Busy ever changing environment
I have worked for VMCH for many years and found the organisation good to work for with many roles available and good advancement.

The merge and changes to management were difficult however, they have settled and business is starting to run smoothly.

Friendly workplace, old building,
I have worked for the facility for 6 years now. Since VMCH have taken over not much as changed. We still have the same amount of carers on the floor with an increasing number of resident's with high care needs, as we are aging in place and no longer send resident's requiring more care to another facility. The building itself is quite dated, not equipped with facilities big enough for residents requiring machines to transfer them, bathrooms are small, there is not much room for storage of machines. We used to have a dementia specific area with secured doors for safety, those doors are taken down and everyone is mixed together creating many more behaviours with people with dementia being in a loud environment and often they are able to abscond from the facility with visitors putting them in increasing danger of becoming lost and harmed. A new facility was proposed to be built 3years ago, nothing has eventuated and we are left with a facility that was never built for any of this.

Be cautious
The HR department bully and intimidate employees and give out incorrect information to employees regarding their entitlements. They put employees at risk by not providing adequate support and information to keep them safe in the workplace. Incompetent management who do not know relevent laws and acts applicable to the industry.
Pros
salary sacrificing, nice ground staff, beautiful clientele
Cons
management are incompetent

productive
I have learned a lot working in villa maria as a food service attendant.i have learned to deepend my patience and understanding not only to my work mates but to the resident as well.
i had learned from my experience to always get ready and prepare myself for any changes in management or any challenges.

the most enjoyable part is when my hard work being recognized by the resident and the management
