Not a lot of jobs available for me unless I take home bond clients....No pay increase after working for so many years at the company. Would like more rapid pay increase.

No structure
Client service manger (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHJanuary 14, 2018
I was hired as a scheduler , only less than 30 days there was no proper training no structure with the staffs like the care takers will just call in and tell you their own schedule, overall it was a high stressful environment but with proper training it may have been a little bit more smoother. The vibe was just off like they was using me as a last minute dummy.I could go on with more details . But I say NOPE to everything.
Pros
None
Cons
No structure within management

Constant schedule changes, broken promises
PERSONAL CARE WORKER (Current Employee) –  Marinette, WIJanuary 5, 2018
One cannot count on "regular" hours or clients, just as you get to know one, you are replaced by the "new girl" that YOU trained--often, insufficient "training" on new clients. Promised hours or clients mean nothing to management & scheduler. Constant schedule changes from new workers quitting and last minute changes. Often you get "cheated out" on travel miles (paid for clients within 1 hour--so either they won't schedule you another client, or they will schedule the next client 1:15 minutes so you don't get paid OR Send you to a client in the morning, then nothing again to late afternoon--so no travel miles), Often 15 minutes between clients--that takes 15-25 minutes to get there (especially in winter), Forget time to "eat lunch" between clients.
Pros
Office staff is nice. Clients are pleasant
Cons
(see review). Constant schedule changes, broken promise of amount of hours

Account Executive, Assistant ADS (Former Employee) –  Marietta, GADecember 14, 2017
Almost Family is constantly undergoing changes that are never fully integrated unto process on either the sales or operational side. I would not suggest working for this company unless you can deal with near constant chaos.

Working a live in schedule
HHA (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTDecember 4, 2017
A typical day at work includes getting clients ready in the morning by giving them baths, grooming, cooking, feeding and taking them to appointments.
There was no particular culture since it is just me and the client in their homes

Loved my coworkers; friendly
Staff RN/ Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Spokane, WANovember 28, 2017
Home health is rewarding as it relates to direct patient care but difficult in that productivity quotas don't relate to patient needs. 8 patients/ 8 hours plus travel time doesn't add up and creates pressure to cut time spent with patients.
Pros
Direct time with patients; some autonomy
Cons
productivity quotas; long hours; travel time
