Caregiver (Former Employee) – Spring Lake, MI – February 17, 2017
The place was great except I could not get the hours I needed. I went into elderly people's homes and cleaned, showered them, took them shopping, and visited with them. I learned that working with the elderly can be very rewarding. Again, the hardest part was people dying and the best part was hearing stories from Wold War II.
Cna / Med Aide (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – February 16, 2017
This company used to be amazing then they got rid of the owners wife in HR and replaced her with a hirrible excuse for a woman. She is so rude to all the cnas. Actually yells and thinks your are dirt if your nit a nurse. If she would just go away the company would be great again.
Caregiver/CNA (Former Employee) – Enfield, CT – February 16, 2017
It's always a busy schedule, consistent with work flow. There's the opportunity to go to school for Certified Nursing Assistant. Advancement is possible but need to be dependable. I learned working with several clients everyone is different in their own way. Management is very polite and very helpful in the fieldwork. They help with scheduling if I ever had an issue. My most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the clients and family members. The hardest part of my job was when someone would pass. You get close to them working one on one and when they pass its the hardest thing to deal with. There are many different cultures that you get to see and its very enjoyable.
Companion/Caregiver (Current Employee) – Traverse City, MI – February 15, 2017
My days at work could range anywhere from four to fourteen hour days, with multiple different tasks such as cooking, cleaning, transporting clients around, bathing, toileting etc. I learned a couple new things like how to catheterize a client and became comfortable meeting new people and making it a comfortable environment for both sides.
In Home Caregiver (Former Employee) – Portage, MI – February 14, 2017
Private in home care is not covered by health insurance, so elderly patients are paying very high rates out of pocket. If a patient become hospitalized the care giver is out of work. You don't know one minute to the next if you will have a job today as patients go into hospitals, die or run out of money. I get emotionally attached to the patients and take on all their problems and for me it's like loosing a mother or grand mother when something happens to them. Company does not allow contact with the patient or their family, after services are severed. So you can't call or check on them if hospitalized or no longer paying the company.
The business end of this job was to difficult for me to handle. I get to involved.
Helping a elderly person to stay in their home and safe.
lack of job security, low pay, emotional attachment
Caregiver/Companion (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – February 12, 2017
Provided personal supervision and support services to elderly clients. Daily duties included bathing, dressing, grooming, oral hygiene, and/ or ambulation. I also provided light housekeeping, meal planning, meal preparation, grocery shopping, and transportation to doctor appointments. I reminded clients to take medications, observed, and reported any changes in the client's mental, physical, or emotional condition.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Spartanburg, SC – February 8, 2017
Good place to work, especially for seniors or retirees. The management works closely with clients and employees. Light housework, some cooking and transporting to and from appointments and grocery shopping. Never a dull moment. Helping someone to stay in there home and continue life as they are accustomed to is more than rewarding.
In-Home Caretaker (Former Employee) – La Mirada, CA – February 8, 2017
Clients were always a top priority flexible with other job and family commitments not always sure about clients needs learned as you went to clients houses. Office staff always professional and willing to help out. Pay wasn't a good for the longer or overnight shifts but great job love it would do it again especially if in school or have a family.
Lead Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – February 7, 2017
Typical day at work is filling immediate open caregiver shift to make sure we find a qualified caregiver to meet their needs. Also, scheduled monthly caregivers and client schedules. Learn a lot about different medical disease and conditions and how to take care of the clients and their families affect by this diseases. The management is consistently firing people and there is never a sense of job security. The hardest part of the job is working with the office Manager and the owner, they plays favorites and are not consistent in management of all workers. I did love helping seniors and our caregivers.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Youngstown, OH – February 5, 2017
Management only cares about their reputation they hire more people than they actually need they honestly dont care about their workers safety i had an incident where a clients fatger was out of line asked to be removed and they ignored it and kept placing me in that home that led me to eventually quit because i was so uncomfortable in my own skin at this particular home
The actual Mission statement of the Co. is great it just needs to be put into action.
Client Care Coordinator/Scheduler (Former Employee) – Gulfport, MS, Hattiesburg, MS and Mobile, AL – February 3, 2017
A typical day of work was great for the most part as it was very busy and I enjoy that. The hardest part of the job was keeping caregivers scheduled to see clients. The most enjoyable part of the job was all of the people I met as well as worked with.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – February 1, 2017
When I started working for the company I thought it was a dream come true. That was shortly lived when you realized that the office staff was not only catty but had favorites. They lie to you and when they made mistakes they blamed the HHAs. If treating their employees wasn't bad enough, the way they treat their clients is worse! Stay far away from them.
enjoyed working with employers and clients to ensure a safe environment and quality care while maintaining privacy and adhering to HIPPA regulations
