This company mass hires just for the numbers. Hours of work are very few because they are shared with all employees.

Although it’s been a long time, I will not work for them again due to having to get a second and third job to make ends meet.


Office staff are there for business only, not for a friendly hello.
Pros
Hired immediately
Cons
Very few hours available most times. Office staff are not available for a “Hello, how are you” conversation.

Attachment to client and they eventually die.

I enjoyed Home Instead very much. The clients were amazing. Each one of them had a different and unique personality. Sometimes it could emotionally drain you as it break your heart to see some of the things they’re broken by. Having loved ones passing away, removed (for their safety) from their homes and into facilities that can manage them better as well as provide the ultimate care one needs.
Pros
All pros
Cons
Can’t think of any

i have learnt a lot working in elderly clients for being empathetic and patient. The management staffs are very professional in handling cases and scheduling my time to give care for the clients. The most enjoyable part of the job is creating friendship relation to other coworkers and providing a community of other health care providers which we created a common goal, giving care to the elders.

I returned a few months ago to work again for this particular office. I had a great 2 year run before and the last 2 months I was matched up with a wonderful elderly client. Unfortunately he passed away at 96 years old. I only like doing overnight shifts now at this point in my caregiving career and the owner and staff of this particular office are great to work for. They are very accommodating to my schedule, always respectful of myself, other caregivers and the client's families. Humor can be very important too in this line of work and this staff share this trait with others.
I only recommend this Richmond office and not the Vancouver office.

If you're in a retirement home or long term care it's different because you have others there who helps you if a person gets out of control which sometimes happens going into some ones home is personal care and hose keeping

Staff are good. Many hours are given out. Low pay. No benefits. No growth, no extras are given. Some clients are harder than others. Not much room for growth

The interview was easy enough. But the work itself was kind of not the best. They would send me to clients houses or places that were around 45 mins to 1 hour away. They didn’t have benefits, or pay for gas mileage unless you took a client somewhere. Most of the shifts were spaced out or they were 12 hour shifts. The work isn’t bad just not the best. Feels like Casual

Great place with supportive staff members. You have the rare opportunity of sharing a part of your life with families that are either going through the aging process for the first time, or have a situation they are going through. Pleasant experience so far!
