    I have been working at Griswold Home Care (less than an year)

    Pros

    I like that I can call my client personally and discuss schedule changes.

    Cons

    You are supposed to be paid weekly. However I have had to call and email numerous times to office staff asking if they know about payment. I waited three weeks before receiving the first payment for my first client. Then the next payment for said client I got the following week but the next week did not receive payment. So far I have three separate clients behind in payment. I am owed nearly $400. I call the company and they say "oh we are meeting with them in a few days". I call again and they say "well we still haven't met with them". I guess I can pray my car starts without gas to keep seeing clients I am not being paid for?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up a better payment plan. Tell client and or family, payment is due by the following Friday or else services will be stopped. Get payment plan situated BEFORE services begin.

    Pros

    Job reliability, however, everything depends on one's client or resident

    Cons

    This is a leave-in job and you are expected to be at post 24/7. Thus, no time fun.

    Pros

    Passion to help the elderly the company is good and caring, they offer supportive services safety and opportunity to stay in own homes with fair rates. They cover a broad area and will travel.

    not always a regular schedule may not always speak the languages do not have many offices in local area and many of the caregivers do have accents making it hard to understand English

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    benefits to offer health care and insurance programs more training on a one on one basis to have more nurses on staff open more offices to make it easier to contact in different communities

    Great company...of course depends on each individual office. But my office works with me, has lots clients and helps me through any issues I need resolved with clients or pay.

    Cons

    You are considered self employed so no benefits or taxes taken out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    I had the same clients for a year and i love them. you can take days off and not have to find coverage.if you are not comfortable doing certain things with/for your client this is not held against you. client pays you at the end of your shift normally. you make your own scheldule

    Cons

    there are no benefits or PTO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    when multiple staff work in a house on going then i think there should be a responsibility sheet because not everybody does what they are suppose to do.

    I worked at Griswold Home Care as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not much but clients pay less than other traditional ways. This a hybrid way of contract between Business and Clients leaving most aspects of dealing to caregivers. Private clients pay workers directly but they are taking a big risk with IRS.

    Cons

    They are in Franchise Business to help(sell & train) anyone to start a referral service and keep taking 33% Finder's fee from clients & caregivers (independent contractors). Brand new branches advertise themselves as 30 years in business. Workers have to deal with their own taxes (about 30% of income)as a self-employee but many of them don't pay 'cause they can't afford.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even if they are non-medical care agencies, each branch owner should know about Health Care Laws in each State.

    I worked at Griswold Home Care as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The referrals were geared towards making a good match with client and caregiver. Griswold cares about giving their customers and employees the best care possible.

    Cons

    Some jobs may only last for a short while, and that can be sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing.

    Pros

    Close to home, ability to work from home when necessary.

    Cons

    Expected to use your own vehicle for transportation of home care workers, alot of wear and tear on your car. No healthcare benefits offered. Received many after hours phone calls from management when not on-call.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If office staff is expected to transport workers then a company vehicle should be provided.
