PT (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 27, 2016
Poor managers at all levels with poor people skills, big egos and act superior to staff. Encourage treatment of patients for high minutes despite the fact that they were inappropriate to begin with. Expected to treat them for months despite poor or no progress. Once you discharge them, be prepared to see them again in a month or two. If you don't keep your caseload high, you will be sent home. Never enough computers for documentation. In order to be productive, you will need to work through your unpaid lunch and frequently off the clock at the end of the day. Your clinical judgement is not respected, it's all about making money. Many new grads with big loans to pay back who just do as told in order to keep job. Therapists must make decisions that challenge their ethical and moral beliefs.

Take care of senior citzens in there home, assist with cooking and cleaning, medication reminders, and assistant with meds, help in and out of the shower, help in the bed or out of wheel chairs if client needs it. Fill out daily paper, make sure yiu stay your whole shift
this company is very nice to work for. however, if you are not a therapist, I don't recommend working in a non-therapist position in clinical settings. I do not feel that the aides are given equal benefits as the therapists are given. it is unfair that the aides who are paid less, pay more for their benefits than the therapists do.
Caregiver (Current Employee) – Elizabethtown, KY – September 13, 2015
I enjoyed working here; however, I felt very on my own a lot of the time to just figure situations out. I do not feel like there was very much room for advancement with this company. The staff is very friendly.
HOME HEALTH AIDE (Former Employee) – Elkin, NC – November 20, 2015
This was a home-health job, so my work was more independent in that notion that I didn't communicate with the office staff daily. When I did go into the office or have a concern, they were positive, upbeat and always helpful.
Working with Tender Touch was one of the most enjoyable jobs I have had to date. All the therapists and staff were very accommodating and encouraging. A typical day included gathering the patients and assisting the therapists with their daily routines and exercises as well as clerical duties such as filing and answering phones.
