NOT a pleasant work environment.
Personal Care Worker (Former Employee) – Altona North VIC – 13 April 2017
Management are unappreciative and unapproachable.
You will be called in to see the manager for any sick leave/carers leave, even if you have medical certificates and plenty of accrued sick leave....and then you'll be forced to take annual leave even if it's not an appropriate time for you to take it.
The diversional therapy/activities for the residents is virtually non existent and staff are expected to deal with difficult behaviours despite often being short staffed.
Management will not support staff if they are bullied or verbally abused by visitors/family members.
General feeling amongst staff is fear/that they are being watched/will be called out for some trivial matter.
The staff that work tirelessly to keep the residents happy, and the residents themselves.
Unpleasant work environment, management ignores your ideas for a better work place for all.
