Toxic work environment
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON19 February 2014
-Orientation was almost non existent. Staff too over worked to really orientate new staff. When I asked for more orientation, I was told I would receive it, but never did.
-My pay was never correct, except when union got involved.
-Overall negative attitude from staff, they are overworked and fed up.
-Backbiting among staff.
-Some staff and administration would complain about the residents' families who were not happy with the care, and most of the time, the families did have legitimate concerns.
-Witnessed an RN, who had been there for over a year, be brought to tears by the 'bullying' attitude of the ADOC.
-Registered staff were never able to take the breaks they are allowed, if they did, they would never get work done.
-If nurses had to stay late for a reason beyond their control, and put in for overtime, they would never get it, unless they contacted the union rep.
-Most staff want to give the best care, but the time constraints make this impossible.
-One of the WORST PLACES I have ever worked.
I enjoyed working with the residents and their families.
No support from bosses.

Not Good
Director of care (Former Employee) –  Calgary20 July 2016
When Diversicare took over as contract manager, morale went really low.

Very obvious that this contractor management is looking out for their own jobs. It's now all about the money. They cut programs and raised the rent. Now they are at less than 85% vacancy. Shame, prince of peace was a wonderful work environment. Senior leaders (including myself) have All quit.
Frontline staff are awesome
Cut wages, benefits Etc.

Regional management ruining a great community
Management (Current Employee) –  Calgary alberta3 July 2015
After a lengthy period of employment, the residence started seeing a huge shift in management... From the GM to the office manager... Both whom were fantastic. The entire residence suffered and it was at the hands of one power tripping regional manager who thinks she is playing a clever chess game... In fact it is a Russian roulette game! The staff and residents are suffering.
It is sad to see a great facility go down and join the competition where they will have to pull out all stops to get new residents... Where as before, new potential residents would sign up during their first tour... Very sad.... I would love to see the staff survey and resident satisfaction survey results... They must have gone down at least 30% since January!!!
Great staff
Reginal management is looking out for their career only
