Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 8 April 2017
The individuals working at Bayshore Home Health sincerely believe in doing all they can in assisting the elderly by setting up schedules, people's assistance ie. social work, support workers etc. Each Nurse is efficient in coming at the drop of a dime to provide medical care. Everyone from housekeeping up in personal are professional in appearance and attitude. Lifke any company with so many staffed there are bound to be sections that need accommodation ie. refresher courses, motivational rewards, distance in the workplace from people who become friends rather than co-workers etc. The seniors are always appreciative of the services they are supplied. Many of the people the support workers see can't wait to have someone that can do the work and do it well.
Employment and Medicines are paid
No motivational perks, if a staff is feeling good about their work that staff is quickly put down.
Client Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 30 January 2017
I loved working for Bayshore clients and field staff were pleasant to work with. I would still be there if it wasn't for the area director and manager of the branch at the time of my employment. I left as it was very stressful environment to work in with AD and MNG. They are no longer emplyed with Bayshore. If I had an opportunity to return I would love to work with Bayshore again.
Nurse Aide (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 12 January 2017
I did enjoy working for Bay Shore for I cared for some very nice seniors & helped out a family for a few months . I did find the company weren't very organized about scheduling shifts a head in time & expected me to run out the door on very little notice. I did work with some nice girls and also gained more knowledge working on my own .
Personal support worker (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 1 April 2014
A typical day at work for me would be to go to a client's house and introduce myself and let them know where i am coming from. Then i would sign in and look over the client's care plan to see what is required from me to do in the home and with the client. I would help the client with there daily needs and then go and see my next client for the day. I rarely every saw my manger or my co worker, Then i would have to learn each client's needs and routine so i could help them to the best of my knowledge. The hardest part of my job is dealing with death and attendant sadness. The most enjoyable part was being able to help people when they can not help themselves to there full capacity.

Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 8 September 2013
Very flexible schedule, however not enough hours. I enjoyed getting to know the clients that I did and working with them. I was able to communicate or discuss any concerns with my supervisors and team members.
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Kitchener Ontario – 8 July 2013
In this kind of job you must have a long patience, compassion, ethics, creative, time management,caring and work as a team to co-workers. I learn how to deal with different people with health related problem of the client, encouragement and motivation. Manage your time with the allotted time in providing care & follow the care plan. Its hard if there's a new related health concern or accident happens to a client. I'm happy if my client is getting better or there's improvement & if they are happy and give a compliment to us providing their care. The travel allowance is not enough it should be computed based on the mileage.
PSW (Current Employee) – KITCHENER – 18 March 2013
As a Person Support worker: home support, a typical day would be visiting diffrent clients in their home, some are very nice people but some not so nice. Management needs to improve more on the schedulling and communication. Some of the coordinators are just there they do not really know what they are doing, they call you one million times a day never give you enough hours to live on; maybe 1 hour a day it is really frustrating...and the pay is very low.
