a typical day at work was to wash, dry, and fold clothes.To wash and dress client. To remind client to take his medicine. To feed client lunch and dinner. I learned that you should always be at work as scheduled because the client really depends on u to be there because most of the time they don't have anyone else to help them but you. I only spoke – more... to the managers over the phone never met them in person. I did home health aide so i worked alone no co-workers. The hardest part of the job was to leave the client at night knowing that he doesn't have anyone else to care for him.

There is one person in charge and that is the COO and she has taken her finger off of the pulse of the Mission and Values of Jevs. Newly hired upper management are inexperienced and do not have a clue what is happening on the front line. A salaried professional can expect to put in 60 hours a week making the general compensation less attractive than – more... it may appear. This was once a wonderful place to work. They should be renamed Jevs UN-Human (divested of human qualities or attributes) Services. Favoritism is ramped. Expectations vary from site to site. I have held several responsible positions however actively seeking new position. The general benefits are not worth the newly excessive ignorance.
