Friendly Staff, Clean and a Quiet Workplace
Elderly Assistant (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON30 November 2018
I should start this by stating that I was only a volunteer here and not a paid worker, so my review may not be the best of references. I volunteered for church services and worked with the residents in the care units rather than the residents living independently in the apartments/homes.

I only worked weekends but I loved working with the residents and staff there, no staff member had anything nasty to say to you and were nothing but friendly. If a resident was being belligerent they were quick to step in. It was managed well, I was independent and working on my own for my entire time there which I loved. After you learned the job they trusted you to do it and I enjoyed that trust.

There only thing I found difficult had nothing to do with the home itself. Naturally it is a retirement home, some of the elderly people there are very sick and confused, therefore sometimes they got frustrated and angry with you for little reason, but it came with the territory. The positives far outweighed that one negative, I enjoyed coming in every weekend.
