Enjoy every day of work. Love the residents and independent clients; like the people I work alongside; have respect for the supervision and management.
Fortunate to have working experience at more than one village, and found both to be valuable. Would recommend workplace to any and all.
A bit of blaming for situations that are within our control to resolve with creative input. Some expectation that others(team mates, management, ect) will solve problems or situations for us.
Best of all, the freedom to work "outside the box" , and forward thinking and planning for the health industry.
Cons: the union. Not in favor. Seniority trumps good workers. The Union promotes ease and comfort: kind of like a long marriage, once you have it, you let it slide and don't work hard at it any longer.
Pros: Education experiences. All employees are encouraged to complete education modules and in-services and workshops provided by Golden Life Management, not just the nursing staff. We all work for the people we serve, and our company recognizes this, which is why we all receive education opportunities.
I feel safe to provide feedback for this employer, whereas with other health employers, I do not feel safe to provide input and feedback. I believe my feedback would be viewed and heard, not penalized.
Golden Rule: we are there for the clients, the residents, and their families
Team work and the Union
