Very poor

Not worth you time of day… management in most areas love you bully you. AND when you happen to get pulled in with HR do NOT expect professionalism they as well like to make sure you know you’re just a number and can be replaced. 10 years I wasted trying to find a good spot to work, spent 7 years with one site then was bullied by managers till I left. Now have 3 mental health diagnoses PSTD, Anxiety are the two of the most difficult ones to deal with.


Absolutely NOTHING

Professional and pleasant place to work

Work with residents. Getting them up from bed in the morning. Helping feed breakfast, lunch and dinner if they need assistance. Then in evening put residents to bed after snack time. get everyone comfortable before filing paperwork for end of day and giving report to nurses.

Productive workplace

A typical day at work is basically caring for the elderly, who can no longer care for themselves. We toilet them throughout the shift, its a very heavy job. At the end of the day we do our report and do our work sheets.


Spend time with people

Depending on what floor your working on it can be very busy . Always a laugh so great of u have a sense of humour

I very happy to be working within northern health. You get and learn the concept on How fast life can end .. but working with the elderly is very rewarding as you feel accomplished as you helped ppl that could not help themselves


Getting to know different ppl and culture


Short staffed
