    Former Employee - Home Health Care Provider in Longview, TX

    I worked at Texas Home Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sorry the experience was overall a very negative one.

    Cons

    many, no support from management, poor pay, minimum wage with no raises, clients feel unsupported and we as caregivers feel unsupported and bear much of the blame from the clients because we are the only representatives from the company that they see. We get moved around too much. Just when you are happy with a client they move you to somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix what is wrong in the upper levels and the company will run smoother. Stop blaming your caregivers for problems and start looking at yourselves. Clients are generally very happy with the work on the ground but when they cannot get any support from the company itself they have no one else to blame but us and resentment sets in. That is why you cannot keep any employees on the ground level that and the fact that you won't even pay a dime over minimum wage but every supervisor is paid much more than their position calls for. Clients are not satisfied with the company because their needs are not getting met in all areas except patient care and when it is a question of patient care it is because the character of some of the types of caregivers that the company is drawing is very low because the wages are so low. I quit to go to a company that hired on above minimum wage and gave raises as experience increased. Understanding that pay can only be so high because government contracts for these kinds of jobs is only so much money per year but the company seems to be taking a much larger chunk of that money for it's management instead of paying it out to actually pay the caregiver to take care of the client. I question the integrity of the management company.

    I worked at Texas Home Health part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to move up the ladder and succeed at advancements.

    Cons

    starting pay is minimum wage, which does not help when you have to travel several miles every day to work & back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be more understanding to employee needs also & if someone can only have desk work, try to accommidate to that need if at all possible.

    I worked at Texas Home Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Worked with great people and decent work life balance.

    Cons

    When THH was acquired by AccentCare the wheels fell off. To many structure changes and organizational reporting line. Too many management changes, no consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get payroll fixed! That's if you want to keep good people.

    I worked at Texas Home Health for more than a year

    Pros

    Home health: ability to give undivided attention to each patient in their own environment and have the time to resolve barriers to quality health and quality of life issues. Use of HomeCare HomeBase is an improvement.
    Georgetown: great field team.

    Cons

    Office tension and disorganization effects field scheduling and quality of care delivered to patients. Training for HomeCare HomeBase not thorough enough for smooth transition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One person in each office rolled out to HomeCare HomeBase needs to have complete training and thorough understanding of system so when corporate support leaves, this person has the knowledge to let the office be self-sustaining.

    Pros

    None, I can't think of one

    Cons

    This company wines and dines to get you on board and then they drop you as soon as census falls. A pressure cooker. Management is over populated and the field staff are few and overworked. They do not care about individuals and loyalty does not have a place with Accentcare-Texas Home Health!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management, you are overpaid and there are too many of you!!!

    Pros

    Our office staff are knowledgable and helpful. The different professionals work together to optimize scheduling for both patients and therapists/nurses. Love the flexibility of time! Salary is competitive and management is flexible and their doors are always open.

    Cons

    Computer software is difficult to learn and not organized in a logical manner. But with some dedication, you can learn it and use it effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New computer software, and I understand, tablets are in the works...

    I have been working at Texas Home Health as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    if you are looking for a temporary position where you can obtain hands on experience working with clients this is a perfect opportunity

    Cons

    un-professional, and un-knowledgable upper- office management. Job doesn't provide benefits or training to care-partners who work in the field.. They don't take the time to educate you on who the client is that you will be working with or what their true needs may be. They raises unless you have been with the company a year, and are un-helpful when dealing with situations regarding the clients. Its like working in a contact position or independently.. being in business for yourself but being affliated with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees before you send them out into the field.. Do a better job of educating them on what to expect when walking into someones home for the first time.. and take time to really screen the clients so that you not only know what the client is really like and needs are, but also what care partner would work with them the best. Also provide your care partners with some kind of benefits.

    Former Employee - RN Case Manager in Austin, TX

    I worked at Texas Home Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was liked by management andt was left alone but not everyone was so lucky. I was there for ust a few years and they went through multiple owners. Stick around long enough and outlast the others who quit and you will be promoted just through longevity ( 6 mo - 1 year)

    Cons

    Very poor benefits. Cost for health care was high. I'm used to c.ompanies picking up the total or most of the cost of health insurance but that was not the case here. Company was very money oriented and would work you to death. Extremely high turnover which means it causes problems for everyone when nurses quit..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an eye on the Austin location. Management only geared to the money.
