Assist patient (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA – October 7, 2014
As a home health Aide, Employee cooperation, timeliness, work attendance , and efficiency are essential for this company success. This job requires a high standards of cleanliness and grooming. Because my personal appearance reflects on CHHS and should protect the professional image and credibility our clients and customer expect. I don't like different home places to work, driving client's to different places, but I like dealing with other client's, meeting other client's with their lovely family. What I don't like about this company is no benefits.
Service Coordinator (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – October 16, 2018
This company was bought and sold twice in two years. That means learning two different sets of standards and policies. More often then not, this company offers little guidance and assistance when you’re unsure of something. The software to update and maintain files is so out of date and not user friendly. This company does very little when it comes to screening applicants. They will allow you to hire any body.
No raises, poor communication, lack of leadership and lack of trust
Our company was bought by the LHC Group out of Lafayette, LA in April of 2018. Up until that sale, I was extremely satisfied with all aspects of my job. I had a very supportive and knowledgeable director. I worked a lot of hours, but the ability to work some of the time from home or other remote location, made up for the other demands. Once the company was sold, many of the Almost Family staff's positions were eliminated, including my entire department and director. I was kept on to handle all of the workers comp claims for 27 states and close to 15,000 employees.
Job security and the ability to combine local office reporting with remote work capabilities.
Once the company was sold, our entire department was desolved, I was kept on, I was given all WC claims for 27 states, working during all time zones 12 to 15 hours a day.
I started there at $8.00per hour as sn STNA and left making $8.50. They never spoke to me about anything that would advance me.
STNA (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – October 9, 2018
I stuck it out as long as I could for the sake of the clients. I traveled everyday. Some places I went were so deplorable. I kept telling my office manager this all the time. It wasn't until I had a panic attack thst they took an interest.
Almost Family is a good place to work with great people to work with, a lot of changes in the near future.
Care Coordinator (Current Employee) – Fort Wright, KY – September 17, 2018
I work with a great group of people in the office. My current boss is very understanding and helpful if there is anything that I needed explained to me such as how Medicaid works and things of that nature.
Office (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – September 11, 2018
I enjoy my job and what this company stands for. Not only do they offer amazing patient care but they offer career advancement to employees. With the recent merger, I see a lot of positive changes occurring and look forward to the future here.
In four years of employment I had two administrators and three different companies who owned us. Almost Family was the second company and within a year of being Almost Family we were bought out again. Almost Family had good training and a positive mission / goals for our branch and the company as a whole.
high turnover of administrators and staff in general
I like that the job is relaxed and slow paced but it does not make up for the fact that the pay rate is very low and most clients assigned are not permanent which brings a higher risk of not having worked for days/weeks.
RN Field Nurse (Former Employee) – New Port Richey, FL – August 16, 2018
Daily travel from home or office to patient's home, travel compensation changed according to gas/oil prices. Enjoyed the comradery with other field staff. Weekly staff meetings were quite helpful.
Enjoyed working with other Field staff
Office staff was not helpful, Would leave messages for certain people and they would not get the message, Communication was poor, They did not honor promises on times, dates and amount of time available to work which were promised on hire.
Almost Family has merged with LHC. This company micro manages its employees. There is always another report they want you to learn about and run as
Clinical Field Staff Supervisor (Current Employee) – Florida – August 13, 2018
Almost Family has merged with LHC. This company micro manages its employees. There is always another report they want you to learn about and run as if you really have time to even run a report. The work flow alone is overwhelming never mind the never ending phone calls, emails, and over all responsibilities of the position.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Adel, GA – August 13, 2018
Local office management was difficult to work with due to wrong people in job. Upper management changed often and communication was lacking. Enjoyed the actual work as long as I could stay away from the management drama.
