not a great company
Visiting Nurse (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON19 May 2017
Did not have the best experience in terms of work life balance. A lot of "Voluntold" type of advancement or job expectations. Company changed for the worst when they where bought out.
They salary the nurses which seems nice but this means they abuse how many patients you have too see. A typical 8hr day included driving over 80km's and seeing up 11 patients. This usually means overtime every day.
Pros
none
Cons
everything

Hospital Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Moncton NB11 May 2017
If hired you will be employing a person willing to grow with your company. A hard worker who knows the value of putting in a good days shift and getting remunerated for the job. Life can be hard and sometimes a chance just ought to be given to an individual trying to help herself and family out.

Poor management
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Fredericton, NB6 May 2017
Working here is a temporary thing. They treat their workers poorly and are very unorganized. The pay is poor for what you have to deal with. Be prepared to work long hours and be paid very little. Many of the workers here are worked hard and are very tired. Management shows preference for certain people and no matter how hard one works, there is little chance for advancement.
Pros
free meals
Cons
long hours, little recognition, poor remuneration

Worst job I have ever had
Care Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Newmarket, ON4 January 2017
The problem with this location is the management. Very unsupportive and even talk bad about their own employees. I have never seen such unprofessional managers . Management even lies to their employees and tells them things/ issues that are not even true. Job discriptions change without notice. High stress , fast paced and not appreciated by managers.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
Everything

Fantastic company to work for!
PSW Homecare Specialist & Part Time CoOrdinator (Current Employee) –  York Region7 December 2016
They really try to keep all your clients grouped into ONE area at a time so you aren't driving all over and wasting half of your day traveling. They focus on care and providing EXCEPTIONAL care for their clients in the PSW's they employ.
They are great at balancing home life and work schedules. Sometimes communication with the office or coordinators is awful, many last minute notice to changes in schedule, or fill ins, and some coordinators are rude and guilt you into taking extra clients. Communication between clients and coordinators is practically non existent for some areas. Client Care Supervisors don't communicate with clients as often as they should for feedback on how PSW's are performing for the clients.
Pros
Great balance of work and home lives.
Cons
VERY long hours some days.

Friendly, helpful staff.
Health Care Assistant (Current Employee) –  2631 B Douglas St, Victoria BC18 May 2016
A typical day of work is greeting the client, and assisting them with their ADL's. Most live in clients only require a small amount of help: Meal prep, toileting, getting dressed, companionship, medications, housekeeping.
I learned that keeping the mind and body active can be the best way to handle depression and stress that a lot of the clients have.
The management is wonderful. Very open to communication, not a top-down approach.
The co-workers are all great. Happy, positive energy.
Hardest part is dealing with a client that has passed away in your care.
The most enjoyable part is getting a sincere "Thank you" even if it's for getting them something as simple as a glass of water.
Pros
Payday snacks, flexible hours
Cons
Most of the clients are Beacon

WeCare
Senior, Palliative, and Mental Disability Care (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB16 November 2015
The hours given to the staff are unlivable. They seem to care more about their bottom line than their staff and client safety. The clients themselves are wonderful people, and a few of the nurses are nice and helpful. However scheduling is a nightmare and the unfair treatment leads to a high turnover in jobs.
Pros
Friendly coworkers, great clients
Cons
Scheduling, life and work balance, no traveling reimbursement

Good company to work for.
Personal Support worker (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON21 May 2015
a typical day at work could possibly include taking care of several patients on a floor or just one client. You get your report from the nurses who are generally nice and help you when you need it.
