A very efficiency structured workplace. Goal oriented and many options for advancement but need to work on there manager-employee relations. Great fluctuations in caseloads and good diverse patients and staff.
diverse patients, benefits, advancement opportunities
Personal Care Aide (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 16 August 2018
I’ve been with this company for 3 months. I’ve only been getting 20 hours a week even though when I was hired they said they were desperate and needed full time people. I’m constantly emailing/ calling the girls in the office. (Who take so much time off themselves that you always get an auto response and have to wait days for them to get back to you!) I have told them I will work ANY time as I need FULL time! They ONLY call me on my weekends off and harass me when they do (10+ calls in a half hour). Overall, it’s a bad company. Raises aren’t honoured and even the clients I have had are fed up with Kindred. Happy to be out of that place!!
Home support Worker (Current Employee) – Moncton, NB – 1 November 2017
A typical day may start with one client all day or up to 3 clients in a day. Every case is different. The duties may include light housekeeping, cooking, person care, taking them out shopping. The hardest part is losing client by death or being placed in a nursing home. The job can be very physical or we are only there to allow family some time away for home. The best part for me is getting to know the clients and all their stories.
Knowing that seniors are in clean homes & good food.
After losing a client it can take a long time to get new clients
Human Services Worker (Former Employee) – Saint John NB – 5 November 2014
I worked 5 days a week caring for an elderly lady. I learned that I really love working with people. I was very organized. I didnt work with co-workers as I worked on my own. The hardest part of the job was dealing with toileting issues, however that wasn't that bad at all. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my client. She was amazing and a joy to be around. A typical day at work was coming in, getting my client bathed and ready for the day. We would hang out and talk and watch movies and enjoy each others company. I would clean her house every day and take her to church on Sundays, which she loved.
Home Support Worker (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 4 January 2016
typical work day consists of providing home support and personal care/ support to clients in their homes. management is friendly and understanding and supportive. co-workers are wonderful hardest part of the job is knowing the individuals you are providing care for are nearing the end of their life and seeing their health deteriorate. the most enjoyable part is interacting with the clients and their families and providing help and support to the clients.
great people to work with
sometimes having to travel fair distances for only a few hours work in poor road conditions
They like to make you think they are a good company.
Home Support Worker (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 19 January 2017
I was excited when I got my job with Kindred. I loved my clients and I was finally in a field I enjoyed. However they fired me for having sick notes. They are also still docking my last pay for training I never received and refuse to refund it. The scheduling is always changing. And, they are very ungrateful.
Home Support Worker (Former Employee) – Grand Manan, NB – 31 March 2017
Working for Kindred Healthcare was a very rewarding job mainly because of the clients and the reward of being able to help them in the comfort of their own home. Management was great, only negative is home care workers are not paid as well as they should be.
Home Support Worker (Current Employee) – Sackville, NB – 30 January 2016
daily events were personal care, meal preparation,and cleaning. we learn a lot about our clients and we get to know them and they get to know us, management is good. i never seen any of my coworkers. there really wasn't any hard parts to the job, the most enjoyable part of the job was sitting and chatting with ur clients, they are number 1 , always.
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 12 July 2015
I enjoyed working for them, they let you work while you took the home care course at the same time. only down fall is there was no guarantee of hours and there were too many emails from the scheduling department always changing shifts.
