Great Culture - Amazing management and co-workers!
Lead Talent Acquisition Consultant (Current Employee), Rochester, NYFebruary 17, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, supportive management, advancement opportunties
Cons: standard cost-share medical insurance. other than that, none.
I have been with Lifetime Care (formerly GRHC) for 11 years and I wouldn't trade my experience for anything. I have been given multiple learning opportunities, both onsite and offsite, and have been afforded the chance to advance in my chosen field. Ours' is a culture where careers thrive, where management is supportive and where co-workers are team-oriented – more... and fun to work with.

The hardest part of my job is leaving my work at work. The most enjoyable part is coming to work every day. – less

Difficult to get individual assistance needed for proper training in your field
Hospice Home Care Worker (Former Employee), WintonNovember 23, 2013
1. Poor training. Preceptors that were assigned were not qualified or licensed to train in the field that I practiced in.
2. Place is very large and difficult to learn all the area needed to be successful.
3.Expectations not clear, New hire training not appropriate for the each professions.
4.Computer training lacking much of the training related to – more... policy and procedure .

What it boils down to is the company likes to give the impression that they CARE as many of the home care agencies like to believe they do until you talk with the people that work out in the field..

BUT it boils down to its all about productivity, quantity, not the quality of visits of each professional dealing with many of the patients in their homes the chronically ill or dying. – less

Pros: free lunch at times
Cons: pay
Phone answering and appointment scheduling.

Management was all out for the nursing not other employees

A great deal of jealousy among co-workers.Gossip.

Very political
Nurse (Former Employee), Rochester, NYJune 18, 2013
Pros: the people who are not in supervision give their hearts and soul.
Cons: bias and political
If you aren't one of the "old timers" from way back when, you don't stand a chance with this organization. Political, partial and a lot of dysfunction in management. It may be okay if you are a doobe out in the field, but if your job involves any interaction with the so called "elite" and you don't play the game, they will do what they can to make you – more... want to leave. Has happened to at least 4 people I know who are amazing nurses and did well in other organizations. Seriously.... if you don't want your self-esteem ruined... don't go there. – less

Outstanding Non-Profit Home Care Provider with a Great President
Current Employee (Current Employee), Rochester NYMarch 13, 2013
Pros: great president, excellent time off benefits, signing bonuses
Cons: standard medical insurance (cost share)
Lifetime Care is one of several non-profit home care agencies in Rochester and the largest. They do a really good job with orientation of nurses new to home care and provide a educator for awhile to co-visit with you. This allowed for on the job training as home care nursing is very independent and different from hospital nursing.

Pay is lower than – more... hospitals but with the budget cuts at state and federal levels I am sure they are doing the best they can. I am told reimbursement rates are lower for home care agencies which is a shame seeing how fast hospitals discharge patients to home care. Seems to me it should be hospitals who are reimbursed lower. Nurses can pick up extra visits for extra money with this company too. And, they offer lucrative signing bonuses.

Their president is the best. She speaks from the heart and holds regularly scheduled state of the agency meetings for all staff, holds question and answer periods, and is accessible.

Health benefits are pretty standard but the time off is teriffic. Their sick time benefit is very rich and they even have a benefit for employees who maintain perfect attendance, allowing RNs to earn an extra 4 days off per year, in addition to vacation, and personal days. – less

Poor management
employee (Current Employee), winton rdFebruary 8, 2013
Pros: free lunches, has a employee whose job it is to create job satisfaction
Cons: low pay, poor management
- Lowest pay in the area for the same job
- the only way to advance is to know people
- Management is very dicriminative, singles out and plays favorites, inconsistant, almost an "us vs them" attitude with the staff
- communication is poor
- Coworkers are awesome

It's an agency that deals with medical and perswonal care in a clients home so they don't have to go to a nursing home.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee), Newark, NYFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: you get to meet different people and understand their disabilities.
A typical day is looking at a clients personal care plan and doing what it tells you to do for that perticular client. I learned about how many people there are out there that need medical assistances from an agency who have no family members to help them. I worked with just myself in my clients homes. The harest part of the job is watching the clients – more... pass away slowly in front of your eyes. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you get the clients that are having a bad to smile and be cheerful again. – less

Lifetime Care is a very nice and enjoyable place to work.
Team Medical Secretary (Former Employee), Newark, NY 14513October 2, 2012
I enjoy working at Lifetime Care very much. It has a very laid back atmosphere. Those of us that do not work with the public can dress down each day in blue jeans which makes me feel very comfortable. I put together all of my paperwork that comes in on a daily basis, making sure they have all the appropriate signatures and dates on them. I then get – more... into Allscripts program and start processing my paperwork. I take calls throughout the day from staff and clients. I process lab request and internal request when needed. I check to see throughout the week on what staff we have for the upcoming weekend. I learn something new each day. I enjoy working with all of my co-workers. We work together as a team. I feel the most enjoyable part of my day is that we are able to have small conversations and some laughs throughout the day with each other and the nurses that come in from the field. – less

Home health care and hospice
Home Health Aide (Current Employee), greece, nyJuly 11, 2012
Pros: you will love what you do and why you do it
Cons: low pay, traveling
i have found this job a blessing. It has made me a more grateful person. You have to have patience and understanding with the work you do and the people you meet. Staff is very understanding and always available. Though coming from a long distance and inconsistent hours put me at stress with not creating enough income and distant from family members. – more... most enjoyable part of the day is having that one-on-one and creating wonderful moments with those that need it. – less

great coworkers
Insurance Liaison Assist (Former Employee), Rochester, NYMay 18, 2012
Pros: great people, flexibility in schedule
Cons: management stuck up
The job at Lifetime was very rewarding. I made sure that patient's didn't have to worry about making sure they had insurance coverage while dealing with more important issues. I made sure that all the insurance information was correct and updated so the patient could worry about getting better. I enjoy working with people and after 13 yrs at Lifetime – more... I had made alot of friends. All of whom where always willing to pitch in and help if needed both on and off the job. – less
