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

    Pros

    Love the company, it's a work environment, yet it feels like home. The acknowledgement is great, opportunity to grow and love my co-workers/family. " My home away from home"

    Cons

    "Nothing to say", but it's an everywhere or any other job thing , that you need to be professional and give respect to be respected. I personally can't complain.

    I worked at Optimal Home Care full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Chad, one of the two owners is great. Very approachable and totally committed to treating his employees like family. There are employee appreciation nights like a casino night, a fabulous Christmas party. They work so hard to make you successful in this company. I was a therapist and the only reason I left is because home care was not a good fit for me. They give their managers extensive training on how to manage respectfully. Altogether a great place to work.

    Cons

    As a therapist, there was no reimbursement for mileage if you didn't lease a car from them. the long hours on the road, which is what home care is, was tedious. I was cut off from getting new patients after a coaching session without being told but they made it right when I complained.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing Edwyn. In my opinion, what you are doing is steering this company like someone who really cares and you do!

    I have been working at Optimal Home Care full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very personal and warm culture with emphasis on collaboration and open communication. Genuinely cares about their staff. Believes in change and strives to improve all the time. They hold people to a high standard.

    Cons

    They give people chances and gets taken advantage of. Hiring clinicians with minimal experience which creates unrealistic expectations of newly hired employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people more accountable specifically the clinical staff. Recruit experienced clinicians and verify references specifically character references and if possible do personality checks.

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

    Pros

    documentation system is great. good communication between team members. office staff helpful. not inundated with staff meetings weekly. Appreciate the care team that takes care of a lot of things clinicians were once responsible for that frees up time for us.

    Cons

    pay is below local average, clinicians are not salaried, workload varies.

    Advice to Management

    keep up good communication with field staff. Thank you for all the employee "benefits" such as tennis team, picnics, etc. Builds morale.

    An awesome place to work. The management team is incredible. If you have any issues, they jump on them right away. The open door policy at Optimal is so refreshing - you know that your voice will always be heard and that if problems arise, they will be solved to the best of their ability. Very accommodating and helpful when it comes to training and all other questions. Awesome and positive environment to work in!

    Cons

    none for me to complain of!

    I have been working at Optimal Home Care as a contractor

    Pros

    Employees are supported in their roles, there are many opportunities for growth, many positions available and staff are placed where their talents are. Positive, family-oriented atmosphere. I always leave work feeling good and feeling connected and valued.

    Cons

    High volume work load. Good personal management and organization is vital or else one can easily get overwhelmed.

    Pros

    The company really goes out of its way to make everybody feel like a great part of the team.
    Many events designed to build great working relationships as well as have a ton of fun along the way.
    The heart of the owners and admin staff down to the clinicians on the front lines is one of serving and impacting the patient's lives.

    Cons

    Pay rates could be a bit higher.

    I have been working at Optimal Home Care part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Optimal is a great place to work. Period. Though we are expanding rapidly as a company, the agency continues to push hard to promote unity, comradery, and advocacy for it's employees. It's heavily family oriented and inviting; when you walk through the doors, it looks like someone's home who happens to have a reception desk in it. Overall, it's a fantastic place to work

    Cons

    Expansion is difficult for any company, and Optimal is no exception. But growth means business; the agency is able to celebrate a decade plus of being in business to their ability to adapt with the demands placed on them.

    Advice to Management

    Not currently at this time.

    I have been working at Optimal Home Care full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow and mature in more than just your job duties. Optimal really cares that the employees have a satisfactory work experience. This in turn, creates the best patient experience. The Management does listen and take seriously the input they get from employees. They want to know from the people doing the work how Optimal can improve! Happy employees come from Optimal Home Care!

    Cons

    We are growing like crazy! It is exciting, but at the same time it creates challenges with getting what you might need right now. As an employee who has just passed the 1 year anniversary mark, I am invested to be a part of the growth and to be able to put my stamp on my part of the companies growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to us! We really do want to do our best for Optimal!
