Support from management

Sometimes getting ahold of management on the weekends is difficult because they have lives as well and their office hours are Monday - Friday. Otherwise my specific case manager generally always replies to me on the same business day.

Teamwork

Working in homecare you generally work alone and may only see a coworker when switching shifts. The communication during report has been a positive experience for me and getting the information i need in order to continue with the client.

Internal Communication

My specific case manager has been great with getting me the information or the answers I need. But other departments within the company I feel are lacking on communication at times.

Career Development

The most that I believe I could "grow" with the company is to get my registered nursing degree and get paid a little more. And then possibly become a case manager but I am not sure.

Overall compensation for your work

For the Lpn degree that I have, and the type of work this is. I do believe it is fair.

Office / Work Environment

It is homecare. It isn't up to the employer to make decisions about the environment that the client chooses to live in. Although, they have proven to maintain proper communication with the client's in order to suggest or request subtle changes within their home in order to maintain consistent staff.

Environmental Friendliness

There isn't much discussion that I am aware of on this topic. Although- we do use tablets in each client home to decrease the amount of paper charting we need to do.

Work-Life Balance

This agency does not pressure me to work additional hours / pick up shifts and allows me to take any/ as much time off as I choose to on a month to month basis.

Company Image

Homecare has been a nice change of pace considering my previous employers. But I am generally a multitasking "busy body" and therefore I do not believe homecare will be my end point for my career in the long run.

Workplace Safety

There are a few trainings that employees can attend in order to have better knowledge on certain aspects of the job.

Challenging Work

Getting to know a primary client is difficult initially because you have to adjust yourself to the client home and client themself. The difficult part for me is picking up shifts with other clients that I do not know. Walking into the home with very little information can be hard depending on the client needs and the way they choose to live.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better communication between case managers and different departments within the main office.

What I like about the company

After being off work for 3+ months with pregnancy complications and having a premature baby, this agency as well as homecare in general has provided me with flexibility on hours and availability without negative repercussions. It is generally a quiet and laid back environment and the case managers do their best to provide all of the information about clients, their homes, the way they like to live, their location etc. in order to find you a good fit.

What I dislike about the company

I feel there is a disconnect in communication at times with different departments within the main office that I wish would improve. Also- many times other case managers will message me about picking up shifts with their clients without checking my current work schedule. I don't like not replying but it gets a bit redundant telling multiple case managers that I am not available because I am working with my regular client during my same weekly scheduled shifts.

Company Culture

I feel very isolated in my job a lot of the time.

Support from management

I hardly ever see my supervisor and they are not good at communicating with me. I feel like I am burdening them whenever I reach out and the same goes with other management as well.

Teamwork

This is covered in training as well.

Freedom to work independently

I’ve been working independently for a very long time

Internal Communication

Communication could be better. I feel like I constantly have to reach out to others in order to get information across

Gender Equality

I think that this company treats women fairly.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I think that this company treats order employees fairly as well.

Career Development

You have to do training on your own or request training. It is very difficult to move up in the company.

Overall compensation for your work

I feel as though I should be paid more for the work that I do. I can barely pay my bills

Office / Work Environment

I work in my clients homes so it varies greatly but at times it is not comfortable. When I worked in the clinic it was very comfortable.

Environmental Friendliness

I am not sure about this question.

Work-Life Balance

It is difficult to have full-time work and for any missed sessions you have to make up all of the hours.

Company Image

No comment.

Job Security

Clients can cancel without warning and cases can and without warning. The job can be very unpredictable at times and if you don’t work then you don’t get paid for those hours.

Handicapped Accessibility

Although I am sure the company does not discriminate against those of different disabilities, I am on sure of how to answer this one.

Workplace Safety

You receive very minimal training on how to protect yourself when I client can become aggressive. I’ve been injured many times on the job

Challenging Work

My job is both physically and emotionally challenging at times.

Inclusive / Diverse

I do believe that this company definitely values diversity in the workplace as well.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop focusing on how many clients that you can get and focus on providing ample supervision as well as quality services to the clients that you do have. Consultants are being overworked due to their caseload which doesn’t allow them enough time to see all of their clients and properly help and supervise their technicians.

What I like about the company

I have worked with some great families and have made breakthroughs and helping my clients with their behaviors and becoming more independent.

What I dislike about the company

The company is very disorganized and there are a lot of problems with communication. Also I feel as though training is very poor and that the company does not care about their employees as much as they should
