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

    Pros

    The staff are just awesome. They are very supportive to their clients and their staff.

    Cons

    Pay or compensation sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider paying people for their prior experiences and training which they bring to the company. Add mileage pay; traveling 45 minutes to a job and longer in bad weather puts a toll on cars, you want us to use our vehicles if need be but no mileage pay is BS.

    I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care

    Pros

    If you're passion is making a person's end of life satisfying and safe then this company is for you.

    Cons

    If you're single and want a livable sustainable wage run from this job. The wage is impossible to live on. Driving sometimes 35 miles or more to a clients home with no gas reimbursement puts a defeating blow to your pay. 1/3 to 2/3 of what you earn (which is measely) goes into your tank for gas to get to job site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no words because the pay within all in-home health care businesses in the state are in the same pathetic pay scale (range).

    I worked at Home Instead Senior Care

    Pros

    I was part of the Frederick team under owner Brad Snively. It was a wonderful experience that I will always think positively about and maintain a relationship with. They honestly care about their staff and clients. Brad and Office Manager, Alicia make sure staff is assigned the hours and locations they select. Have ample opportunities to pick up extra work.
    I have seen the owner, Brad, go to clients homes and provide services himself. What superior customer service is that?
    They call ALL of their clients on a routine basis to be certain their clients are receiving quality care from the associates and a completely satisfied. They also remember clients birthdays, children's names and special events. They become part of their clients extended families.

    Cons

    I can't think of any

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Brad, Keep doing what your doing.
