Office Manager/Director of Human Resources (Current Employee) – Monroe, NJ – June 25, 2015
My typical day at work is to arrive before anyone else so that my work can be done. Because this position is a 24/7 on call position, the main administrative duties need to be done early so that when distractions come into view, it won't affect the work load.
I learned to manage my time and work load so that it would be done efficiently and on a timely basis.
My co-workers are wonderful and I get along with each and everyone; however, there's a time and place to relax and slack off.
The hardest part of the job is when clients or aides call out and coverage is not available or when you get a new case on a Friday afternoon and needs to be filled ASAP.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to see a client satisfied when the aide is kind, compassionate and willing to help.
Care Coordinator Manager (Former Employee) – Longmont, CO – July 1, 2016
Owner has a terrible temper who is verbally abusive with foul language to her in office staff, and who micro manages via phone or in the office and ordering how and when a job should be completed. It is impossible to keep up with her demands as she is always added new duties. Other in office staff also feel the negative environment.The most enjoyable part of the job was to be in contact and communicate with staffing who did in home services.
working with in home service staff
lack of training (I was given a "2 month learning curve"
Personal Care Aide-Part Time (Current Employee) – Glen Allen, VA – March 31, 2016
I consider myself lucky to work for this agency. I have almost 10 years experience in Home Care Management. I became certified as a PCA because I thought having these skills would come in handy for supplemental income/part time.
The franchise I work for has been good to me. They send me to clients within my chosen driving radius. The majority of my clients have been an absolute pleasure to work for!
When you are dependable and professional, they will offer you lots of pick-up shifts. I have been awarded Caregiver of the Month twice, and I am part-time! They are generous with awarding gift cards of your choice.
I appreciate the Direct Deposit! What I would like to see happen though, is for them to investigate supplemental Health Insurances (payroll deduct) to offer all their Caregivers. I am under-employed and cannot afford insurance. The Health Care Marketplace sucks, and even with the portion they cover, I still cannot afford it.
Great Clients, reasonable driving distance, shifts that work for YOU, gift card perks, extra pay for covering last minute shifts.
No Medical/Health/Dental/Life/401 K offerings at this time.

Home Health Aide (Current Employee) – Westerville, OH – May 15, 2014
It is typically a one on one assignment and just like any health setting irrespective of clients current physical appearance there is always that need to double check on the client every now and then coughing.Sleep patterns, Skin, color changes, weight gain or loss Client comfort, daily interactions and respect for privacy. As a direct provider of care/assistance my utmost priority was my clients comfort so once i had established a rapport with them they became a part of me and I don't see my reliability to them as a job but something I love to do" CARE". The hardest part of the job is getting to know a person's do's and don'ts but you can't be guaranteed you will for even up to 11 weeks or close. The most enjoyable part is waking up to yourself with a smile on the face that you made another person's day or night better either by listening, laughing at their jokes or paying mind to the little things no one else did .
manager of the business has a great personality, very calm, appreciates workers and also takes turn in being a companion for his clients.
nothing in particular not common with other companies
Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Hobe Sound, FL – March 19, 2014
I enjoyed having many different clients and staying busy. A typical day at work for me was long. I would get to my first client at 9 am prepare meals, made sure medications were taken on time, we even played the WII that was fun. I did anything to make my clients happy. The next client i would see for a few hours, bath them, feed them, and made sure medications were taken, we also went for walks. Than I would see another client which she was wheelchair bound so I helped her with everything, going to the restroom,meal prep, transporting her from the wheelchair, doctor appointment, shopping, visiting family etc. Than I would go back to one of my clients houses who I had seen earlier in the day to do nightly activities to get them prepared for bed. My day would end around 10/10:30 at night.
always busy, enjoyed my clients company as they enjoyed mine.
