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

    Pros

    You can accept only the shifts you can fit into your schedule. There is a lot of work available once the snow birds arrive so you might get a lot of calls. They like to recognize exceptional caregivers so if you fall into that category be prepared for a lot of praise. The office staff is nice. The receptionist is friendly and makes you feel at home. The pay during the week is 11.00 per hour, but the weekends is 13.00 per hour which is considerably more than other agencies in the area pay. Once every 4 months there is a caregiver meeting and you are compensated for your time with a gift card. If you accept last minute shifts and they are in a pinch they will give you a gas card. That is a very nice perk. Also, at your annual review you get a bonus based on base rate of pay and the hours you worked. It's a formula they have and that too is a very nice perk. Also, when you refer another caregiver and they work at least 50 hours you get a 200.00 bonus.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are difficult clients and you have to pay attention to what the scheduler tells you or you might walk into a disaster.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to the caregivers to see if they are complying with the dress code policy. Surprise visits to clients would be good so that you can see if all is well and things are running smoothly. Get a better outreach to the community so that you can get more clients.

    I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for Home Instead Senior Care’s Annandale location for over 9 years as their Nurse supervisor. I have never worked with a more caring, committed or professional group of people! The home aides, companions, and support staff are phenomenal and really care about the Seniors they help.

    Cons

    If you work in healthcare, you don’t make the big bucks! The rewards are in the appreciation we receive from our Seniors and their families.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    The staff for the particular location I worked for were wonderful, caring, and very attentive. They truly tried to find client/caregiver matches that also went along with the hours I requested I could work.

    Cons

    If you are seeking a full time(40hr a week) position, you will most likely not come across such hours with the home health industry unless you work overnights, or are willing to work 12 hour shifts. It is nothing at all toward this company, it is just the nature of this industry in general.
