Office Assistant (Current Employee), Indiana – September 6, 2015
Pros: Good paid time off, flexible, helping people stay in their home with family
Honestly this is one of the best companies I've worked for. Being able to help someone stay at home opposed to a nursing home is awesome. Others above have complained they "are for profit." Of course they are paid by Medicaid for profit, but they are providing an awesome care team to assist you. Yes, you have to enter daily notes to get paid, but that is a state requirement; Nursing homes do the same. Who will care for you better then your family? I mean really! Also, they care for their employees. They want to know how to improve and what the needs & desires are in the field.
Positive Colleague engagement and teamwork atmoshere.

Quality of service delivery, ability to engage all members of the health care industry, advocacy for seniors and caregivers were all positive aspects of the work day. Challengers were lack of awareness of the company's services by the target audiences and key referrers.
Care Manager (Former Employee), MA – March 4, 2015
Cons: 24/7 job
This company robs people caring for their loved ones by paying/reimbursing them very little as they are all on state insurance, and the company makes a fortune by keeping the clients at home as opposed to being in a nursing home. A very sad situation as they offer "raises" to people caring for their dying parents if they document the ADL'S "on time"! Major safety concerns but overlooked for the $$$ - you're definitely working for big business not a caring non-profit! As a nurse or care manager, you are on call 24/7 if you are a part time or full time employee... Stay away if you have a heart!!!
Office Assistant (Current Employee), Indiana – August 14, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule (compared to hospital/health facility), caring and supportive team
Cons: some positions require travel (but is reimbursed)
It is very exciting to work for a place that is helping families care for their loved ones at home. This level of care is new to Indiana and the team in this state is full of knowledge, and we all help each other to be successful. Great experience so far, hope to be with the company for a long time to come.

This company is by far the best organization I have worked for. Warm, friendly, professional, hard-working environment. They have mastered the delicate balance of caring for those we serve while at the same time managing resources. Management does a great job at helping their employees balance work and life. Superb!
Caregiver (Current Employee), Peabody, MA – September 12, 2013
I work 24/7. Usually I wake up at 6:00 and cook something for the person. Then I go to college, and back, and either I or others cook for him, and then In the evening; sometimes I help him to wash off and clean the room. I also shave him. I learned to shave and wash people. Usually my mother helps me to do that. I think that the hardest part of the job is to wash him off.
Home Caregiver (Former Employee), Brockton, MA – December 23, 2012
Talk to the clients ask them how there day was and make them feel wanted. Do things for them that they couldn't do themselves. Also make sure they take there meds and keep track of it in daily logs. The hardest part of the job was dealing with trouble clients that bash you. The enjoyable part of the job would just be talking to them because they do grow on you.
