    Pros

    Its a good company they share good values and alway try the best for the client.

    Cons

    It's not a job as a primary check, ill recommended as a secondary or hobby after retirement to keep yourself busy. Not good pay for all the physical work you're going to be doing. Even if you set an available schedule they will try to give you hours you are not available.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible hours, opportunities for raise if you work hard and go to meetings. Offers training as well, such as Alzheimer's certification. Office staff are friendly and understanding when you need time off or have questions/problems on the job. 24 hour help if you need to call the office. They will always introduce you personally to your patient when you first start with someone.

    Cons

    Some clients need more care than you expect going in, and often the office has outdated or little information about patients you going to care for.

    Advice to Management

    Update information for patients more often, it can get outdated quickly.

    I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to pick your own schedule, Wonderful Clients, Extensive Training, Nice In-house team, meeting lots of great people. Both Client and Caregiver give input to continue care with particular client and caregiver, or not, so everyone is happy and comfortable together

    Cons

    Low pay, no possibility of advancement, not getting as many hours you want, even when your available and flexible. Inconsistent communication between office & client and office & caregiver.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your long time and dedicated caregivers with incentives and higher wage rate. Make last minute, fill in shifts more appealing to a wider range of caregivers with gift cards, as the norm, not by exception.

    I worked at Home Instead Senior Care part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You build your work schedule however you want, and the locations you work at can be close to home! If you want part time, full time or only a few hours a week Home Instead works with you to do that!

    Cons

    A lot of shifts are 'short shifts' which are 2 hours long so make sure its close to home to make it worth it.
