Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA – September 15, 2017
Manager didn't seem to want to be a manager. He stayed in his office all day working on speadsheets rather than working with/training/getting the most out of employees. CFO was inconsistent in his decision making.
RN CASE MANAGER (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA 22042 – August 19, 2017
I enjoyed hospice, but after 8 years in hospice I needed a change. The best part of the job was that it can be so rewarding because you are helping people at a time in their lives when they really need it. I took care of patients in their homes.
Enjoyed the freedom of working in the field.
Hospice can consume your life with the charting and demands of the job.
If you love helping people, it is a good place to start your career

If you love helping people, it is a good place to start your career. It is a wonderful feeling you will receive helping those in need of hospice services. The one major Con would be advancement if you are not a nurse
Office Assistant / Receptionist (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA 22042 – May 15, 2017
Capital Caring was a wonderful agency that served patients with terminal illness. The medical teams were wonderful and very caring toward families and patients. The chaplains and grief counselors were excellent too.
They were instrumental in my own career goals as a pastor. I hope to be a hospice chaplain some day.
Very compassionate patient/family friendly, great to the staff too.
LPN Floor Nurse (Current Employee) – DC - District of Columbia, DC – April 24, 2017
A typical day at work on the inpatient unit includes ongoing assessing of patients to assure that they are the most comfortable they can be as acute or chronic symptoms of their life limiting illness occur, medication passes (sometimes giving PRNs Q30min for symptom management), PCA pump management, rounding with physician, wound care, spending time educating the family so they are empowered to manage their loved ones care at home and working as a team with our CNAs and other nurses to give exceptional care. I've learned a lot for end of life care and comfort and symptom control. Management with this company has exceeded my expectations. This company's hiring process is very thorough and although there are several types of personalities and people with different backgrounds, everyone gets along well and is happy to help in your time of need. The hardest part of the job is seeing death frequently and tensions within the family and pressure from the family to "do more" instead of letting death occur naturally (ex. starting IV hydration, gastric tubes and tube feeding). The most enjoyable part of the job, on the flip side, is educating the families about the dying process, what is normal, and the harmful effects of IV fluids and tube feedings and seeing the transition into death peaceful and pain free.
Front Desk Receptionist (Volunteer) (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – September 26, 2016
My experience here has been a loving and caring work place. I like all my co workers and it was never any disagreements.They show compassion and work with your schedule. The higher management made you feel welcome and didnt treat you like just a replaceable body which is hard to find in a work place.
This is one of the best companies that I have ever work at.
Chaplain (Current Employee) – Alexandria, VA – May 3, 2016
Capital Caring is a great company, that truly cares about its employees. My typical day, consists of seeing 4-5 patients and their families to provide emotional, spiritual and pastoral care and support. Our office is split into 2 teams with specific assigned areas and patients. However the both completely support one another. The most difficult part of the job, is when a patients transitions. The most enjoyable part of the job, is bringing some joy, peace, comfort and sometimes laughter to a patient and or family which allows them to forget just for a little while their terminal illness
Medical Records Intern (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – January 4, 2016
Typical day was productive. What I learned was how to be a better listener. Management was busy.Co-workers were helpful. Hardest part of the job was not being a paid employee. I really it enjoyed it there.The most enjoyable part of the job was it was gaining experience in my field.
I was able to gain experience for my future career in the medical field.
