I worked at Synergy HomeCare full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Synergy Homecare is an excellent franchise, and has excellent computer developed web application as to customer data entry, tracking, etc. Very easy to learn, and very user friendly. Caregiver process very well thought of, and paperwork is very straight forward.

Cons

There are some franchises that are flourishing, and there are those that are not. This is a revolving door where you quickly gain clients, and quickly lose clients as they either pass away, or recover. It is a very demanding revolving schedule, that takes a fine balance of matching up caregiver personalities with client personalities, and often there is a conflict. Once a caregiver has a conflict with a client, the caregiver is penalized and left waiting for another opportunity to gain a new client. Or caregiver loses a client due to death or illness, and has to wait for a new client to be signed on and this could add days or weeks before you regain the hours that you lost. There are more former caregivers who worked at this location then there were clients signed on and receiving care.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In order to maintain a franchise location, it takes commitment and a willingness to look for leads and sign on clients. When you lose your desire to look for leads and clients, your franchise feels the strain, and your caregivers are hoping for more hours. Allow others to look for leads, contact potential clients, and empower them to exceed and thrive. Micro managing all aspects of a franchise simply does not work.

    Pros

    Extensive orientation, use of newer technologies for documentation, great benefits, and an excellent support system.

    Cons

    Must have strong experience in Medical-Surgical Nursing as many of the patients are elderly with many co-morbid conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could use more one-to-one time to learn Oasis part of documentation and come up with ways to shorten these processes.
