    I worked at Homewatch CareGivers full-time

    Pros

    Caregiving is a selfless act. The company is franchised so I can only speak from one point of ownership view. Great promises, loved the patients and caregivers. ..

    Cons

    Owner would flip emotionally every 3 seconds, he would jack the rates for clients up if he didn't like them. Staying compliant was not as important as the profit. Very hard ideology to subscribe to! Turnover very high.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the bigger picture. Treat your employees with respect, not emotional abuse. Hostile management practices will result in the ship going down

    Pros

    Its a great company to work for that works well with their Caregivers according to their schedule. A great way to earn extra hours while working hourly or as a live-in caregiver. The clients that I have worked with were awesome and made the job more enjoyable.

    Cons

    The downside in my case is getting enough hours for a full time schedule, but that hasn't been the case since I've been employed.
