Housekeeping in Kilbirnie, Wellington
on 29 July 2022
Productive
Was definitely a hard job but my co workers were really nice to me even though they were much older then me but it was hard to manage Monday-Friday while having 2 kids at home plus covering everyday for someone at the job

Lovely residents but terrible management
Often expected to do everything perfectly which is impossible in a timely manner. Often you don’t get breaks and senior staff are not helpful.Not great training for resident or staff safety in most cases as they expect one person to be able to handle residents who clearly needs 2 assist or more.

Busy workplace, sometimes expected to work miracles
When I began at Ryman they promised to pay above industry average wages. They have gone back on this promise and as minimum wages rise their pay rates for employees has not risen at the same rate. As a caregiver your day can be extremely busy. Sometimes the list of work given is unrealistic - even if all of your residents are having a “good” day. The unit co-ordinater made several requests for permission from head office to roster on another caregiver which was always declined. The workload was often increasing but the pay and hours rostered stay the same. On a positive note if you like extra work there are often shifts going. I loved the residents and 99% of the employees there are awesome! Ryman does a great job of maintaining and encouraging positive team culture. Everyone in my unit was a mentor and happy to share their knowledge and experience. There are team benefits, uniform provided, and sock and shoe allowance.

Inadequate training for new caregivers
I got hired as a caregiver on a casual contract. I was completely new to caregiving and felt like I was thrown into the deep end as the training was insufficient (3 days of orientation) and there were so many different jobs to pick up throughout the day due to COVID regulations. They are also very understaffed so as a casual you could easily end up doing full time hours which in my case wasn’t possible and I had informed them I was only looking to do part time hours. Most of the staff are kind and helpful and want you to do well but I felt overwhelmed with all the work thrown at me, especially since most of the long term caregivers didn’t have things written down, you were just expected to remember the preferences and conditions of the 40 residents. I heard that working at the rest home is more manageable for a new caregiver, the hospital section is very full on and I wouldn’t recommend it to someone who has not done caregiving before.
