Clients and other staff are great. Supervisors are helpful and do a good job with communicating with field staff most of the time.
A lot of the time, we don't get time for travel or breaks. Are told to leave visits early if necessary, yet clients complain that they pay for the service, their time gets cut with CC, etc. Puts us in a bad position and - more... can cause unneeded stress in an already stressful job.
Northwood does a better job than most other home care companies around, but I think they should work on scheduling and allowing time for travel and break time, because your staff are no good ... - less
ProsGreat clients, supportive supervisors
ConsNo travel or break time scheduled, benefits are too expensive for what you get, frequent client complaints about staffing can be draining
