A work place which has it's challenges, but with the great team of AIN's I work with, all challenges are faced and defeated.
There is no such thing as a perfect aged care facility, yet the staff at Opal endeavour to strive to make residents happy and keep them healthy, and endeavour to accommodate staff in all matters.
Unfortunately, due to tight time management, staff are not able to spend more time interacting with residents which is sometimes sad, as they often just - more ... want someone to talk to when their family are far away or do not often visit. But with cares being done, and buzzers being attended to most of the time, it is difficult for AIN's to spend quality time with any individual resident, however we do try ... - less
ProsA roster that accomodates my life style
ConsBetter hourly rates, run out of materials to do proper cares, flat hoist batteries causing disruption in cares.
