It's very rewarding. The clients become family.
PCA (Former Employee) – Billings, MT – October 27, 2018
I loved my hours, pay and benefits until the state decided to cut home health care. It was sad because people who lived in their homes had to go to nursing homes, employees lost almost all of their hours (me), if not their job. The hourly pay stayed the same, but it's not near enough. In 11 years, my pay only increased by $2/hr. total.
I liked the health care I had through the union, but if you don't work enough hours, you lose it. The company changed every year, too.
I wrote a lot of 'buts', but... that has to do with the union or the state. The job itself, I loved doing, and it made me be an even better person.
If you love taking care of and helping others, this job is for you. The clients really do appreciate you and they become like your family.
