I received good experience as a new HCA. I worked with clients who required 24 hour care so I was able to do a mix of different things which allowed me to develop my skills are an HCA

Pros

I obtained great home care experience

Cons

People not showing up for shifts or people showing up late for shifts

Management is great. Hours are picked up not assigned

The management is wonderful here, they care about their staff and they're always very accommodating to what you need. Hours are pick up based, you choose your own schedule. This is more of a supplemental job, for extra income. So if you're looking for full time work, this might not be for you. They always try to pair you with a client who they feel you'd do good with. Cant recommend this company enough.

So not recommend

This is a private home care company. They have No benefits to offer staff.Schedule changes all the time. Clients get charged for hours that staff aren’t there sometimes.

Good place to work if you are looking for a casual position

I love working with seniors, so I enjoyed my work. Most times you don't get enough hours and some days no hour at all. You drive round the city and they do not pay for mileage.

Pros

Working to pay bill

Cons

No benefits, no bonus and no mileage payment

Great Clients and Management

Best clients. Supportive management team. You get to work with so many valuable clients with different backgrounds who are very diverse in their needs. Shifts are well scheduled and lots of hours!

Pros

Amazing clients

Cons

Very clicky and staff are out for themselves

The company culture used to be good so I understand. But it was already breaking down when I joined and steadily got worse. You pay a premium for the home support services that NND provides and it was quickly clear to me that the customer doesn't really get value for money. Which is a real pity, NND isn't that bad a place to work, a few tweaks to the management, a little less corporate thinking and a lot more heart and it would essentially be a great place to work. Things the way they are though, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Wonderful Work Environment

Wonderful work environment and place to grow and learn. Supportive of work and home life balance. Proper medical equipment is always provided, and training prior to going into a clients home

unfortunately, Alberta doesn't care about home care workers. You get no breaks, no paid overtime, and no, or poor raises. the company doesnt care to help with this, they just follow the care minimum rules.

Pros

good clients

Cons

no overtime pay, no breaks, poor schedule

They don’t offer you a real job

The company has a policy to offer casual on call jobs ONLY, but you actually work as a regular part or full time employee. You have all the responsibilities of full time employee but with no benefits, training or paid holidays.It’s good as a step job or to make some extra money, but I don’t recommend it as a primary source of income (as you have no guarantees).

Pros

Flexible schedule

Cons

No guarantees or benefits

Great for casual work!

In my opinion this job is very good as part-time/casual work. The hours are flexible and varies depending on the amount of visits you are open to take. The managers are very nice and understanding!

Long hours and low pay. If you have ideas that might help you’re labeled a trouble maker.

There is a lot of talk about values but it’s all talk. It’s like the managers think it’s high school with all the drama and not allowing anyone to sit at their table.

Pros

Some Cool people

Cons

How everything is managed
