PSW (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 March 2017
I love to got up to gp to work meet my client ,the client are great and i dont mind travel from client to client . Management is terrible ,they dont have respect for the workers ,if you are sick with cold the still want to send you to work with the client and if you refuse then they cut your hours , they dont even respond to your emails or return phone call unless it benefits them.
Health Care Aide (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 27 August 2016
A typical day at work was when I met my first Resident, and that was my first day at work in Canada as a Health Care Aide. The client appreciated my services to her. At the end of my shift with her, she offered me money, but I refused because it was against our job ethics. As I Left, she called my office to complain about my refusal to take money. She further told the office that the kind of services I rendered to her worth compensation. My office was happy at that, and called me to the office to show appreciation.
From that incident, I learnt it is always good to put in your best at work to make your Clients/Residents happy.
Management is perfect. They appreciate staff dedications at work..
Good team co-workers.
The hardest part of the job is driving from home to home to render care.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when Clients recommends hard workers to the Employers.
Excellent management is friendly and smart at the same time.
Community Health Worker (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 19 February 2017
This is very good in all respects, company. Excellent management is friendly and smart at the same time. Working here, since graduating from the University Canada West Nursing Assistant, I received a huge amount of practical skills and additional knowledge in this field. I have very good relations with colleagues, management and clients as well. The only one fact makes me look for more stable job - lock of stability. I would like to have a more predictable life and the opportunity to build my plans, to work a certain shift in a certain place, for a certain time.
Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 17 December 2016
This by far has been the worst Job/location I have ever HAD. MANAGEMENT is unprofessional and unsupportive. Very high stress and you are damned if you ask for guidance or any type of help by management. The turnover rate explains it all however management seems to turn a blind eye to the obvious, also applies to many accepts in the office.
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) – York Region – 10 January 2017
I found the York Region location to have issues with the overall management of the company, with things such as scheduling. I found my scheduled times often did not allow enough time for commuting. Overall the work and pay was good for a PSW job.
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 7 March 2017

positive work environment
just driving if the weather is bad from consumer to consumer
Family Support Worker (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 30 June 2016
I worked at WeCare for just over a year, they are THE WORST COMPANY I have ever worked for. Terrible management, terrible communication, SEXIST!!! I was legitimately told I could not be promoted due to the fact I was a girl, and THEY NEEDED A MALE.... even though the current person in that position was female?. The hours are ridiculous, making people work 24 hours straight. The management there was terrible, no managing experience or people skills, would gossip about other employees to other staff. They have staff who overuse prescription drugs (and other drugs) AT WORK, and have done nothing to penalize them. Clients who are legit living with mould in their homes. I would become anxious at the end of every shift because there was such high turnover that staff would often be forced to stay due to other staff calling in sick and not showing up. Stay away.
client (Former Employee) – Fraser Valley – 21 May 2014
No shows of staff when scheduled for elderly, sick people whom are forced to be at home despite their debilitating condition and whom are abused emotionally and physically by not receiving help when need it. New staff is untrained, making clients frustrated. Staff leaves the company constantly and changes availability in the last minute. Absenteeism is high. The work is attributed without respect to workers location. The salary is minimum wages. Workers are exposed to upset clients, due to management not handling schedules and communication well and lying to both clients and personnel.
Client Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 17 June 2016
Very high turnover of staff Very unorganized I feel bad for the clients the most, they're the ones that suffer from unorganized management, over worked CA'S and false promises and unrealistic expectations when they hire the company.
Scheduler (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 23 March 2016
Terrible management, extremely rude to staff and no team work. No Training they expect you to know everything. It's a fast paced job. If you are new your not going to be given a chance unless you know the managers. I honestly had never worked in a worst environment.
Enjoyable to work with clients who, many times, were pretty much housebound but were very enjoyable people to talk to, with and enjoy their company.
Health Care Worker (Former Employee) – Cranbrook, BC – 5 December 2015
A typical day would be to come into the client's home and ask what they want or need to have done and I would do whatever cleaning they needed doing that week. I always worked alone, this was the nature of our work and only met someone at We Care office in Cranbrook when I picked up my cheque. I would be asked if there were issues with any of the clients and I would discuss any concerns I or the client may have.
The most enjoyable part of the job was doing something for the client that he/she was not able to physically do him/her self.
The hardest part of the job was that time was not always on my side. If the client needed to talk or discuss a bad week or situation, then I spent time listening to him/her. Sometimes time did not allow me to do both, clean and listen. I would always do what I felt the client needed most.
I had wonderful clients to work with, some amazing stories were told, very interesting people, some sad situations, but very enjoyable.
