I loved my job
Caregiver (Former Employee), United States of AmericaOctober 6, 2014
Pros: my job was worth my time
Cons: i enjoyed taking care of the elderly
My day would start at 9;00 am .i would get my client ready,make her breakfast,sit with her and eat together,read to her a newspaper,take a walk for an hour,come back rest for little bit,get lunch,do puzzles,give medication,change for the night and sleep.

It was a challenging job at first but i made it.I learnt to be patient and disciplined.

Management – more... was great they were ready to answer any questions you had and they were ready at all times to help in each and every way that you had an issue.

My co-workers were always there to support no matter what you are going through.

The hardest part of the job was a day would go without your client speaking to you due to their health.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the client would hug you and appreciate you for what you do for them despite their condition. – less

CNA/Caregiver (Current Employee), Clemmons, NCJuly 16, 2014
This company is wonderful, I've worked with them for almost 2 years now. The people who run the office are very friendly and professional and willing to work with you and help you in any way possible. There are lots of shifts available, the only disadvantage to me being that they are usually only around 4 hours.

Pros: like friendly atmosphere for this enable me to carry my task out joyfully.

Great team, independent work, flexible work shifts
Home Care Coordinator (Former Employee), San Jose, CaJune 26, 2014
Pros: flexible work shifts, weekends off, able to work from home, interaction with people
Cons: part time, no health care, low payrate
I enjoyed my experience in working for Griswold Home Care. The environment was very positive. The company has been well established through out the nation, but it works as franchised business. The one that I was at was fairly new and did not have enough revenue to offer me full time work and eventually could not keep me on the payroll. I would gladly – more... return if things changed. Wade was a great manager to work for. – less

You get variety with this company
CNA/Caregiver (Current Employee), Chandler, AZMay 2, 2014
Pros: you get paid after your done with most shifts
Cons: no benefits
You can be busy doing thing for the client or be a companionship to the clients. This job varies depending on the clients needs.
I learn something new with every client, because of who they are.
We don't really know each other, unless were the reliever for that shift.
I enjoy being with each and everyone of them, because they are special to me and I – more... do the most for each and everyone. – less

Positive work environment providing care for 97 year old client.
CNA (Current Employee), Naugatuck, CTApril 28, 2014
My day typically begins with assisting my client get up out of bed, into the bathroom for wash and oral care. Then assist to take off pajammas and into day clothes, next I assist her into the kitchen to the kitchen table. I then prepare her breakfast and remind her to take her medication. From there I assist her into the living room for her morning – more... programs or a nap. After that I make her bed, clean the bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen. Next I vacuum the house and dispose of any garbage. In the evenings I assist her with bathing and change her back into her pajamas. once a week I dust, mop house, and put rollers in her hair. Once a month I assist her to wash her hair and cut her nails, then paint them. My most enjoyable part of the day is the moments we engage in conversation. – less

clique type co workers and bad management
Client Coordinator (Former Employee), New JerseyJanuary 25, 2014
If you thought of working for this company as a caregiver, go for it.

DO NOT work in the office as a client coordinator as long as you know management will treat you fairly. Management in a New Jersey office is highly unprofessional and allows some co-workers to bully other coworkers. After a month or so it felt like it was a kindergarten classroom – more... with certain workers doing whatever they wanted while other workers were treated with disrespect. – less

Decent Money, enjoyable work. Lack hours
HHA (Former Employee), Kingston, PaDecember 14, 2013
Pros: work when you want
Cons: lack of hours to provide employees. "sub contractor" work
The money is decent, although they dont take taxes out. The work is enjoyable, if you like HHC. Management is sometimes fair-weathered and leaves a lot to be desired, and this company lacks the hours to provide full time work. Good for residual income, nothing more.
