Kudos to excellent staff at York Extendicare

You hear so many horror stories about care being given in nursing homes. I can tell you that the staff at the Extendicare on York Street are very caring and just wonderful. They go over and above and they treat your family member like a loved one of their very own.From cleaning staff, to personal aide workers, to the nursing staff, to dietary aides these people all go the extra mile and are such hardworking good people. They say Extendicare York should be on the bottom of your list of places to go. I disagree. Thank you all for the care you have given my family members and the other residents as well. Words cannot express how grateful we are for all that you do.

    Tara, as an outsider looking in, anyone that visits there can see that the staff only view it as a job. There have been many documented cases of neglect in that home for years.

    I disagree with Dave. The staff are incredible there. It is the fact that it is for profit that is the problem. I worked there for 6years as a registered nurse. We did what we could with limited resources. The staff care and try very hard. The bottom line was always money/ profit. Management treat staff very poorly there so anyone who stays has a passion for these people.

    I have an exact opposite opinion of the place. My grandparents both passed away in that facility. These people do not care about the residents. They show minimal compassion.
    It is JUST a job to most that work there.
