Not clinical (Current Employee) – Kentucky – June 5, 2015
The culture is commendable and honorable. The company and management's focus on helping patients is outstanding; however, their focus on helping their employee is weak. Little to no advancement. If you are not clinical - it feels as if you do not matter.

Volunteer and Individually Paid (Former Employee) – Greater Louisville, KY area. – April 18, 2014
I received many opportunities to provide bodywork and massage to individuals in their last few years or months of life. Some of the persons that I worked-on would schedule me weekly and referred to me as THEIR therapist! (Many of these individuals I enjoyed working on just to see their smiles and their increased activity after the session(s).)
Others were very bitter and dishonest in their reports of my visits; sadly though the organization did/does not have an effective manner of investigation.
The most difficult part of the job were dishonesty among members of the various teams.
The most rewarding experiences were when they family of the (now deceased) person would invite me to the funerals because the (now decreased) individual respected me that much!
the opportunity to volunteer my time for the benefit of others!
very little safe-guards against false reporting, and the falsification of any therapist's session.

Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 24, 2013
A typical day at work consists of providing care to terminally ill patients whether it be hospice or palliative care in nursing and skilled- living facilities. While being at Hosparus I have learned the importance of providing care to terminally ill patients is just as important as it is for patients that are not terminally ill. It is a very rewarding job and it will open your eyes to the dying process in so many ways. I just love it! Everyone works as a team and they make you feel very valuable to the company and you never feel left out.The hardest part of the job is dealing with the deaths of patients that you have gotten close to. The most enjoyable part of the job is how the families and patients appreciate your help and they tell you all the time. It really makes my day worthwhile!
benefits, employees appreciation events and the flexibility of the job.
Administrative Specialist (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – June 8, 2012
I felt valued by management and peers on a daily basis. The organization had a great mission and provided top quality care to its patients. The only downside was lack of ability to advance without a clinical degree, as most positions required nursing education.
