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

    Pros

    You usually never see the manager or people from the office. You're usually alone with the client, unless family members come and visit.

    Cons

    Little hours Low pay Sometimes you have to visit multiple clients in one day, which means you waste a lot of gas.

    Advice to Management

    Give more hours and pay more.

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

    Pros

    My experiences with Home Instead have been 100% positive. Each time I have interacted with any staff member (and this occurs frequently in a home health aide position) they have been polite, helpful, ,and positive. They make it seem like they always have time for any questions one might have. This has applied to management and office staff. They answer questions and address concerns in a very timely manner. I have never experienced a negative encounter with anyone in the company. Quite amazing!

    Cons

    It would be great if they were able to offer a full time position with benefits in the care department. In addition, it would be good if they could offer a higher rate of pay for your aides.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing-that's how you became such a hugely successful company which sets the standard in senior home health care.

    Pros

    I've learned a lot about myself and discovered a different perspective to life while working with my clients

    Cons

    The pay isn't quite enough to make a living. Your pay reflects the amount of skills you possess but it's still not enough

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing you

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

    Pros

    If you are a people person, a doer type personality, compassionate, you will enjoy the pros of being a care-giver. You have a chance to make a difference to someone, who may have spent their entire life being the person who took charge and took care of others. Many times their family isnt able to be as hands on with the daily needs, you will be.

    Cons

    Physical job at times. The people you will be handling are sometimes so frail, and breakable. Skin tears easily, so you must know what you can do and what you can't to keep their safety and yours in every thought. Sometime people will be in denial that they need help, you'll meet all types of personalities, and it will test your patience daily. Pay isn't good at all.If a private pay client, wants you to leave after 2 hrs...that's they're choice and that's all you get paid. At least 11.00 pr hour would be fair, for the more hands on clients. Sometimes you just help with errands or shopping or drive for the cl...those jobs should be the 8,50.
