An extremely demanding work environment both personally and professionally.
Administrative Assistant - Scheduling (Former Employee), Halifax, NSMarch 20, 2014
Pros: work to support some of your communities most vulnerable people
Cons: total lack of work-life balance
This organization is a 24-hour environment. While this level of commitment from staff ensures top-tier attention and maximized individual efforts are directed towards outstanding client care, this expectation of round-the-clock dedication without clear dictates of availability or unavailability is not for the faint of heart.

Self-sufficient work life which allows for close bonds to be established with clients
Caregiver (Current Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 18, 2013
Pros: develop close bonds to clients.
Cons: do not get paid by the hour for a 24hr shift or for overnight shifts (fixed rate).
One-on-one compassionate care to an older adult living at home.
Working with individuals who have dementia provides the opportunity for the caregiver to develop strong interpersonal skills such as empathy, patience, creativity in patient care, validation of patient's feelings, and communication with family members.
A caregiver's journal is present in – more... every client's home which is required for the caregiver to document the client's health status, and any pertinent information.
Depending on the client's health needs, there may be more than one caregiver working with a client, in which case communication between co-workers is needed. This is done through the caregiver's journal, when caregiver's meet at the beginning/end of their shift, or through the agency's office. – less

Ok place, lack of organization and communication
Home Helper (Former Employee), Woodstock, ONNovember 12, 2013
Cons: not enough hours at times
In home care communication is required. When you call and need to explain, you should be able to talk to one person and get it sorted out not go through 3 people in the office. The teamwork with someone with 24hr care was amazing. Most are not PSW's like I because it's non medical it's not important to have. Being able to help my client transition back – more... into being home from hospital, getting to know them on a more personal level. – less

A typical Day as a Nurse
Registered Practical Nurse (Former Employee), torontoMarch 11, 2013
Pros: long hours therefore you make more money, and i get to utilize all my skills
Cons: when the hours get cut
I would normally wake up at 6 am and make my way to work. Once I get there i would first do my round of the floor and make sure all the resident are okay and alive. I would also check the charts to see if there is any information, or change in the patient's status or if there was an incident. Then I will begin to prepare the morning medications. While – more... the patient's are having breakfast or making there way down to breakfast I will start administering the medications to about 25-30 residents. After the medications have been administered i will begin to document and start preparing the afternoon medications and continue with assessments and documentations. – less

Good Manangement and very nice employers.
Caregiver (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MBFebruary 11, 2013
Pros: free trips
Cons: regular time
Its a very nice and good experience for me to work and working at my current company.The management is also very nice and very kind and also my co - workers. Though the hardest past is when you care for one client for a long time and he/she lost ( passed away) is so sad and you have to start all over again to a new and different clients again. The most – more... enjoyable part of the job is when you go and accompany you clients to different places all over Winnipeg from the mall to museums,etc. – less

Good job if you are flexible with time
Caregiver (Former Employee), Calgary, ABMay 16, 2012
Pros: fun things with seniors
Cons: hours vary, some days you work 12 hours, other days, only 3
I liked this job, but I found that I seemed to always be on call which I wasn't aware of. I would get calls at 7 asking me to be at work by 8. You can say no to jobs, but if you say no too many times they stop calling you. Also, I was having to drive over an hour to some of my shifts that were only 3 hours long so I felt that I was spending more on – more... gas than I was getting paid. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the seniors I worked with and doing things with them. – less

I have loved working for Home Instead Senior Care as it offers flexible hours, training, rewarding friendships with co-workers and clients. Paid training is also available and the company shows their appreciation for you, in the forms of gifts and awards. They make you feel part of a team, a family.

Outstanding company
Caregiver (Former Employee), Monroe,Charlotte,and Fayetteville, NCJuly 9, 2014
Pros: learning different things from each new client, flexible work schedule, and the stories!!!
Cons: having to say goodbye
Home Instead is the best company I have had the privileged of working for. Each office being individually owned, still have the same goal in mind. I myself have worked for three different Home Insteads throughout NC. Each office does things a little bit differently, but one thing stays the same and that is the warmth you get from staff and management. – more... I have learned so much through this company, one in which is to be flexible in care techniques. Everyone has their own routine, you have to mold to the client for each individual assignment. The hardest part about this job was having to say goodbye. The most enjoyable part would be the memories made and the connections you make over the years. The great stories, cooking recipes, and each individual personality you get to bond with. Simply a great experience all the way around. – less

Staffing Coordinator (Current Employee), Burlington, NCJuly 9, 2014
Pros: positive work environment
Cons: no healthcare benefits, salary below expectations in consideration of job responsibilities
Working as Staffing Coordinator at Home Instead entails major responsibility. Maintaining hundreds of schedules requires close attention to detail and the ability to successfully multi-task. Most days are extremely fast-paced. My co-workers and I work together wonderfully to operate the office. The hardest part of my job is the pressure of having to – more... staff a client's schedule as soon as possible with a last-minute deadline. The work I do allows people to maintain their independence and quality of life, which is the most rewarding aspect. – less

Pros: helping people
Cons: no breaks
The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the smile on peoples faces from helping them. The hardest part of my job is the constant changing work places traveling for sometimes only 2 hours worth of work.
