    I worked at Extendicare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If You are a true Healthcare Professional and wish to make a difference, EHSI will provide a good opportunity to do so...Career Training, leadership growth and a positive team atmosphere made this company one of my favorites to work for!

    Cons

    Facility, Regional and Corporate politics on all levels was a bit challenging to deal with at times, however, it can be managed!

    Advice to Management

    You have a great philosopy with the correct service model to back it up. Look a little closer at the Regional Team providing the hands-on and face-toface time with the front line teams.

    Pros

    The people were friendly and the starting pay is great. It was a nice and easy place to work with usually low stress.

    CNA drama, they dont pass trays in the morning. But all in all everything was fun and laid back there.

    Solve conflicts when your staff come to you with them.

    Pros

    Working at Extendicare is like being in a family with lots of love .... we all work together as a team and work the hardest to make our residents comfortable and happy. Most residents that come to nursing homes don't want to be there they want to be in their homes....so that is why everyone joins together to figure out how and what our residents need to be happy in our home.

    Cons

    Sometimes the care can be very demanding and there's a need for more staff....

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at your employees ....there are some that should not be in health care
