Home Modification Office Manager (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – August 12, 2018
I know that during my time I improved the lives of people in their homes. The lack of raises and growth opportunities got old. The expect high output, with very little investment in what will make a company great: the front line employees. The employees in the offices deserve employment advancement opportunities, not to be made to feel like they're just a warm body in a seat.
PCA Personal Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – July 24, 2018
Great for meeting new people, hearing new stories and travel. Overall it's good if you like to work in this kind of setting. In home care in the bathroom, kitchen, etc. Almost like managing an extra life, and then some. The pay is not nearly enough but the hours and clients are flexible by what you prefer and can manage. You can get lots of hours if you have your own vehicle to travel in, and the hiring process is quick.
Personal Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – July 10, 2018
I loved doing patient care and helping the families with their loved ones. A typical work day was a work at your own pace for the comfort of the client you worked with. My supervisor always stayed on top of checking on the clients and knowing how things were going with their acceptance of my work. The hardest part was leaving the job to start school.
RN (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 5, 2018
Fun place to work. People friendly. Had a lot of good benefits. Had much better benefits than other places. Very competent staff. Had to travel but was fun. Weekly meetings on Mondays with good lunches. Supervisors were always concerned about staff and their workplace environment.
Productive fun place to work at with great people.
LVN-Intake Coordinator (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 5, 2018
My typical day was to unlock the office, have my numbers ready for the morning meetings. Take turns with the other nurses to go out and visit patients. I learned what team work is. Management was always ready to help regardless of what a person might need. Work place culture was followed, nobody would get easily offended if I wore something I believed in. The hardest part of the job was to not show up for work. The most enjoyable part of the job was to go to work.

Attendant (Former Employee) – Tyler, TX – July 2, 2018
My work days at Girling Health were somewhat unpredictable. I worked this the elderly and you never know what the day would hold. Some days were laid back just keeping the client company which is what most of them wanted and need mainly. Some days house work or out to doctors visits or to the store. I learned a lot of life lessons from many of my little people and all lessons made me wiser. I've learned that everyone suffers hardships and relearn that kindness is definitely the way. Management some were helpful and some should not have been working in the position they were in.. the most enjoyable part of the job was get to know and love the people I helped evetyday. The hardest was trying to get the supplies I need from the company in order to help the people I worked for.
Meeting people that would become life long friends.
Having to keep calling my job for gloves, encountering mean spirited people, no gas milage pay

It was more client based that made the job doable. Often they would have the cruelest people to work for and they wanted you to go to the end of the world and back for them. The you would come across the nicest people and it would be worth every penny.
When you can talk to your client to make the schedule better for the both of you.
