Personal Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Farmingdale, ME – October 5, 2016
I loved working with my clients but the company expects way too much for so little pay. Average bi-weekly paycheck was around $600 working around 40 hours or more per week. LOTS of travelling required as I was travelling around 350 miles per week to help my clients

Personal Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Farmingdale, ME – July 1, 2015
This job is great for anyone who has very few commitments. While the employer made efforts to work out schedules that met consumer and worker needs, this often made for long days of split schedules. A typical day might have you caring for a consumer in the early morning and then returning later that night to get them ready for bed.
I enjoyed caring for people in their homes so they could maintain independence. The hardest part of the job was having to stand by and let people make poor choices - because that is their right.
Ultimately this job did not have a consistent schedule or provide enough hours. Many of the positions at this company are per-diem or on-call. Anyone with young children may find this role a challenge.
Decent place to work but does have office politics
Billing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Farmingdale, ME – November 9, 2012
A typical day is busy moving from task to task. I did learn alot about health care billing. The manangement takes a little getting use to. The training does not have accurate materials and does not promote note taking. The people you work with are great. There is a broad range of personalities and they meld together very well. The most enjoyable part of the job is the multiple funtions.
great people to work with. no micro managing
health care is expensive for a family, management is swayed by mood or daily feeling.
Home Health Care Provider, PSS (Former Employee) – Gardiner, ME – November 6, 2013
Working independently at clients home for 2-3 hours at a time. Whatever work plan was scheduled. Most often bathing, cleaning, meal preparation. Management for this company was scarce at best. There was no training unless requested. No advancement/education as promised in Orientation. No mileage compensation under 50 mile radius, and no job outside assigned region. Time sheets to be submitted at own expense via fax, email, postal. Hardest aspect of the job was dealing with client when nor properly trained. Most enjoyable part of job was being able to care for the clients and make their lives more comfortable and easier to manage.
Working with the clients, making their day better
No breaks, very short days, no mileage compensation, no training and only one job shadow if requested with new clients
Finance Assistant (Former Employee) – Farmingdale, ME – January 15, 2013
My typical day was full yet interesting. I dealt with the consumers which were generally elderly, sometimes forgetful people. They were fun to chat with and it gave you a sense of pride to assist them with their problems.
