also, love the stories that came with the residents, all the different backgrounds, the different personalities, they managed to put a smile on my face every day!
Pros
Great learning experience
Cons
working with limited budget
