Teaching and warm environment
fulfilling, helping clients with daily needs, trouble shooting, addressing concerns, advocating for the clients, everyday is a learning experience, management is supportive with guidance and resources. There is team work, respect and we value each other. Not been able to spend as much time with our clients as much as they deserve is the hardest part of the job. Making a positive difference in the client's life by being supportive and providing the best care to client is the most enjoyable part of the job
Pros
Having flexible and accommodating managers
Cons
burnout

Excellent company, terrible middle management
Collaborative workplace with supportive multidisciplinary team during daytime hours. Excellent high quality facility with on site restaurant quality food for reasonable prices.

High stress environment due to conflicting priorities in workload and new worksite. A lot of staff turnover in a short time resulted in excessive mandatory overtime (worked 50+ hours a week when my position was a 0.7FTE) with next to no notice, was overworked, resulted in becoming ill, and then was refused sick leave. Was forced to take on multiple roles outside of my scope of practice while sick in a healthcare facility. Direct supervisor was always busy, unwilling to be flexible and was less than supportive.
Pros
On site restaurant, normal schedule suggests good work life balance, high quality facility, reasonable staffing ratios, collaborative multidisciplinary team
Cons
Mandatory short notice overtime, unsupportive overwhelmed middle management

Caring and Kind
The elderly are the highlight of this job. Working in a senior's home means you have at least ten new grandparents.
The staff all love the citizens and love to share it.

Good company
This not-for-profit, charitable, senior's residence operator has relatively stable revenue sources and well established policies and processes. It's a good company to work with.
