Staff (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNMay 30, 2018
Avoid this place. Everyone is leaving due to mandates. No help from HR department when asking common questions they should be able to answer. Micromanagement from
corporate staff who are driven to get rid of all staff and the nurses who are here. How can you run a corporation with no one who wants to work there?
Pros
Nice staff
Cons
Everything Else.

LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn Park, MNJanuary 7, 2018
Hands down the worse place for any nurse to work in. The training they offer you is being done by pool nurse because the company treats all there veteran nurses like dirt forcing them to be overworked, mandated and to quit! The company is run by a bunch of corporate insignificants who have never obviously worked in home care a day in their life! Then because of the lack of nurses the put lpn personal in rn roles. Have you ever heard of the board of nursing homeward bound? Not only that but have you heard about the scope of practice that lpns have? Better yet the lpn taking on the role should no better. This place is a absolute joke and I can't believe it still has its doors open! Low pay, mandating but yet they will pay pool nurses 50 and hour but not increase the staff that has worked there for years. Hmm I wonder why you can't keep people. Get your company together homeward bound before state does !

The most enjoyable part of the job
PCA Personal Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, MNOctober 26, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the day was get the clients out into the community and actually having fun with the clients. It was more like spending time with the family as opposed to working.

Avoid Homeward Bound if you can
LPN (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn Park, MNSeptember 13, 2017
I don't know who wrote the positive reviews but it was probably some corporate shill - they offer some of the lowest wages, even when compared to similar companies - they routinely (sometimes daily) mandate staff to cover shifts on an abnormally high level because they can't keep staff - you could be mandated to a facility where you have received zero orientation, working double shifts - or sometimes 18 hours or more while they look to mandate some other nurse - and then threatened with reporting you to the board of nursing if you tell them it's unsafe - they're corporate staff refuses to support nurses or direct care staff - really look somewhere else if you have any other choice -

Loved working in this field. Typical day includes working closely with clients to lead them on the right path in sobriety. Also completing charts to keep up with client records.
