  • Apria Launches Totes of Hope Campaign

    In an effort to support Veterans in need, Apria employees have untied nationwide for a second consecutive year to bring help and hope to a homeless or at-risk Veteran in their community by participating in a Totes of Hope campaign. Officially launched during the July 4th holiday week and extending through the Labor Day holiday weekend, September 5th, Apria employees will seek to meet and exceed the Company’s goal of filling 400 totes with personal care essentials such as deodorant, toothbrushes, socks, gloves, razors, shampoo, and more. Totes will be delivered to Red Cross offices located near Apria branch locations, then distributed to Veterans in need.

  • As we all attend events during this patriotic time with family and friends, take a moment to remember the many courageous men and women who have served and sacrificed throughout our history to preserve, protect, and expand these liberties.

    Pros

    It's never boring at Apria Healthcare - there is always something new and different happening, and you can really expand your skills and knowledge. We do meaningful work here, so I feel great knowing we're improving the quality of life for our patients at home. You feel like you're part of a team, and making a difference. The people who stay here are committed to the mission.

    Cons

    The health insurance deductibles are high, but otherwise the rest of the benefits available are pretty standard. Since it's a dynamic organization, if you do not like change, you will not thrive here; the work demands flexibility, priority shifting, and a positive attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in engaging your employees and training your managers to be great leaders. Apria is only as good as the services your employees deliver, and your employees' performance is impacted positively or negatively by their managers. Take care of your people and they will take care of your patients.
