In-home care has many benefits:
Providing an opportunity to elderly and disabled persons to have quality of life at home. This care often delays advanced care, skilled nursing facility transfer and hospitalization.
Forming meaningful, purposeful relationships.
Flexibility in hours and days of the week.
Beneficial and relevant experience for healthcare – more... students.
The management is awesome. The current manager is opening an office in Redding and I have not had the opportunity to meet the new manager.
As well as many drawbacks:
Inconsistent hours and temporary shifts
Too few hours or too many, the drawback of being on call due to your per-diem hire status. It is IDEAL for students.
If looking for a consistent/stable 40 hours while balancing a family it is not ideal.
LOTS of driving. The majority of my shifts were 30-45 minutes one-way. Very small percentage paid mileage. – less
