    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.

    Pros

    Assisting people with daily living skills is so rewarding. Helping them stay independent and in control. You do really become part of their family.

    Cons

    They use every excuse in the book not to give a pay increase, no future with this company. Expect you to drive to the office for every little detail!! They expect you to bend over backwards in doing your job and give nothing back to the employees.

    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

    Pros

    Clients treat you like family because your probably seen more than their own family.

    Cons

    You get attached fast so slways make clients your main concern with their needs first .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care Givers need to be lifted up, praised for the job the do because it's a demanding job. Helpers can easy and quickly get burnt out. Therefore not feeling appreciated.
