Baruch Senior Ministries

Resident Care Specialist

June - August 2019 • Traverse City, MI

What I liked

I liked caring for the residents and being involved in the care. It was a great opportunity to learn more about the medical field and patient provider interactions. I also gained a lot of valuable skills that will very much be helpful in other related positions.

What I wish was different

I don't feel like I was properly trained, there was a change in management that was really unfortunate and lead to residents receiving poorer care. It was also frustrating because the company was understaffed, the training was inconsistent, and much of the staff was not prepared or trained to provide quality care.


It was really easy to prioritize my residents well being over my own, and this lead to a lot of health problems for myself, especially working in a high stress environment. Remember to take care of yourself and listen to your body and your mental health.
