    I worked at Home Instead Senior Care part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They provide training, have regular quarterly meetings with 2 different time slots, good matching to clients, good communication, professionally run. A great staff.

    Cons

    No ding against them, just some clients only want 2 hours of care/help at a time, which doesn't give a caregiver much time to get things done for the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Parent company needs to get away from housekeeping aspect and concentrate on care giving and companion activities. Housekeepers charge less or the same for agency costs and can do more needed in depth cleaning.

    I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care

    Pros

    I work in office rather than as a CAREGiver and taking client inquiries and knowing you are providing help for a senior is the most rewarding feeling. My management is wonderful, very personable, understanding, and always willing to discuss strategies, suggestions, ideas. It is 100% a team here in my office.

    Cons

    Angry customers or rude attitudes from caregivers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting caregivers get away with the behaviors they perform.

    I worked at Home Instead Senior Care full-time

    Pros

    Working with seniors and each day is something different. Flexibility as far as scheduling. Clients close to home.

    Cons

    hours are not guaranteed. Some times you will have well over full time and others can be next to nothing. There are a lot of factors that go into the hours you would have. Client passes away or goes into facility or hospital, Clients cancel services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making your CAREGivers feel special
