    I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The client is in their familiar surroundings and usually have family near or that visits often. I was able to work in homes, assisted living facility and a rehab center when the family wanted someone there to help with care as there was a high fall risk. The care needed was evaluated by the company nurse and if there were any questions, you could call the office. They often knew what the family wanted and any changes to be made.

    Cons

    It is very hard to need to go to a different place each day and sometimes the directions were wrong. The work was not regular. Too many weeks with no clients. They might have needed to give them to the new hires since they seem to hire more nearly every week. I have been with the company since July but have had only a few weeks of regular clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be considerate of employees needs as well as client needs. Hard to keep employees when they aren't able to have work.

    Pros

    Very good training from the start, continued training, good opportunities for advancement, professional staff, and they send you cards seem to show their appreciation.

    Cons

    Caregiver pay (it is what it is..), there may be times when you do not have shifts to work (its kind of as needed).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Try to find a way to increase the pay rate up to at least 9.00 per hour. I think that that might attract more professional caregivers.
