    Pros

    Staff is awesome. The schedulers try and accommodate each and every person in order to make sure that each person gets the maximum hours.

    Cons

    Money wasn't great. Hourly rates need to be based off experience and it will turn more heads to come work for this company.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule/Great Clients/Good Training and Management

    Cons

    LOW pay/Not Enough Hours or Clients

    Advice to Management

    Increase base pay to at least $10! This company pays their home health aides/cna's the lowest. There are several other companies that pay $10- $11. It's disappointing to have great clients but you just aren't compensated enough to pay your bills.

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

    Pros

    Caring one on one for the elderly

    Cons

    No livable wages. Clients are made to choose to pay the caregiver holiday pay and overtime, that the company promises employee. On top of the rates they already pay. You are assigned extreme cases, meant for CNA duty,but unless you have a piece of paper for CNA,pay is 9.00 HR.

    Advice to Management

    Keep check on your clients you service, because their condition changes often.
    Pay all well respected caregiver's a respectable wage, not under half of what you charge clients.

    Pros

    I love the company, and the owners, and all the employees I work with. We are so luck to work with seniors and help them live the lives they deserve.

    When working with seniors, there will be some loss, and when you develop relationships with your clients, it is like losing a member of your own family.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
