RN Case Manager (Current Employee) – River Edge, NJ – 29 September 2016
In a typical day I go to 3-4 different places to see patient. I enjoy visiting with my patients and bringing them comfort. I like being there for the families for support. I have been on both sides of Hospice having family members on Hospice before so I know what the families are going through. I get along with all my co-workers. I have peers calling me for help and to run questions by me.
Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Dresher, PA – 3 November 2015
Professional and also very stressful workplace. Had to travel to 5 different locations during the day. Sometimes would receive 7-8 patients a day. The staff was very nice and helpful. The case manager was a wonderful person. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping people.
Good relationship with staff and patients.
Constant Rushing and movement. Sense of instability.
RN Case Manager (Current Employee) – Shoemakersville, PA – 20 October 2015
The management team make working there a great place to work. The upper management will work with employees to resolve matters whether professional or personal to create work/life balance. The mileage reimbursement used to be a nice perk but not anymore. Mileage reimbursement is only compensated for driving between patients. Compensation for RN Case Manager is higher than hospital salaries in this area of North East, PA. Benefits are very costly. Little autonomy
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Dresher, PA – 28 March 2015
I have worked for this company for 3.5 years. It is a very rewarding job in the sense that I give quality one on one care to people who don't have much time on this earth. My co-workers and I work incredibly good together. When we cover for each others patients, our communication skills with each other are impecible. We want to me sure every person we see recieves the best care they can. Sometimes my bosses can be hard to work with, only because they don't always understand the amount of traveling we do in the course of one day. I would have to say the hardest part of my job is when a patient of mine declines or passes away. You create this close relationship with them and then one day they are no longer with you. Another hard part of my job is all the traveling I endure during a day. I am sometimes traveling up to 2 hours to see a patient. That gets tough to do day in and day out.
Chaplain/Administrative Clerk (Current Employee) – Stockbridge, GA – 29 December 2014
Call caregivers, set times to meet, discuss plan of care, with staff. I learned to give them my best care and to do what I can today by not putting it off till tomorrow. Hardest part seeing them suffer. Enjoyable I was able to give support during the most difficult time.
Chaplain Resident (Current Employee) – Dresher, PA – 26 October 2014
My days are never the same, as there are always Patients that may need an unscheduled visit or the Office will need to redirect my scheduled visits for a situation or assigned task that needs my attention. I work Monday through Friday, and have On-Call responsibilities that involve 4 weeks per year, covering the evenings from 5pm-8:30am the following day, and am On-Call the entire weekend of that week.
Management does a good job of making sure the employees are not being overwhelmed, and yet keep us focused on the main goal of our Company, Patient Care and Support for the Patients and their Families.
I have learned how to balance my time while making sure the responsibility of providing excellent care/support for our Clients is maintained. The hardest part of my job is the emotional drain it places on all of the employees. Caring for dying Patients as a Hospice Chaplain is a burden and a privilege.
The most enjoyable part of my job is spending time w/the people I am called to minister to. Regardless of the issues and outcome of the "journey", I am always the beneficiary of the Family's and Patient's impact on my life, and I am the better for it.
Loved the patients and families I was humbled to serve.
Pastoral Care Counselor (Former Employee) – Hamburg, PA – 22 February 2014
My position as Chaplain was a ministry to companion patients and their loved ones on their final journey here on earth and offer spiritual care and support. I was honored to walk beside them at such a difficult time. My teammates were the most compassionate, loving people I have ever met. The management team at our local office was also exceptional.
