Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – October 9, 2017
Helping Hand was a productive team of workers. Everyone was considered a team player. They had an amazing staff, who cared and loved their patients. Being on a floor with 15 patients to attend to wasn't an easy task because each person had different personalities. The easiest part of the job is making rounds with the less difficult patients.
it was fun spending time with the patients had three in total

HHA/Caregiver (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – August 21, 2017
Unprofessional and the pay sucks dont waste your time, they take you through hoops and ladders just to offer very low unlivable pay. Would not recommend this hha agency they will never go up on pay-rate even tho they can afford to
I enjoyed my time working with helping hands. Helping my elderly residents have also given me the chance to gain different skills.
Home Health Care Provider (Former Employee) – Flint, MI – July 9, 2017
Working at Helping Hands have given me the opportunity to also better myself in a different work environment. I have learned a lot of things that I know that I can use in my near future to better myself like patience and time management I've learned both of those working in the environment of Helping Hands and I really appreciate all the skills and the time I have learned working there.
great skills, great employees, great work environment, great residences
I really can't think of a con that really stands out to me, only because I have had a great time working at Helping Hands

Management and clerical very disorganized, no communication. Except for head nurse, this place seems to hire only millennials, and they aren't very concerned or considerate of their workers. When you ask questions, they get very snippy with you.
STNA HOME AIDE (Former Employee) – West Chester, OH – June 15, 2017
They get right to business once you apply! Called the same day and started the following week! Very friendly environment which made me excited to start working. Assured would have great clientele to work for and if any problems there is someone there to help!
CNA/HHA (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – June 14, 2017
overall the job itself is a good job but as far as the company is very disorganized. The act as if they don't care not only for the certain clients but they don't care for their employers. they have a hard time with communicating
HHA - Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – West Chester, OH – June 13, 2017
Compensation for travel was horrible. Most home health companies would have good compensation pay as well as hourly pay.. you start off with low pay and it takes at least a year to get a raise which isn't much.. And your travel times vary from day to day.
Works around ypur schedule, most people you interact with are great people
supportive, dedicated, and caring staff and management
Home Health Physical Therapist (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – May 2, 2017
A very pleasant place to work, I had excellent support from office staff and management to make my job easier. There was an effort to give each therapist his/her own territory, but occasionally I had to drive long distances between patients; however, I was paid a little extra for fuel costs for some of these patients. Many staff went above and beyond to care for their clients, and nurses usually responded quickly to my concerns for patients.
Reasonable pay, supportive management, culture of care
I did not like working for this company. The pay is horrible, you are not respected as an employee, the scheduling team don't know what they are doing, I would make appointments and plans around my work schedule they gave me and would end up having to cancel them because they would throw last minute clients on my work day. Then they would schedule my clients so close together I would not have time to stop and get lunch and if I did stop and get lunch or even brought my lunch I would be late to My next client which would put me late the rest of the day and everytime I mention this to them they would tell me why you have a 15-minute grease time to be late to your next clients house, then you get chewed out by your client for being late!
You don't have a boss constantly looking over your shoulder, which you can go to any in home health care and get.
Not enough time in between clients for a lunch break
Home Health Aide (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 1, 2017
Mi consejo son estar seguro de cuándo uno quiere trabajar de Homecare aide es mucha responsabilidad y sobretodo hay q amar nuestro trabajo con las personas mayores de edad y sobretodo darle toda la ayuda que necesiten.a mi me gusta mi trabajo
Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH 45241 – March 29, 2017
I've worked for Helping Hands for almost a year. If you want guaranteed hours than this is the job for you. If a client cancels, they will find you another one to make up the hours. You can pick your availability of the hours that you want to work. The only down side I have is sometimes they dont give you enough travel time to get to house to house and you dont have any breaks in your day to stop and get lunch or just have a break.
Good Hours and pay friendly patients but staff lacks people skills
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Temperance, MI – March 4, 2017
The most enjoyable part of this job was my clients, I enjoyed taking care of them helping them learn, helping them get better or just simply getting them to smile. Hardest part was not getting attached to these wonderful people.
Helping someone who cant help themselves
Staff was rude and did not have good bed side manor treated clients as if they was below them
Home Health Aide (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 25, 2017
Its a great Organization if you have someone in your family with an illness and needs assistance. They actually take the time to hire someone that will actually assist you with your needs. Im glad to be apart of this organization
