worst all around company
Hospice Nurse Case Manager (Former Employee), Cranford, NJJuly 22, 2014
A basic and integral lack of integrity, respect and professionalism. The focus is on numbers not the delivery of quality patient care.

Credibility of Company was excellent
Certified Nurse Aide/Homehealth Aide (Former Employee), Township of Jackson, NJJuly 14, 2014
Pros: was not required to wknds or holiday
Cons: lunch on the run, short breaks
typical day consisted of ADL'S of Hospice patient with lots of informative situations, management was at best neutral, The hardest part of any regular days was parting from the patient, My co-workers for the most part were very helpful when in the same work area

Company really did not care
home health aid (Former Employee), Cranford New JerseyFebruary 18, 2014
Cons: had to always question pay check
this company has no compassion for the people on hospice and or their employees,worked for them and I was treated like I was a nothing,I never called out and always was there for them,but they were not there for me,they were not a good company to work for.

I though did meet some really good people out in the field,and I loved my patients and they loved – more... me. – less

Hardest job Ive ever had
Home Health Aide (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: working in different facilities meeting a lot of people
Cons: often not getting the help from facility staff to assist you, they all pass
A typical day would be to go from facility to facility to see patients that are needing end of life care. I learned excellent time management and extra compassion not only for patients but for their families as well. I worked pretty alone most of the time other than once in awhile I would see the case manager for the patient. The hardest part of the – more... job was not getting emotionally attached, something I never mastered and in turn had a very hard time with when they passed away. The most enjoyable part of the position was getting to be part of their final moments here on earth and hearing family stories of their loved ones accomplishments throughout their life. – less

Interesting program...Some staff believe in Holistic, others do not.
Internship and Volunteer Companion (Former Employee), Riverside, CAMarch 23, 2013
Pros: everybody has a life story...learning these stories is amazing.
Cons: walking iunto a family dynamic, one never knows what they will find.
Working as a volunteer, being sent into a family in the midst of life crisis taught me to quickly learn the family dynamics and all the needs associated with the process. Patients want to maintain the hihest form of dignity under these life ending circustances. Families want to give what they can. It is up to the staff and volunteers to provide all – more... the necessary care that we can. – less

unprofessional management
former CNA (Former Employee), MANovember 30, 2012
Pros: caring staff in the field.
Cons: management
Many good caring employee's, totally unprofessional management. I was one of a many nurses and aides terminated after reported seeing abuse at the facilities we visited. Management more concerned about retaining their corporate customers (nursing homes) than holding onto staff. Part of CareOne in NJ, not a good reputation with labor in a few states.

Great place to work
Staffing Coordinator (Former Employee), Cranford, NJJuly 13, 2012
A typical day at work started before you left you home. My days were very busy and demanding. Covering cases when Home Health aide call out was one of the hardest part of the job. Great co-workers and team players. Great benefits. Great company.

some wonderful people, but like being on TV reality show at times, saying is this really happening.
Director of Business Development (Former Employee), MAAugust 31, 2011
Pros: some very nice poeple
Cons: soap opera company culture
Some wonderful people as is with all hospice teams. As company CareAlt leadership from corporate down very poor and unorganized. Lack of company mission and culture. Company is run like a mom and pop family that has so many dysfunctional issues. Short term mindset kills them. The exact opposite of a successful corporate model such as Southwest Airlines.MA – more... office though some wonderful, wonderful people! Issues of being very disorganized, lack of being on same page. Needs to upgrade professionalism. Hopefully will change as some wonderful people there. I can see MA office evolving, corporate leadership lacking needed leadership skills. – less
