I enjoy helping my patients! I’m blessed to be able to. I want to get all the experience and knowledge In as many departments as possible. Learning new things to help others, being able to let the patients go knowing you have give them all the kindness they deserve . Very fast pace at all times with quilaty work.
A place to give the terminally ill care and security
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Ashland, KY – February 6, 2018
The caregiving in the security in this company is great, sometimes the office staff was more business than understanding the care that was needed. Overall I enjoyed working here, as you went home to home and didn't have anybody looking over your shoulder all the time.
It was okay when work was fairly spread equal between me on other drivers in co workers
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – February 6, 2018
I wish I could be there still but my years in service isn't a enough to achieve or to advance with the company with in so I had to make a difficult choice but still was very thankful for being employ I learn in work well at my very best in I will take with me where ever I go.

I would still work for the company, assisting patients with their last stage of life is a very rewarding job. Having the Home Team, Facility Team and the Hospice House in Hughson CA. are all excellent places to expand your experiance as a nurse.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Hughson, CA – December 4, 2017
Very physical job, Under-staffed. Burn out happens fast. The people making the difference in the patients lives, are the ones being over-looked. As with many companies, the people that run the show, are the ones that have the easiest and highest paying positions. The corporate employees either forgot or don't care about how much the employees on the front line actually do, and aren't helped and appreciated enough.
doing good for people in need
selfish in staffing enough employees and pay for them
Nurse (Current Employee) – Modesto, CA – December 2, 2017
95-99% perfect...any complaints pale in comparison to the benefits and the fulfillment from such an honorable position. You wouldn't believe how many skills you use in end of life care as everyone has different needs-problems and the skill it takes to do it site on scene. Acute care is probably easier but you lose the flexibility and independence hospice has. I love it.
Pay, benefits, middle management is awesome and very supportive, challenging patients to keep u sharp, keep skills up, opportunities for free CE (meal included) events and more
Upper management has unreasonable expectations/does not understand positions, EMR program is tedious and slow, car gets dinged and broke into making pt visits, no longer provide CEUs regularly for employees, just the occasional ones offered to the public after hours/weekends
Co-workers and management show compassion and understanding not only for patients but for each other. Loved working here. Team/family atmosphere. Challenging role dealing with patients and families but co-workers and managers help to make it a very enjoyable workplace.
Vice-President/ Chief Information Officer (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – September 15, 2017
Changes in leadership change the environment of the organization where it became cut-throat. you come to work fearing your job. atmosphere became dull and staff where unhappy. The hospice heart was no longer there. There is no compassionate for employees. Clinical Staff are excellent leader leads by fear.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Ozark, AL – July 3, 2017
Taking care of terminal ill patients in home setting. Very rewarding but also very stressful. You have to be able to make changes at unplanned times to accommodate patients. Management was wonderful in being supportive. The driving from place to place gets old some days.
I enjoyed working with the doctors. I was able to work with the Chief Resident at Shands Hospitalto create simulations used for training other physicians. I wrote and acted in them. It was very fun. The competition was tough and I had to work very hard to maintain and increase my market share. My manager taught me alot about the industry as well as sales and marketing for a non-profit organization. She was great to work for.
Job culture was great and being independent lead to my success.
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Salem, OH – March 15, 2017
I absolutely loved my job with Community Hospice. However, with management, the right hand did not follow what the left hand instructed me to do. Hence, it all rolls down hill and no one would defend you and it was an useless battle. It was all about referrals. Other former employees feel the same way. Patients and families were great and made it worth the other nonsense
Chaplain (Current Employee) – New Philadelphia, OH – March 2, 2017
Some of the greatest people that I have ever worked with. Even on a coworkers worst day they are still better than most. The dedication of the employees is noticeable at every level from patient care through administration.
