Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – April 11, 2016
Every job has a good and bad day. It's up to you to make the best of it. You have to remember some clients can't tell you if he/she is in pain, something is bothering them/things in that nature. I've learn a lot with different clients.

ComforCare is simply just a job and nonetheless I am thankful for it. However, I am personally overqualified for this job, especially when compared to the majority of people they hire. I've been at this job for 3 years and I have never seen so many unqualified people be hired to take care of the elderly. They will literally hire ANYBODY. Alcoholics, drug addicts, people who can't read/write/or speak English fluently, people who are physically incapable of doing the job and who seem to need home health care themselves! Shoot, I've seen them hire many young teenagers and old women who can't even cook! Which, might I add, is a big part of the job!
I guess what can you expect when you get paid $10/hr and only see a raise ONE TIME IN THREE YEARS. Considering clients pay approximately 3 times that amount for our services, I might just be better off working for myself. It sure does make me wonder where all the money goes. In fact, a 10 cent raise is just an insult. However, if you are a capable person who doesn't like to do much, this might be the job for you. A lot of time it just involves sitting and keeping clients company and talking with them. Hence why I am ok staying here, making my stupid $10/hr.
The scheduling is "flexible", meaning you can choose how many shifts you want to work and in that respect, it would be a good job for mothers with children. The tricky thing about this business is that when people die, you're out of work. Plus, it's just plain sad getting to know people and then losing them to death.
The job does have it's perks though, like personal gratificationmore... for helping people on a daily basis.less
Home health is a very hard job to work because you have no co-workers and you have to figure things out on your own. I had no work to life balance because no labor laws govern home health care so I could work 72 hour shifts and no one cared.
Care taker for the special needs and elderly (Former Employee) – Beaver Dam, WI – January 3, 2016
Drove to every client to take care of them and give them company. Didn't work with any of the other employees it was just me. The best part was seeing the clients smile and knowing you made their day a little better by helping them and making them laugh. The hardest part was driving so far every day.
short notice of new client, messed up on pay a lot, didnt seem to have things in order.
Home Health Aide (HHA) (Former Employee) – Saginaw, MI – December 22, 2015
Atypical work day would be with a client. I havent really learned much that i didnt already know. Management was horrible I Always Worked Alone. The Hardest part of the job was the Hoyer Lift. The Most Enjoyable Part Of The Job Was Getting To Know The Elderly.
The owner is wonderful. She was awesome to work for and truly loves what she does. She makes sure that each resident is taken care of fully. I would recommend that anyone who is looking for home care, contact this company
As an Executive assistant. I have learnt patient intake, visit patient and facilitate aid as an home aide. Therefore, I was wearing several hats. I like the environment since I was working alone with minimal supervision. However, limited hours to continue as a full-time employee.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – November 17, 2015
The owners of this company I worked for have sold out to someone new so I am not sure what the company is like to work for now. However, when I was employed there, the pay was horrible and I got a pay decrease for working an overnight position, below minimum wage.
