Enjoyed the work, but it was difficult to manage the case load.
RN, Case Manager for hospice patients (Former Employee) – Hiawassee, GA – February 21, 2015
Very great place for nursing, but it was difficult to manage the case load because it was above what any individual person could manage. There were very large distances to travel and too few amount of time to do charting.

I enjoyed every single day with this company. The only reason I left was moving. It is time for me to start my career and I will never forget Regency. If you have the opportunity to work with them, do so, you will NOT regret it.

Tthe people working there will not help you and not a good team. Very rude and dont care. If they dont like you they will take away you patients and try to run you off. your pay check will never be right and will take week to be corrected.
case manager (Current Employee) – hiawasse ga – February 20, 2015
This has been a good community experience, I would like to go back into Administration in an acute care setting. I typically manage 15 patients and see them at least once per week in the home to manage all care and medications.
A typical day for me is getting up early every morning Monday through Friday starting my day at a patient's home or a facility. My co-workers are great to work with. The hardest part of the job is finding the locations were I'm suppose to be at. The most enjoyable part the job is helping people.
Manager (Current Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – March 27, 2014
Levels of management EVP vs VP have different goals. Operations and marketing speak well to another, but not well of each other. They often send different messages and they are very reactive VS proactive. Fix the problems prior to occuring, not after the fact. More apt to give a man a fish and feed him for a day, then to teach the man to fish and feed him for a lifetime. 100% turnover. Longest employed employee = 9 months
Case Manager full-time (Former Employee) – Aiken, SC – September 11, 2013
Great team to work with. Occasionally overwhelming with expectations at times unreasonable. May do caseload, admissions, and be on-call the same day. Not a great deal of support from management. The best group of nurses I've ever worked with.
Volunteer Coordinator (Current Employee) – South Carolina – August 3, 2013
It's hard to say what a typical day at hospice would be because you never know when you walk in the door what might happen with our patients that day. That is what I enjoy about my job, the different skills that I may need that particular day. I've learned that I need to be thankful for each day I am given as you never know what's in store. I manage 33 volunteers and they are a blessing to me. Their commitment and love that they show to the patients never ceases to amaze me. The hardest part of my job is talking to families while they have their loved one on hospice. The most enjoyable part are the beautiful letters and notes we receive from caregivers thanking us for taking such good care of their loved one.
Hospice Aide (Current Employee) – Columbia SC – February 11, 2013
travel from location to location Homes of patients or facilities. Assist patient with any ADL's that they need spend some time talking with patient and help patient feel comfortable and cared for. I have learned that although working in Hospice is a very difficult job to work in it is a very rewarding job. The hardest part of the job is seeing patients in so much pain and seeing the family in so much sorrow. The most enjoyable part of the job is making someone feel loved, cared about and happy during this time in their life.
caring for patients and making a difference for them
patient load goes up and down, not good travel reimbursement and last minute changes to your daily schedule
