I ve never met a more commited Therapy staff than this group of women. Our patients were our top priority.
PRN (Former Employee), Washington, mo – September 10, 2014
It was fun going to work in the morning. Everyone went the extra mile for each other including the nursing staff. Unfortunately , the company lost the contract with the nursing home and was unable to place most of us in another location.
Director of Rehabilitation (Former Employee), TX – August 8, 2014
Cons: no support, all about $$$
Worked for them for 10 years, watched it hit rock bottom. Used to be a terrific company, now it's all about $$$$$. I understand it's a business, but you have to have empathy for your employees, which they do not.

In a profession in which every single day involves many challenges, whether it be with a patient or with nursing or with an unreasonable family member, support is essential to maintain your sanity. in my 5 years at RehabCare I have had the opportunity to work with many wonderful therapists and be lead by a variety of managers with very unique management – more... styles. Overall, I have had a fulfilling and stimulating professional life as part of the rehab team. – less
Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (Former Employee), San Diego, CA – July 18, 2014
Cons: a lot of driving
I worked in a Home Health in which I was responsible for educating patients and family members to safely assist with all Activities of Daily Living. My co-workers were very friendly and we meet on a bi-wwekly basis for case conferences and employee training classes.The most enjoyable part of the job was the flexibility I had with my schedule.
Occupational Therapist (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – July 17, 2014
Pros: free parking
Cons: no paid holidays off, horrible rehab manager, unprofessional work environment
Basically the management ruined this facility and created a horrible work environment. Majority of co-workers were unprofessional due to the lack of leadership and management. Therapists are not respected and work productivity standards are unrealistic.
Program Director (Former Employee), Niles, MI – July 3, 2014
As part of the Rehabcare team, I was responsible for scheduling, payroll, directing team meetings, reporting progress to SNF staff members, communicate with physicians and nurses on regular basis to optimize care for each patient in Rehab, manage Medicare minutes, give tours of facility for potential residents and family members. This was a very schedule – more... oriented position and required being well organized to keep department productive and positive for patients and all who visited. – less
Atypical day consists of treating approx. 10-12 patients in a SNF for a variety medical diagnosis. I enjoy working with the geriatric population, and have done so for several years. You must be talented in areas of communication, as well as a team player to make it successfully in this environment.
Ongoing education thru frequent training opportuniites.
Physcial Therapist (Former Employee), Louisville, KY – June 19, 2014
Pros: free company items: mugs, shirts, coolers, pens etc.

Challenging caseload of varied rehab diagnoses. I enjoyed supervising PT students,. The management team was supportive of staff job/life balance needs. I enjoyed special events at the facility such as Holidays and contests of various kinds.
Speech Language Pathologist (Former Employee), Midwest – June 18, 2014
Pros: great coworkers
Cons: if you lack integrity, this is the place for you.
Management exhibits a great lack of respect for therapist's education, experience, and clinical judgement. Productivity standards are unreasonable and I personally was berated and threatened to treat residents that did not require a skilled service or to keep resident's on caseload longer than necessary. It seems that the people with the least amount – more... of integrity climb up the corporate ladder. If you lack integrity and ethics, this is the place for you. – less
Speech-Language Pathologist (Current Employee), Eau Claire, WI – May 28, 2014
This company treats you like meat. They will drop you on a dime, switch/give away your hours without notice, but yet expect you to work whenever and wherever they need you on less than 8 hours notice. Forget having a life outside of work. Forget being respected by your boss. Forget being "Full-time." Forget loyalty. Working for this company only gets – more... its owners richer. – less
