CNA/Caregiver (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – December 13, 2017
Many people may die alone, but hospice allows someone to be their to comfort the dying patient. A typical work day can be busy making sure the patient is comfortable as possible. Management has the best documentation in patient care. With a workplace culture that is clean, quiet, and peaceful. The enjoyable part of the job is bringing joy in his or her last days of life. Although watching them die is hard to do.
peacefulness of the job
also having to console family instead of just patient, with the start of family members death
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 26, 2017
This is typically how I start my day at my current job,i create a schedule for which days I will see my patients on. Normally my schedule has at least 7-8 patients a day, I start out with my first patient with a meet and greet and explain to them what service I'm about to provide for them. My job is to observe and to monitor and report any changes. The bright side to my day is making sure my patients is sastified and has a smile on there face when I leave. The hardest part of my job is when they pass away. What I learned about my job is to treat everyone like you would like to be treated, and that is with respect.

Working for Hosparus has been the greatest opportunity of my Life.Management is excellent and understanding. Most enjoyment of my day is seeing patients/family face lite up when you provide them with the assistance they need.
Team RN (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – January 17, 2017
I didn't leave Hosparus because of the company, but rather because of scheduling conflicts. I loved the company and the many staff members I worked with. I enjoyed the multidisciplinary team approach and would recommend to anyone who is interested in end of life care. This company is truly doing the work of angels.
Maintenance Manager (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – May 19, 2016
Lots of responsibility and lots of recognition. I loved working for this company. The staff have a heart of gold and try their hardest to push through the heart ache on a daily basis. I met lots of great people during my coarse of employment. I really miss this place.
Accounts Payable Intern (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – May 14, 2016
Honestly I'm so fortunate to have met the amazing people working at Hosparus. They allowed me to learn so much about how a business operates and let me blossom into a young businessman. I truly am grateful for the culture of their work environment and it made me excel in the tasks that were presented to me. My co-workers made sure that I constantly had support in whatever I was doing and they really made me feel like a part of the team. When a company has a good work environment, it makes the machine run smoother. I took away so much more than learning how to do my job, I took away experiences that will bode well for my future career.
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.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – January 2, 2015
The company is great to its employees, very supportive and provides opportunities for education and furthering of ones career goals. The coworkers are independent and friendly as well as inclusive of new employees unlike some other locations.

I became a hospice volunteer due to my passion for caregiving and helping other families and patients will terminal illnesses. I have had this experience personally in my own family and wanted to give back.
Flexible schedule, social networking and interaction.
Volunteered as a medical massage practitioner and an "11th hour" volunteer.
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.

CNA/HHA (Former Employee) – New Albany, IN – April 24, 2013
I worked with a great bunch of people. The greatest part of my job was knowing I could take my time with my pts. ADLS and time to sit and talk with them. It was hard losing them. The most enjoyable part was coming home knoing my job was completed.
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.
