Gives great personal satisfaction when helping patients.
Volunteer Coordinator (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – August 25, 2018
Typically my day would start in the office with administrative duties, then out in the field doing patient volunteer assessments. I learned many new regulations on setting up their volunteer program. The management was very open-minded to new ideas for growing the volunteer program. The workplace culture was very good, the company has a great vision and compassion for their patients & families. The challenging part of this position is recruiting new volunteers. The most enjoyable part of this job was the team has a good sense of communication on a daily basis. Also, they are very rewarding to the employees (ie accolades to employees for going over and above, celebrate employee birthdays, office lunches/breakfast for office fellowship).
Administrator - very open minded to new ideas to grow volunteer program.
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – September 12, 2018
The management team obviously needs to be revamp. I feel that my job description was not clearly define and I was asked by upper management to perform job duties that were clearly out of my profession scope. The hardest part of the job as a MSW was the lack of professional autonomy within the agency. The management/ leadership seemed to have implicit bias with their recommendations for patients/families. However the most enjoyable part of the job was working with patients/families whom appreciates the service that was being provided.
The patients and families
Job description not clearly define and lack of professional autonomy
There's much better out there in every aspect even to patient care.
Business Office Manager (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – July 8, 2018
Management is in it for themselves and will throw you under the bus to advance or keep their jobs. It's quite obvious that they toss you a couple of peanuts thinking that that gesture will keep you happy for example your Christmas bonus is $25 or $50 for all your hard work throughout the year. In the meantime, the management and executives receive bonuses on the thousands. It's insulting. The patient care is less than stellar and documents falsified to pass state inspections.
Co-workers are team players
Very poor management, Uninvolved executives, Very poor patient care
RN Case Manager (Current Employee) – Albany, GA 31701 – February 14, 2018
Typical day includes team conference calls to review all team members previous day; Visit patients to assist with their care, provide care, support to family and caregivers; admit patients to hospice care, act as on call on nights and weekends. Very rewarding work, however, the case management throughout the week combined with busy on call weekends lends to severe physical and emotional burnout to which the company did nothing to correct.
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Cartersville, GA – June 8, 2017
Most things are good with this company. I enjoyed it. Pay could have been better. I enjoyed working out of my car. The per diem was good. Regular pay plus per diem was really good. Being a single mom my bills were always paid.
Chaplain (Former Employee) – Cartersville, GA – May 14, 2015
Being a hospice chaplain was very rewarding. It is a special gift to be able to spend time with a family and their loved one at such an intimate and devastating time in their lives. I had to travel at times over 50 miles one way to a patients home. but I learned that people appreciate your efforts and sincerity. I was able to manage my time and travel in a way that my clients did not feel obligated to me. Most of my co workers were supportive. The hardest part was saying good-by, and also the traveling. The most enjoyable part was listening to the stories.
Was being able to make own schedual. Also the christmas gifts were appreciated.

At first i enjoyed working fro this company and then it all changed once i was there a wile. i liked the people i worked with but when i got let go because i had my own family to take care of i was disappointed. all i needed was that one day off and she told me if i didn't come in then i didn't have a job and i told her i wasn't going to able to come and so she said i guess you made your choice. i was angry because i picked up others slack and the one time i need to be off i was denied.
