i worked in the communications department at Extendicare as a contract employee. My manager and co-workers were eager to learn and to help me succeed in my role. Despite the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 virus, our team worked well together and played a significant role in communicating the measures Extendicare has taken to protect its staff and residents. I would highly recommend this organization.
Good co-workers, making a difference, feeling appreciated.
Occasional weekend work.
I would stay far far away from Extendicare and or any of their affiliates as a consumer and as an employee. This is a FOR PROFIT healthcare organization that is KNOWN to cut the quality of care to fatten their wallet. The refuse to allow managers to purchase supplies needed by residents and staff regardless of the importance of the supplies (ie. PPE for COVID19 protection). I have been in healthcare for 20 years and have never had such a bad experience with a company as I have recently with Extendicare, Extendicare Assist, and Paramed. If you love your family member, dont allow these services to provide "care". If you love yourself, look elsewhere for employment.

Working at that company was fun since we got to take care of the seniors which was our main primary. It was nice when they talk about their days when they were younger and how the word use to be at the time. Overall environment was really nice. I enjoyed it.
Co workers doesnot cooperate with newcomers. No training at work and understated other's capabilitie, and obviously most coworkers seems to have a habit of complaining about others to management . No appreciation , no life work balance, never appreciate works.. Worst company i ever worked
They only thing that makes it fun are the residents and family members who always appreciate your hard work. The coworkers are nice.
Underpaid, managers will drive you crazy, no empathy or compassion for employees. No benefits, too much work for little money. Amazing coworkers, stay away from managers! They expect too much for you and never appreciate your hard work. Worst company I ever work for. Managers in the constant fight about who has more power.
Extendicare at west park ltc. New mgt has no heart for all the staffs. No emphathy. They treat u like robot. They dont care about ur well being. They talk to u like they care but they dont.
I love my job .I learned new things every day.management is great.tring to get to munch done but work is always accomplish at the end of the day,enjoyable part of my day is working with my resident and helping them in their daily life.thank you.
A very nice company to work for looking after the welfare of customers and employees. Remarkable management that promotes dignity of workers. Co-workers know how to work as a team and always willing to help each other.
I have worked in many jobs where employers have questionable work ethics and will be hard to enforce fair employee policies especially with no union. This is a huge step-up as I feel secure in doing my work duties safely and that more opportunities of a concrete professional employer-employee relationship with clear policies and standards. Great work ethics and growth can be recognized with the knowledge and application of the employee handbook and company policies. The workplace can always be improved as most workers who have been there for a very long time can be resisting to changes of work flow and system, technology and policies. The resistance of change can dampen the workplace in an archaic and one-dimensional environment. My job entails fast-paced and efficient multi-tasking duties. It is time constrained, must be able to work independently and prioritize daily duties. It can be very stressful but the result/end-of-the-day can be very rewarding as cooking quality food for an older generation while practicing and challenging work ethics can feel immensely gratifying. One big problem being faced now is working full-time hours with no benefits as a casual worker for more than 3 years. Because I work casual I feel overwhelmed when pulling night then morning then double shifts with short notices for months at times. Great money but personal life has suffered. Comes with most jobs these days and this is one them. I have built trust and dependability towards my employers and employees that I feel has not been recognized, as of yet. One of the greatest job opportunities and - plus...
- clear and concise policies that can be effectively applied with knowledge
- growth, and experience seems limited when starting small (bottom of seniority) especially if co-workers, and management doesn't foster new, innovative change; not adaptable
I learned to be more mature while working there and i have become more wiser as well. The people I worked with were friendly and hardworking. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting the elderly there because they always need that sense of comfort. Seeing them smile and laugh made my workplace there good.
I love my job, I get to learn and experience something new every day it makes my job challenging while rewarding in the same time, I have wonderful team mates and a experienced understand manager, knowing every ones need which make the job challenging and meeting new residents by fulfilling there needs makes my job rewarding .
fun work place with supportive team and managment
I work as an office clerk here. This involves dealing with residents, family and friends of residents, medical staff, support staff and administration staff. I meet people from all walks of life here. I have been told by everyone that I am always pleasant, and I always give 100%. in my opinion I am who I am because I work with, and for a great group of individuals. The support we give for the 200 seniors living in our vicinity gives me a sense of achievement when I walk out of the door at the end of my work day.
Every day is different here.
Wish I had more shifts to work here.
-I would show up just after breakfast and be assigned to a certain station in the nursing home kitchen. I would work on it until lunch, serve lunch, take an hour long lunch break, and be assigned to a different task in the afternoon, usually packing to go meals for the community charity "Meals on Wheels". I would take a half hour afternoon break, serve supper, and then get materials ready for the breakfast crew the following day. -I learned how to prepare meals of different texture, how to work with multiple staff members, and how to be a reliable, trustworthy co worker -the hardest part of the job was keeping up with the rhythm of the other co workers, all while making notes (for college, as this was an internship) and learning how everything is done. -the most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the smile on residents faces when they enjoyed their meals, or when they met me and were happy to have met me.
