Caregiver/Companion (Current Employee) – Delray Beach, FL – April 27, 2018
I work mostly afternoon and early evenings ,for four days a week.The job was easy. I did all the cooking and shopping. I cooked enough meals so we could freeze them for the days I wasn't there. I love to organize closets and cabinets to make things orderly and easy for the client. The hardest thing was finding things to do with the client to keep them happy and busy so they don't get bored. I learned to bring games and movies from the library.
meeting new people and talking
watching them in their old age and wishing I could do more.

PCAH is a wonderful organization. A typical day would consist of client care. Light housekeeping and possible errands. There are no co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the job is pleasing the client.

I was the care manager for Preferred Care at Home for over a year. i loved the job and my role as a care manager. The hardest part of the job was having to help the families transition their loved one into a higher level of care facility.
HHA (Former Employee) – Delray Beach, FL – September 12, 2017
I like working for this company because I was a independent contractor so I had control of my work load and the people where great to work with. the hardest part of this job was going to a place that you didn't know and the enjoyable part is learning different things from different people.
working as many hours as you want as long as it was available
Direct Service Worker (Former Employee) – Shreveport, LA – August 24, 2017
You never knew what you was walking into for your assignment. The report you receive was always different from what actually takes place at client's home. You are always told to do a little light house work and cook, but when you enter the client's home the client has a peg tube, turn q2 hours, bed bath, mopping, laundry etc.. The list goes on and on.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Cedar Park, TX – April 30, 2017
This is a fun fast paced place to work. The owner is very helpful and understanding of her employees. The hardest part of the job is watching the elderly that you are taking care of decline. I learned the importance of senior care while I worked for this company. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to hear the stories that all of the people I took care of had.
Company cares only about money and not care of clients..management does not listen to caregivers, accommodates unethical request of clients, inconvenient caregivers, lie about cases, lies to caregivers...
Excellent Company, but no benefits or advancement is available
Caregiver (Current Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – October 9, 2016
I love my job. I have had the pleasure of working with the same client for almost 2 years. I work 12 hour shifts, 4 one week and 5 the opposite week. The position is very emotional at times, due to the condition of the patients that we work with, and it can also be very physical, depending on their ability to walk on their own or if they need total assistance with transfers and everyday care. The company has offered very little training on any client or their specific condition and how to meet their needs, we pretty much read limited information on the client and go from there with them. That is why I feel blessed to have the same client, I know the ins and outs of his care and daily schedule. I feel like we have very little support from the office staff though, most of the communication is via text message or through the telephonic system, so we rarely interact one on one with anyone in our office. As far as pay goes, I am still receiving the same salary that I was hired in making (before they knew my work ethic and commitment to my job), which is very disappointing. I feel that they should do reviews every 6 months or even a year and then give some type of compensation based on each persons individual performance. We also do not have any type of benefits (vacation, sick leave, insurance, etc) these would be very much appreciated by all of the employees. Other than that, I totally love what I do and the company I work for. It is a very rewarding job, knowing that you make a difference in someone's life and that the care you provide makes their quality of life much more valuable.more... Unfortunately, I do not feel like there is any room for any advancement and I would love the chance to expand my knowledge and career options. I keep hoping that some things will change within the company and that it would be a place I could stay with long-term, into retirement, but benefits and pay raises are important because the price of living increases constantly and I need a position that can accommodate my needs and allow me to not just survive, but thrive. I am a hard worker and have the ability to become an important asset within a company that will allow me that opportunity.less
A regular schedule, including alot of overtime, with the same client
No raises, benefits or specific training on individual clients
Certified Nurse Aide (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – November 18, 2015
Most assignments were live in . Days started early. .I learned how to cook better. Management was engaged kept good communication. Coworkers were always on time and polite. .The hardest part of the job was when the assignment ended. The most enjoyable part of the job was listening to the life stories of the clients.
