Continuing Care Assistant in Halifax, NS

It was difficult in terms of safe staff to patient ratio numbers. Stress of the workload. However it was a good environment. Teamwork and residents and staff were great to work with.

Fast-paced working environment
too much workload most of the time with not enough staff to cover, always short. for new worker they will put you on heavy floor with Insufficient orientation / education. Hard to get a vacation leave but staff members are supportive.

Good location and hours.
Large nonprofit organization with plenty of on site clients and personal of varying backgrounds. Multiple sites and locations means you'll need to be mobile and able to adjust on the fly.
Cca in Bedford, NS
on 7 February 2020
Horrible place to work
Northwood in Bedford “ ivany “ is ran like a business rather a care facility.they treat the CCA’s like dogs . The CCA’s at Northwood have the hardest front line jobs there .the facility is constantly running on a skeleton crew overworking their staff. The residents are left to sit in their rooms or infront of a tv the CCAs are over worked and left to deal with situations on their own on top of everything else they are required to do as the management always seems to be disinterested in the goings on in the building I do not recommend working their let alone leaving your loved one in their hands
