Great Starting Job
Activity Directors Assistant (Former Employee) –  Marmora, ON17 January 2019
I learned so much from this company and am looking to further my learning and expand!
During school they were able to work around my schedule, and during the summer I worked full time hours!

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

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

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.

Okay place to work
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Lindsay, ON13 March 2018
Caressant Care is an okay place to work. The wage is good, but there is a lot of things a staff member has to endure while working there. Very cliquey. A lot of disconnect between management and staff.

Great job security with excellent benefits and very flexible
Housekeeper (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON9 January 2018
While working at the retirement home I found the job quite easy to learn and not to mention the job is unionized so once you pass the 3 month probation period you are safe in terms of your position and pay. Has yearly raises and often held fun employee activities.
Pros
Great Work environment and excellent experience
Cons
Early mornings

Management don’t follow ministry guidelines
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Lindsay, ON7 January 2018
No support, incomplete assessments and very little effort to follow the ministry’s guidelines! Corporate ignores issues and sweeps them under the rug. Negative work environment due to lack of support! Residents are clearly NOT a priority with corporate or management!
Pros
Clients
Cons
To much to list
