Overall, a great place to work. Very rewarding
Administrative Role (Current Employee) –  Berea, KYJune 20, 2018
Hospice Care Plus is a great place to work, if you enjoy serving those in your community. All staff are committed to providing exceptional care to the patients and families within our 6 county region.

It's a great place to volunteer, for anyone who is looking for service opportunities.

The most stressful part of the job is the fact that you're working with terminally ill patients, and the stress that this time in their life can bring to a family. Supporting and caring for those facing terminal illness can be emotionally taxing...so you've got to make sure you're taking plenty of time to care for yourself and maintain a good work/life balance, so that you don't "take work home" every night.

Some have noted in their reviews about the high turn around at Hospice Care Plus, specifically among clinical staff (RN's and Nurse Aides). From what I have observed, some staff start the on-boarding process and realize just how stressful it can be (at times) working in end of life care. I feel like those who leave only after a short time aren't really giving it a fair chance before making the decision to leave. We need folks who can come on board and feel confident in their ability to work with terminally ill patients, knowing that some days will be hard, but many days will be filled with joy!

At the end of the day, it is rewarding and community service oriented. You meet some great people, hear some great stories, learn a great deal about the lives of the patients, share laughs and tears, get some amazing hugs from some amazing folks, and feel good about what you've done at
  more... the end of each day!

I would recommend working for Hospice Care Plus!

A stressful environment, but can be rewarding
Nurse (Current Employee) –  Berea, KYMay 15, 2017
Hospice care is a stressful field with a very quick pace of patients admitted and dying. This makes it a tough environment to work in right off the top, but add in the not-for-profit board constantly changing, never ending regulations, money shortfalls and employee turnover in a constant training situation, and things are even worse. With these issues aside you can also feel personal reward for the work hospice does in the community and the prestige that comes with being associated with a well-respected organization. The pay cannot be very competitive, so the board tries to compensate with time off benefits.
Pros
Great Time-off benefits, decent insurance.
Cons
Stressful, Constant state of change

The work is very rewarding but CEO expects too much.
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Berea, KYOctober 12, 2016
Typical day is going to visit patients, making calls, doing notes. However some have to drive 3 to 4 counties which is impossible. with number of people to see and calls from all counties. Good people work there that do the actual service to the clients. Management is clueless and wants people to work all the time.
Pros
Being able to help families through a difficult time
Cons
No respect, no raises, . Check the ads. There is always a job there because people keep quiting

Pharmacy Driver (Former Employee) –  Berea, KYOctober 16, 2014
Daily responsibility of checking yourself to see if you have everything you need to deliver satisfaction to the patients. I learned to double check before I left the office. Managed my route to be the most effective and timely. Obtained trip information before leaving. Co-workers could be so helpful in many ways such as passing safety information to you before you go to these residents homes. Hardest part of this job was hitting the road in all worst of weather. The most enjoyable was knowing I delivered everything that patients needed for the day and I was safely arriving back to office.
Pros
Good benefits, Pto
Cons
15 year employed and laid off permanetly because of budget cuts.
