RPN (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON7 August 2018
This job allowed me to work on my own as a Nurse, traveling to and from client homes while also staying "on-site" during work hours.
Most communication relies solely on phone calls and voicemail
Working here allows me to manage my other responsibilities
As much as you are independent on the job, you can call your supervisor or coworkers for help anytime.
Pros
in dependency
Cons
non consistent communication

Co workers are great. Managers are fake and lie! There are no full time hours! Maybe or only on the weekends. No benefits! No support! Not allowed to book off during Christmas and New Year's ever! Have to work ever single stat holiday! Denied vacations!! Stay away from this company! They will lie to get you in and then treat you badly and disrespectfully.
Pros
Great PSWs!
Cons
No hours!!!

Great place to start.
Client Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON15 September 2017
A typical day at work is extremely busy booking patients with caregivers.

I learned time management is the key to succeed in this field.

Management is not aware of incompetent supervisors.

The hardest part of the job is booking patients with only a handful of caregivers.

The most enjoyable part of the job is being with your co-workers.
Pros
Great place to train yourself for coordination work.
Cons
One terrible team lead.

need to collaborate more with the work team.
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON24 August 2017
The good thing is you will learn to adjust your self to a diff. culture.the hard thing if the patient had a bad experience from other workers they will treat you bad... i would suggest if patients like the worker as long time permitted its better to have a consistency of the care they like.

Management is poor but clients make up for it
Psw (Former Employee) –  Newmarket, ON22 August 2017
I was with the company for a short period of time and due to poor management I have chosen to leave. They have no respect for your choices and schedule. As well, on days off (which are hardly available to you unless you push for it) they are calling you to work. They are not organized and will send you to clients and not give you proper information to assist them. When you address your coordinators regarding the issues they blatantly disregard the situation or quickly dismiss it. Most have no respect for the psw's. I was disrespected many times and was stressed out most of the time working there. If you can just avoid working here!
Pros
Clients
Cons
Rude staff, unorganized, unprofessional
