    Pros

    This HISC franchise provides great training, open door space for personal chat, high and respected community involvement, respect for its clients, respect for its caregivers.

    Cons

    There are 200+ caregivers all with different needs and work styles. It's difficult for the supportive staff to get to everyone. Patience is golden.

    I worked at Home Instead Senior Care part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supportive and helpful staff. You can turn down or accept clients. The care coordinator is willing to work with caregivers and problem solve. They offer opportunities to earn ceu's free of charge and also give classes if you can fit them into your schedule. Many of the clients are very nice.

    Cons

    Low pay and very infrequent raises. Can never count on hours. You feel starved out. They are always hiring even though they don't give their faithful employees hours. Undependable.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours and the clients...

    Cons

    I have worked for HomeInstead for 2 years and honestly the Mason, Ohio location is the most unprofessional and disorganized office. They have lost all but 1 office staff member over the last year plus (1 original girl stayed) and new office staff hires don't last long either. I have no clue how many caregivers leave except for the numerous fill-in requests we receive daily.
     The Office staff never return our phone calls and they do not communicate between each other. Inexperience caregivers are hired and sent out without any information on the client or how to care for them. The experience caregivers are the ones that train them however, we do not receive any training pay because we're told just to show them the JOB.
     There use to be introductions for new clients and caregivers but now we go in blind. We're told not to lift over 25 lbs however this is constantly overlooked. Omaha should investigate the staff losses and the workman's comp claims.
     We're not suppose to directly give medication but its overlooked for the fully disabled clients. Why is this allowed? It"s all for the MONEY. They do not survey past clients as far as I know Omaha doesn't either. why not???
    I would want to know what I could do to improve or why the clients quit our business... The owners are clueless and in Florida....
    The caregiver surveys are a joke and they hand pick certain caregivers to come in and give feedback..
    No one checks up on management, staff and caregivers.. and there's nothing in place to do so.
    I stay for the flexible hours until I can find another job.

    Advice to Management

    Correct the above situations....and stop breaking rules...and start caring for heart of your business...your caregivers which are under paid and under appreciated.

    Pros

    The bonds that are formed with clients are rewarding and the office staff is very supportive and responsive and want their employees to succeed.

    Cons

    This a low paying job for the services that employees provide to clients. Then working environments can also be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to offer overtime pay and to offer better pay.
