Organization with value!
Service Coordinator (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAJuly 8, 2013
LOVE this organization! Great values and mission and I'm honored to be an employee. Every job has its pros and cons but PCA is definitely one of those places where the pros cancel out the cons. Flexibility with schedule as far as the days and times you are in the office. You can schedule your home visits any way you like and I love that.. it's so convenience. I love being a service coordinator it brought a new view about elderly people and I have learned a lot about the field through guidance from the welcoming staff. It's only been 5 months but PCA looks like it's going to be my last stop!

Making a Difference
Assessment Worker (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJanuary 16, 2013
Pros: usually home by 3pm.
Cons: take work home to be completed
PCA has extremely nice employees who work hard to help you understand and learn your position. The hardest part of working at PCA was the low pay and completing assessments in individuals’ homes. Often, homes are infested and not cared for due to the consumer’s condition.

an organization in significant contraction due to funding loss. while very well intended very poorly managed.
Care Management Supervisor (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PASeptember 5, 2012
Pros: proximity to where i live
Cons: the minimization of staff
supervising care managers, answering question, reviewing their work and files. ive learned the state and federal guidelines and protocols for aging services. really great people who were trained incorrectly regarding supervision and administration. right now the hardest part is seeing such extensive layoffs, amd knowing there will be more.relating to my staff is the best part of every day.

Face paced and demanding workplace. Evaluating and executing individualized service plans.
Care Manager (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJuly 3, 2012
Pros: personal time management
Care manager position requires in-office work and completing home visits of consumers. Care managers follow CMS guidelines for contact with each individual. Typical work in the office includes problem solving, taking telephone calls, logging all appropriate information into database, and updating individual service plans. The most enjoyable aspect of the job are the professional relationships that are built when working with consumers. I personally learned a great deal about networking with services and working one on one with consumers. I enjoyed working with a variety of cultures and backgrounds. PCA is an excellent company that strives to keep older philadelphians in the community safely.
