Supportive aid (Current Employee) – Haverhill, MA – January 5, 2016
the job required a lot of travel time to the client's home. Every arrival is a challenge since you never know the mood of the client but, its mostly good. I had learned to support, and care for elderly people in a very careful and respectful way. The supportive team and awesome, not only with the clients but with the aids in general. As well as co-workers, always willing to help in the arise of an emergency. The hardest part of this is the travel time to some long distance locations, but above all, every aspect of this job is enjoyable and very satisfying.
One typical day of job is going to the patients homes and give personal care of hospice patients, long bed resp patients, medication administration based on patient needs. assistance with activities of daily living, transferring and transportation if is need it.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Grand Blanc, MI – December 28, 2015
Everything is great about this job. You have very nice and sweet elderly. Awesome management and staff. Very nice co-workers but then you have some co-workers that just shouldn't be working in health care.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – December 22, 2015
While at the patients home you can learn a lot of new things interesting storys. I learned how to be a good listener and to cook new foods.The management is so nice they really care about you and your needs. The hardest part of the job was having to leave a patient.
Recruiting Coordinator (Current Employee) – Edmond, OK – December 17, 2015
This has by far been my favorite company to work for. The only reason I am not staying with them is the pay rate and the fact that I don't like the on call aspect of the job. But the owners and the people I work for are the best and it was a heartbreaking decision to move on,
caregiver (Current Employee) – Kingwood, TX – November 24, 2015
you never know what to expect working with dementia patients. you know your doing a good job that really makes you feel good when you go home. its just very hard to get close to someone that is very old because they can decrease very fast.
Senior Care, Administrative Assistant Scheduler (Former Employee) – Rome, GA – November 18, 2015
It's an ok place to work but I wouldn't recommend for someone of color to work in the office. They really don't appreciate their caregivers even though truth be told they are the backbone of the company. It's a lot of work for not enough money and when you have to do on-call at night you don't get paid by the hour just a flat of 25 dollars a night. I didn't like doing on-call because it kept you from being able to do spend time with your family and you didn't sleep well at night.
I enjoy being part of a team that involves other caregivers and families of the clients.
Caregiver/Companion (Current Employee) – Canton, OH – November 13, 2015
This company is family oriented, they work around your school and family schedule as much as possible. They have many college students as employees because of the flexibility and the respect with which they treat their employees.
I enjoy interacting with the clients and their families.
The nature of the job is that older people get ill, have to go to the Hospital or expire as part of the normal life span.
Administrative Assistant/Caregiver (Current Employee) – 1818 New York Ave NE, Washington DC 20002 – November 13, 2015
Worked on computer with Home Trak, tracking caregivers whereabouts and who was available for work. Grading potential caregivers papers. Answered phones and directed to proper co-worker. In meetings, i was the one who recorded the meeting minutes.
All around very enjoyable.
There was nothing hard about the job only making photo copies of potential caregivers records which were not always there.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – November 7, 2015

Caregiver (Former Employee) – Jackson, MI – October 26, 2015
Loved the bosses. They were very supportive and understanding. They truly care about their clients. A typical day at work was going from one clients house to the next. Taking care of all of their needs from personal hygiene to housework. I have learned that it takes a great amount of self discipline to take care of the very personal needs of others. I trained many of my co-workers to take on specific tasks that I carefully completed everyday. In this job everyone is responsible for their own clients so there's not much interaction amongst co-workers. The hardest part of the job was not knowing what to expect when sent into clients homes. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I was helping people in need.
