Companion Caregiver (Former Employee) - Herndon, VA - January 22, 2020
I enjoyed working with clients. It was a joy to provide care and companionship to an older generation and I learned so much from each of them. I did not enjoy working for the company. I felt disrespected and underpaid. The reason I left was because they could not provide me with a steady client load within a reasonable commute from my house. Also, I had started walking dogs part time and found that I was paid more for that than taking care of elderly clients.
I had to go to pt house And do PCP And HHA for the same pay , I have to change there beds make food service food to the pt give them bath remind them of taking new medications the first get that wash my hands and introduce myself.

Best work place ever ,worked in a couple of different agencies but nowhere else did I get such
Friendly co-workers ,very helpful employers and encouraging staffers like Home Instead .Love Home Instead Snr Care.
The management was not very understanding when you report concerns with the various clients and their treatment after you arrive for your shift.
You had clients that would not give you access and then report you never arrived. The management did not seem to care about the overall care of the clients. I feel there should be more follow up andspot inspections to cover the clients as well as the employee.
Response from Home Instead Senior Care: Thank you for your review of this Home Instead Senior Care franchise office. We appreciate your comments and your obvious concern for your clients. We will forward your remarks to the appropriate department.
I really enjoyed working with Home Instead as a part time caregiver.
you get to meet and work with really amazing people. The pay could be better. You get to select which clients you want to work with. I enjoyed being able to set my own schedule on the job.
So glad to hear you enjoyed some of the benefits of working for Home Instead Senior Care. Amazing co-workers, friendly clients, and being able to set your own schedule are important perks we are glad to offer to our employees.
I love working as an nurse aide no day is the same but this job has its challenges because the work takes a lot of your own energy. Being able to balance your work life and your own life can be a challenge because I have to armor up to deal with the demands of the family and the task at hand but I enjoy helping others. The hardest part of this work is when you see the client conditions decline because of the population we work with this is very typical so the work can have its sad moments. It takes a special individual to do this kind of work because you really have to give a lot of yourself to help someone who can't do for themselves. I love it just wish there was more room to advance in the company.
working with older client was good experience for me I learned a lot about def-rent cultures and back ground it it helped me see how it get when a person get older life change the value of life change I do
value those people and those years more than i did before . .
