Great co-workers and everyone cares about the clients and their families
This company is more flexible to work for than the Health Authority. I don't have to put my holiday requests in 6 months in advance which is really nice. If I have a problem, I can usually speak to a manager about it immediately and they seem to do their best to solve my concern or questions. The best thing though is my co-workers, they are easy to get along with and they really seem to know why they are there and care about the clients.A typical day is reviewing the 24 hour report, finding out current client status, then I complete assessments, medication administration, wound care, updating care plans etc.The hardest part of the job is the palliative care, the most enjoyable part of the job is making a difference and making the clients happy. I have learned quite a bit from the RNs and the other nurses, lots of them have many years of experience in various settings so quite knowledgeable
Recreation Aide in Richmond, BC
Everyone is very supportive and caring to one another
I can easily go to management and know that they will support me no matter what. They are very understanding and if I have a concern, we will come up with a conclusion together. The care staff are extremely friendly and have helped me adjust when I first started. It was a very enjoyable experience working with the residents, and alongside my colleagues.
No job security
Terrible workplace culture. The employees live in fear that any mistake made will be the one that gets them fired. And, they're not wrong. Management fires employees instead of working through mistakes and gives reasons for the termination that don't stand up to basic questions.Very clique-based socializing. If you don't fit with the "in" group, you're out.Building is also old and some of the floors are starting to become slanted.
Worse place i have been a care aide at in 13 years
co workers are great however the management bullies her employees and the higher up owners let her get away with it. They support her being a bully. Don't work there. You will end up depressed and suicidal
