Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – November 12, 2015
This company moved 3 times in 4 years. My client never had the same nurse for more than 3 visits which meant I never had the same supervisor for more than 3 visits. As with all home care aide jobs the pay never increased.
counselor (Former Employee) – Buffalo – April 9, 2014
Worst job I ever had. I literally would have nightmares about going in, them vomit when I pulled into the parking lot. Management is ridiculous; unorganized and unapproachable. In fairness, I think I may have enjoyed working there, if I worked in another position. I worked there as a therapist, and have since become a nurse...which I would consider taking a position as.
Horizon Health Services were very helpful in hiring me to accomplish caring for my mother.
Health Aide (Current Employee) – Laurel, MD – March 20, 2014
Any client will be blessed with me taking care of them , i'll do the best job possible. As for a typical day ,mother received a full bath each and every day for the six years she was bed ridden. Many years i transfered her to the wheel chair myself to give her bath tub complete bath with a hair cut to keep her fresh and feeling good. The nurse would be called if there were any problems and also my employer or case worker whatever the case would be .I had help coming from every direction and wecomed it.What i learned was that it takes a army of health care specialists to help care for my mother for her to encounter the best care and a comfortable fulfilled life that she had. The hardest part was probably being the only child left to take on so much responsibility but i so enjoyed every part of the business of health care services. This is what i have known for so many years.

They offer a wonderful service, however as a employer they are lacking. Basically training for a job is on your own. Management both middle and upper is very clique either your one of them or not. So asking the mentoring program is kind of a joke. Also don't be surprised if your hired for one job and expected to do something completely different. They offer a great service, however most ppl don't plan their careers there due to the politics of what involves to working there.
more political orientated than employee orientated
Case Manager (Erie County case Management) (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – August 6, 2013
Evaluate and enroll clientele in Erie County SPOE system on line. Follow up with clients prior linkages requesting records to verify diagnosis, identify clients immediate needs and linking to appropriate services in the community. Keep up individual service plans for clientele and follow up with linkages to monitor progress. Assist and get assistance with co-workers on linkages for clientele. Meet with clients in the community and office setting to monitor and assess clients needs and progress. The most enjoyable part of this job was to see clients progress. Hardest part of the job was working more hours to manage case load, there was no team concept to manage case load, and co-occurring population which was seldom grateful.
