As long as work was available the day was productive
Personal Care Worker (Former Employee) – Menomonee Falls, WI – March 12, 2017
A typical day doing 24 hr. live in shift was assist client with daily ADL's, grooming, meal prep, OT, PT or doctor's appointments. Home and person care. I learned that elderly people have the most experience on life and they have so much to teach. Management was very good with communicating with the caregivers. The workplace culture was very diverse. The hardest part of the job was not getting to attached to your clients. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the companionship you provide for the clients.
Didn't have to go house to house to get hours.
Clients die and you have to wait a few weeks if no available
Certified Nurse Assistant (Current Employee) – Reading, PA – January 11, 2017
The previous company i worked for when i started in 2012 merged a couple of years later with my present agency AHC, overall have worked for almost 5 years. I can honestly say all the great schedulers and volunteers they've had in the past and in the present are down to heart gals. Very flexible with schedules weekly pay. My highlight has been my clients so hard to depart from them when i need to move on to another case. The most enjoyable part of the job has been seeing the satisfaction you bring to your clients lives in care giving.
CERTIFIED HOME HEALTH AIDE (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 23, 2016
The managers there are pretty blah. They do not offer any incentives to picking up cases for the schedulers who have been called off on. This is not a company to work for if you have bills and expect consistency.
Administrative Manager (Current Employee) – Roseburg, OR – June 30, 2016
There are a couple different Advantage Home Cares out there. This review is for Oregon. The agency in Roseburg, OR is, in my opinion (as someone who has worked for several in home care agencies) an excellent place to work. The only disadvantage is that there is little in the way of advancement opportunities. Most caregivers will stay caregivers, although some want to work in the office. However, ALL EMPLOYEES are treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their position.
Clinical Supervisor (Current Employee) – Spring Hill, FL – April 8, 2016
I enjoyed working for Advantage. I worked to open a new Satellite office, but when we weren't getting patients, corporate decided to close the office and I was terminated without notice or given any type of severance. I was told that my termination had nothing to do with my job performance, since mine was excellent. It was purely a business decision. I strongly feel that they could have found another place for me in the company, but they choose not to. I felt that this entire process was handled in a very ruthless and uncaring manner.
The clinical staff
Poor and very expensive benefits, lack of appreciation for hard work and loyalty
