Assistant (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 31, 2018
As an In-Home Healthcare Assistant, my job was to aid patients with bathing and grooming, prepare morning and afternoon meals to meet proper diet requirements, assist patients in taking medicines and proper dosages, as well as provide companionship for patients. The positive energy and warm spirits of the patients were the best.
I have worked for this Company a long time . Training is not maintained and the pay rate is way to low for the amount of Care given to the patient . I am Concerned about less training and worse health Care from Professionals

Work hours and days were never a guarantee because patients or their family could call at any time and cx for that day due to illness or a number of reasons. But when I did work an average day was usually going in and after getting a update on pt and how they have been since you last seen them I started with the house cleaning, and then bathing of the pt changing bedding and getting them settled and comfortable while I made dinner or lunch for them before leaving them set until I was due back.

Wonderful job. If you enjoy working with the elderly then this is your place. The clients were very loving people and enjoyed awesome care. It teaches one how to respect the elderly and learn history from them.

Being my own Boss and making my own schedule is very ideal for me right now. The union is great and the benefits are just what i needed. Depending on how many hours a recipient has i can adjust my work load and either add or subtract a client.
In Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Apple Valley, CA – March 27, 2018
In home health is not for everyone, I was a caregiver for two elderly women with considerable health problems. I would prepare meals, assist in bathing and dressing, assist with their medication, do their shopping and transport them to and from appointments.
rewarding to know you're helping someone
hard to separate emotions when they get attached, they can be very lonely
My company doesn't pay good,and we do more than CNAS do
