What I like

Applied behavioral analysis is a very particular field and is done in an extremely particular way. Our supervisor had an allotment of $5 a month for reinforcers to encourage us to keep up the good work.

What I dislike

Constant policy changes that affect the ability of therapists to even get basic supplies when working with kiddos. Mileage was also taken away, so therapists that traveled a long distance to do their work had to quit. With ABA therapy you cannot change the therapist that kiddo has, so it’s adversely affecting clients. Most put over 500 miles in per week-and there’s no compensation for that anymore. We’re not even offered company cars. Since we provide therapy to children with behavioral problems, many have wound up in the emergency room as well.

Suggestions for improvement

Do not change policies frequently. Do not take away income from your employees. Keep in mind that their the boots on the ground. They are the ones that make you look good. If you treat them poorly, you’ll lose great people who are professionals/experts in the field.

The job is great. It does require a lot of patience, and depending on cases available some people need a 2nd job.

What I like

The job itself is rewarding, because you are able to see the difference you're making in these families lives.

What I dislike

I think they could do a better job of communicating with the employees that are in the field.

Suggestions for improvement

With all of the constant training that is required I think the pay should be a little higher.

Internal Communication

The communication between people in the field and people in the office is lacking, but it is improving

What I like

I feel like I’m really making a difference with the work I do. My boss is super awesome and helpful and my coworkers are mostly awesome people.

What I dislike

The hours need to be more stable and some people need to be more professional at work. Gossip should not be tolerated, as it creates a hostile work environment.

Suggestions for improvement

No gossip policy. Required response times, I’ve had one of my bosses not respond for weeks.

Some coworkers talk about others often. There’s stupid drama

If you're looking for something more laid back and easy going- homecare May be the right fit for you.

EmployeeWorked at Centria Healthcare LLC in Farmington Hills, MI at the time of review.

What I like

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

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.

Suggestions for improvement

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Workplace Safety

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
