“We try our very best and it doesn't seem to be enough.”

“It’s no wonder there are so many of us with work-related injuries, burnout and stress. We try our very best, and it just doesn’t seem to be enough. When someone calls in sick, we end up working even shorter than we already are. We can’t keep this up much longer. We need more help.”

“Even when two staff are there, it is chaos.”

“Even when two staff are there, it is chaos. One time, a resident didn’t realize that she couldn’t get to the bathroom herself, so she stood up to go and had a really bad fall. We try our best, but we cannot do it all. I leave work feeling defeated, like there is no end to this.”

“I have been physically attacked on many occasions.”

“More often than not we are working short. There are two care aides from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with 15 residents, and many of them have extreme behaviours. I have been physically attacked on many occasions.”
