Client Care Coordinator (Former Employee), Newmarket, ON – September 23, 2014
Pros: cake on your birthday
Very busy!!! Highly stressful. Very little positive reinforcement from management. Co-workers are under a lot of pressure, but not compensated for continual additions to job description. Management is very often inappropriate, using foul language while others are on the telephone with clientele. Very few opportunities to approach management with concerns, – more... without being made to feel as though your job will be held for ransom. Past staff talked about very negatively and openly by management to everyone. – less
Friendly work environment. Enjoyed teaching other health care professionals with different characteristics
Lab Technician (Former Employee), London, ON – August 25, 2014
Pros: thankful for friendly management
Cons: only contract job
Being trained to teach other health care professionals was not as easy as i thought it would be. After a couple shifts I learned how to communicate better with each individual and also in a large group. Normally I have not liked standing up in a room with everyone's attention on me. Working for this company brought out my fears and also made me conquer – more... them. The hardest part was keeping everyone on the same page with my first couple shifts. I had to train them using the new accu check glucose meters. They each had a device and some of them would go ahead of me playing with the device so i would have to stop the lesson and help them go back to where I was initially. Once that happened a few times I knew I had to start lesson by saying that they could not play with device because we only had half an hour to train them and sign their names for yearly certification. I absolutely enjoyed working with this company. I traveled to different hospitals and got to meet and listen to stories from health care professionals about the unit they were on. From my interview to training and my first day of work, management and and staff were more then willing to help in anyway they could. They did so much to make sure that you felt comfortable with teaching methods and that health care professionals were going to understand and be trained with devices properly. – less
client (Former Employee), Fraser Valley – May 21, 2014
Cons: as described
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 – more... 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. – less
Community Support Worker (Former Employee), Mississauga, ON – January 19, 2014
Pros: nice color of scrubs
Cons: horrible safety for staff
This company is all about making money. They do not have good patient care, as one hour visits aren't usually enough. They also pretend to care about your personal safety, but that is just company policy talking.
Office Administrator (Former Employee), Red Deer, Alberta – November 24, 2013
Pros: love the clients!!!
Cons: not a very organized company
The scheduler has not been able to set up a future schedule for staff and clients to look forward to.If problems arise, it is hard to get to talk to the appropriate managers to solve. I love working with the clients and they deserve more consistency in their care. The field workers are awesome, but they are terribly misguided by the office.
Care Aide (Current Employee), Surrey, BC – August 14, 2013
I've learned a lot from the monthly in services the management holds, from topics like dementia to risk management.
My schedule is always rotating, there is no set schedule, client lists change often.
My co-workers have always been amazing, I've had the pleasure of training a lot of them. But the hardest part of the job is saying good bye to the clients – more... once service is terminated. What I love most is the bright smiling faces of my clients, it keeps me going..... – less
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee), Barrie, ON – July 31, 2013
Pros: flexibility in your choice or declining of assignments
Cons: must have own vehicle
A wonderful company to work for. Must have a valid driver's license and vehicle which I do not possess at the current time which unfortunately leaves me without assignments. Other than that I would highly recommend that Personal Support Workers apply to We Care Home Health Services for employment. They have a highly supportive group of support individuals – more... working for them and my experience has been an absolutely awesome one!!! – less
