Admissions Coordinator (Former Employee), Victorville, CASeptember 18, 2014
Pros: if you like doing that sort of thing it's great!
Cons: if you have christian values you may find it appalling to work there.
Great place to work if you have no values. Management seems to think it's okay to have employees sleep with spouses of people (patients) who are dying.

Great place to work and very flexible hours ideal for someone with a family.
Office Manager/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 20, 2014
I would come into work at 8am check messages left the previous night and make sure each client was contacted about their concerns and questions. I would open up our email to see if there was any perspective clients that wanted to have a meeting discussing their financial situation, and check reminders for what I needed to do throughout the day. Answering – more... phones and keeping constant ongoing client contact occupied much of the day. I worked on spread sheets to compare Insurance companies and offer what was the best fit for our clients. I would leave around 3pm to pick up my then two young children from school. A lot of the times the manager/owner would be out at a meeting and I would need to keep everything in order until he returned. This job was great for me because I was as a single mom able to leave at certain times if emergencies arose during work ours. There were no benefits packages and the pay was low for the amount of hours I worked daily. – less

Volunteer (Former Employee), Little Rock, ARApril 24, 2013
I visited with patients in thier homes and at the nursing homes. I learned that people can be mistreated even in their last days of life and this was the hardest part of the volunteering job. The most enjoyable part was to see my patients smile when I visited them.

CNA (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVMarch 22, 2013
Pros: setting my own work schedule
Cons: 2 hour meetings ones a month
With to ability to set my own schedule, I would start with driving to my patient's house between 7 to 8 in the morning. So times meeting the nurse at the patient's house preforming daily care, checking supplies, then moving on to the next patient. Seeing between 4 to 8 patients a day. I worked with some of the best RNs, LVNs, CNAs, Social workers and – more... Chaplin, a team to the end. My manager was supper, she was understanding, very helpful, caring and there when ever you needed her 7 days a week. I had some difficult patient that were very demanding, which was probably the hardest thing about the job. Some wanting you there long, some wanting to do thing you're not ordered to do by the nurse. – less

playground all over again
Account Executive (Current Employee), Corpus Christi, TXAugust 8, 2012
Pros: great benefits
Cons: its not a 8-5 job
What started as a place of learning, growing and a professional environment has now turned into a playground. Working here is like being in school. You never know when you will be called into the principal's office. The employees are treated like students and each must learn to get along and play nice. You never know when someone will run to the teacher – more... and say something good or bad about you. You do your best, but its not good enough unless you're teacher's pet then everything you do right or wrong, you're the best.

The coworkers that have been in hospice for over 6-7 years are awesome and always ready to teach. However, in order to feel secure, appreciated, or accepted one has to be part of the "in-group" which are those with less experience.

This work environment should be a place where hospice professionals unite, support, and respect one another because end of life care is a difficult job. It can be draining emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. Unfortunately, some think its still being a kid on school grounds. – less

Enriching, and a great personal development position
Night Supervisor (Current Employee), Auckland, NJuly 27, 2014
Pros: being able to work as you want to with in your parameters. being part of a good team.
Cons: being alone so much. not mixing with residents much for fun stuff. adapting to new management, when we do not get to know them like on days as we do not work with them so much.
A typical night at work is getting handover and catching up about the days events, behaviours good/bad that have been noted, risk factors of residents. Checking in with the residents, asking them how thier day went, any special requests for the morning, i,e, early wake up, etc. settle the house for the night. Sort the food for the next day/days making – more... sure that the meat is out food for the menu is available. Do security check of the premises, all doors windows locked. Check the state of the house.
Checking Emails from teamLeader and team. Checking for new medicationsif any. Read the notes from when was last on, for each of the residents. If any new residents, get the information and create a new folder for them. Do the Filing for all clients and the house business. Read all relevant papers (meetings etc. Read any notes in the communication book. All the time doing room checks every 20 mins approx or more if clients at risk.
Pack up and check off all belongings if resident is leaving. making sure all items are there.
Closing down the file making sure all pages are marked with name date before sending of to storage.
Do any ordering, menus, rosters, requisitions, e mails to team.
Tidy and clean offices staff areas.
Check clients property is named and put in correct places if found in office. check the money boxes, and that all money is accounted for.
Check fridges freezers, are the correct temperatures. Clean out the meds fridge, Urine sample fridge, freezer, 1 time a month. pack away any food, cleaning supplies, stationary that may have come in to the correct places.
In the mornings wake the house at requested times or at the wake up time. Then be on the floor talking with and making sure that the morning schedule is running Ok. Do checks on the dorms with Higher level resident, check they have done all duties required. Administer any medications required before breakfast. Breakfast with residents. Administer all cleaning equipment / sprays, check jobs are done do notes. Administer any medications required after food.
Do hand over with next shift coming on.

You definatly learn thatno 2 days are ever thae same, patience, listening skills, how much fun young people are/ how complex they can be. To be able to cope in all sorts of situations. That as long as you have done all you can, you can not help them all, some are not quite ready. To learn to leave work at work.
You learn as much from them as you are hoping to show them.

You are definately part of a team, and how each individual of the team has important skills and ways that you can admire and learn from, that if yopu do have a difference with someone in the team, it is so important to talk to them about this in a proffessional way. I have been extremely lucky working in theis organisation that we are all proffessional and can be open and want feed back from each other, I feel that this is what has helped us to pull together when the going gets tough, and to really bere for each other.

The hardest part of the job for myself is when you really want to help someone, and you feel that you may not have said or done enough, or in the right way for that particular person It is getting to really know the person you are relating to, and letting them get to know you, because we see them for a short while only while they are awake, and a lot of our time is getting them to follow directives, it can seem as if we are just involved in getting them to follow house movements, exspecially when they are new for the first month. Whereas when you are on days you are involved in fun stuff as well. it is really important to listen and take what we can from other staff,

The most enjoyable part is watching this person develope and learn new ways of relating to people, problems, themselves. Knowing that even if they do not completely stop doing the things that are bad for them they now know new ways to keep themselves safe, and from experience over time I have had feed back from many of the residents down the track, that they have learned so much more from being here than I thought when they left. They have actually said that things that they learned here help them all the time. It is really enjoyable to sit around with the house when everyone is going well and just see how amazing these young people are. – less
