If you care for your loved ones, DO NOT use this company. Not only do they force employees to administer meds (by law this is not allowed) but, they also treat employees like a number with low pay starting at $8 an hour.
If you are sick or the roads are icy you will still lose your job because they will tell you it’s abandonment and abuse if you don't make it to your client. You are better off going into the private sector. I am sure you will pay a lot less and still get better care for your loved ones. You are correct about Visiting Angels.
Here locally, the "franchise", and yes they are all franchises with no real corporate oversight, are horrible for the employees.
THEY ARE ABOUT BILLABLE HOURS! They have no requirement for caregivers to have at a minimum a CPR certification, nor do they provide any BBP (Blood-borne Pathogen) training, or provide any uniforms, scrubs, or PPE, gloves, or cleaning agents for the caregivers to utilize while handling fecal matter, blood, urine etc. But the franchise expects the worker to do all of this, and more.
It really is a racket for the folks at the top making serious money, but if you are a worker forget about any quality of work/life balance, or any benefits, raises, or long-term career success. Nothing against the caregivers, as most are good people just trying to earn a living and make a difference, however no love for the fat cats at the top of this food chain getting rich off slave labor.
The woman pictured is Debbie the "office Manager" she is the worst out of all of them the way she treats the caregivers.
Making threats over hours location and coming in on your day off. Also, she encourages caregivers to not say anything when they see that other caregivers are taking the poor patients pills.
Reason of review: Employee/client abuse.
Monetary Loss: $5000.
Preferred solution: Shut the damn doors. and stop breaking the law!.
I didn't like: Way employee clients are treated.
