Very unsafe workplace
Care Aide (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON14 January 2019
I worked here a few years ago and the job left me injured. When I went to the hospital I was informed that many of my co-workers have had to go for workplace injury and exhaustion. My injury put my nursing career on hold while I recover.

Much needed improvement.
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Floor26 May 2017
Residents and coworkers are generally lovely. Management has lots of room for improvement, however; shifts that are known to be short weeks in advance are left short until the day of. Schedule is always changed/shifts always added to your shedule on very short notice with zero communication. Constantly understaffed and overworked and staff is underpaid. Corners are cut and pennies are pinched to a fault here. Two reviews before this one sound like they may have been written by management.
Pros
Residents
Cons
Poor management.
