RN Case Manager (Former Employee) –  SouthtownsApril 2, 2016
Support for nurses in the field 24/7. I loved the patients, good classroom training. My preceptor was the only preceptor on my team. She had no formal training as a preceptor so that did not make sense. She seemed burnt out after just 4 years on the job herself and often mentioned transferring or looking for another job. Be prepared to bring work home with you. Hours of take home documentation most nights as well as constantly writing yourself notes and thinking about what needs to be done. I would wake up in the middle of the night making mental notes. I could not foresee anyway to balance home and work life. It seemed as though everyone there readily accepted that way of life. I think one has to just love work and especially palliative care for a home care position to be a god fit. I did not last long, I value having a life outside of work too much.

Home Health Aide (Former Employee) –  Cheektowaga, NYDecember 3, 2014
I worked as a Home Health Aide at Hospice of Buffalo. I would travel to the homes of my patients, care for them, read to them, what ever gave them comfort after all my duties were completed, which included but was not limited to personal care.

Management was supportive and caring. If it not for the economy and census decline I would still be employed with them and have no reason to leave there.
Pros
working independantly, flexible scheduling
Cons
none.
