The business is fairly new in my area, so it's still growing. The staff are really friendly and very understanding, but they still need to work on a couple of things as listed in the pros and cons.
The management team is really nice and you can see that they are passionate about the job and care about their workers, but sometimes I feel like they think a little bit more about the money they will be getting than the safety of their workers.
My co-workers are friendly, but I was annoyed at one of them because she took the careplan home with her even though it's supposed to be in the client's home. I went to the client's home not knowing ANYTHING about her condition, which made me fear for the client's and my own safety.
The hardest part of the job is always being on call. They don't take into consideration the hours you put in for your availability and just assume you will have time to take a shift. You don't always have someone to give you a warm hand-off about the client so you're going in there blindly, which is a big safety concern especially if the client has a history of falls or is even getting violent.
The enjoyable part is the client's themselves. I've only had one unpleasant client, but I have one who I enjoy working with all the time and would love to take care of her when I am offered.
This is just a good stepping stone if you're interested in going into healthcare, but as a full-time job it doesn't pay much for the amount of work you do.
