I started working for this company in February 2016 as a PCA working various shifts, eventually staying on 3-11 to become a medication associate. I’ve worked both day shift and evening shift on every unit on campus. In August 2018 I decided to further my career and go to LPN school on a very generous scholarship awarded to me by Country Meadows. The amount of support that I received during nursing school was endless. From my peers to my superiors, everyone was constantly offering help and support to help me get through school and ensure success. Management was extremely flexible helping me construct a work schedule that allowed me to be a full time student and still work. At the completion of my program, I was offered a job as an LPN which of course I accepted. I’ve now been out of nursing school for a year and have loved being able to serve my residents from the role of an LPN. This facility is beautiful both inside and out. The coworkers are all amazing individuals who I’ve had the honor of working with for 3 ½ years now. Every single person is unique, with the same goal of providing a comfortable place for our residents to call home. This campus is a place that I have enjoyed working for, and would absolutely trust for my loved one to go if the situation occurred. There is not a doubt in my mind that anyone who came here would feel they are anywhere other than home.
I will always call members (residents, residents' families, and coworkers) of Country Meadows of West Shore my family. I began working for Country Meadows of West Shore in 2011 as a Personal Care Associate in the Memory Support neighborhood. Although I was in nursing school, which was beneficial to my success in the position, I was adequately trained for my position through classes and hands-on experiences. I was given specific Dementia training to help me understand and meet the needs of those I cared for. I was also given the opportunity to take the PA state medication administration course in order to advance as a Medication Associate at no cost to me. I worked for the company until I graduated nursing school. I sought to gain experience as a nurse in an acute care setting, but once a coworker told me that the Director of Nursing position at Country Meadows was available, I reapplied to Country Meadows of West Shore and was welcomed back with open arms. It was like I had never left.
I have worked for Country Meadows of West Shore at entry and management levels and have only good things to say about the company. The residents and line of work speak for themselves. I have made lifelong friends with my coworkers. Every day, I made a positive difference in someone's life. I have never had a more rewarding career. I have also never worked for a company that valued the voices of the coworker and resident as much as Country Meadows does. If you walk through any neighborhood on campus, you can just feel Country Meadows culture and the caring attitude the coworkers possess. I highly recommend Country Meadows of West Shore to people seeking meaningful work and families looking for a trusted personal care home for their loved ones. I truly believe that at Country Meadows, life does get better. Mine sure did!
Staff steals from the residents. My grandmother has had cash stolen from her numerous times. No one in charge cares to investigate. Have to wonder if proper background checks are done on the staff.
