Do yourself a favor and move on..
RPN (Former Employee) –  Kitchener-Waterloo, ON8 August 2017
Awful communication, high turn over. Expected to be available from 8-4:30 WITHOUT compensation even if there are <3-4 visits available (for which you are paid a hourly rate). Very low hourly rate for an RPN. Always watching pay stubs for mistakes. Never-ending schedule issues, leading to missed visits. Little to no support from management. try calling he office lol you're stuck in automated voicemail loops, hope its not an emergency!They lose your faxes, reports, and supply orders, leaving you scrambling to make deadlines and get supplies to the patients without support, or even an apology. If you like being treated like a number, being disposable, or working at the bottom of the pay scale, with no respect or support, this is the job for you!
Pros
Zero, zilch, nada
Cons
All the cons.

terrible place to work
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON2 August 2017
They make them their company sound above par compared to other home care companies; however, they fail to meet that. They add clients to your rooster with out asking, or giving notice. When you ask why, they tell you "oh we were stuck and didn't have anyone" regardless if you have other plans such as another job, family, or appointments. They have no issues making you work 7 days a week for more then a month straight with no compensation. Salary wise, they are the one of the few higher paying employers when it comes to home care, but they will not compensate for your extra time put in. You have to push to have access to the benefits you pay in to, or you won't be able to use them. There is no room for advancement and no raises are given. Management sucks. They tell you they support you while you are in the field; however, if you are put into an environment where your safety is compromised, they will tell you that you still have to go there for cont' visits because no one else will and they need them done or CCAC will cancel their contracts. Overall, its not worth the stress, although you meet some lovely clients.
Pros
Most clients are amazing
Cons
long hours, zero support, no compensation

Develop therapeutic relationship with clients that i see on a regular basis
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON20 June 2017
It is a very rewarding job. I worked with the company for 5 years. My exposure to the community gave me confidence to meet new clients on a regular basis on my own. You don't see your coworkers most of the time because you are out there by yourself. The hardest part of the job is having clients that live far apart from each other. It is very expensive to work with clients that live far because of gas and care maintenance wise takes a lot of toll. The most enjoyable part is experience, the culture and the families that you meet along the way.

Flexible Scheduling
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Varied15 May 2017
Perfect job for a nursing student - hours are flexible (as few or as many you'd like per day), pay was above minimum wage, and it provided great hands on experience related to my field of study. However, it is hard to get full-time hours, as you need to factor in travel time between paid client hours.

It's a good place
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Brantford, ON24 April 2017
I do my call ahead to my clients. I only work in the evenings and they are not high maintenance compared to working days. Everyone is very enjoyable and pleasant. The hardest part sometimes is figuring out the client likes and dislikes for supper!
Pros
Working alone
Cons
A lot of driving

Terrible Employers
Homemaker (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 March 2017
ParaMed claims to be operating for a long time as a health care provider and yet they don't know the policy on whether employees are paid for jury duty. They don't care about their employees. All they care is profit. They should get their license for operating suspended because they treat employees like trash. Management are not supportive to employees.
Pros
Nothing positive
Cons
Everything for them is profit

Clueless management, unruly employees
Clerical coordinator (Current Employee) –  Niagara, ON17 February 2017
Worst job I ever had. Management unprofessional and disengaged with the employees. Absenteeism isn't managed, office staff constantly calls in sick, resulting in snowball effect down the chain. Favoritism runs rampant as well as bullying amongst office staff. HR is non existent. Disgusting work environment.
Pros
Unlimited free sick days!!
Cons
Mismanaged employees

Fantastic organization for autonomous practice
REGISTERED NURSE (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON17 January 2017
- self-scheduling of patients for daily visits
- management very approachable and welcoming
- ability to guide your own practice as long as policies and procedures are being met
- on-call shifts 16:30-08:00 and then a full day of work the next day
- more on-call shifts than I anticipated and desired to work (very restricted in what you can do while you're on-call since you have to be available to see patients if you can't troubleshoot over the phone)
Pros
self-scheduling of daily patients
Cons
too many on-call shifts and too long of on-call shifts
