I worked there for over a year, they are insane to work for, they call last min and if u don't work they wont give you hour. Will work you 60plus hours no ot and try everything to short you pay. I personal think the owner doesn't know how to run a bussiness. And half the employees treat the elderly bad. They hire who ever can pass a drug test, they don't care how they work with seniors. I've seen them steal meds and not even care for the elderly. Home Instead is a joke

Don't use anyone without putting a nanny cam in their home. Make sure you do an extensive background check. Same goes for a nursing home. You can get a nanny cam at the store across from hucks on parish. You can't trust anyone anymore.

How you do you put a nanny cam in a nursing home without the nursing home operators being aware of it?

I worked one house there and was done.
They put me with someone double my size, who was bed bound, who I couldn't move to bathe, who happen to take a fluid pill and shit everywhere. His girlfriend had to come help. Nice guy for the most part, sad. I wish he didn't have home insteads help. He had a worker stealing money and shit from him, it made me so sad :(

They are really small. Some you can order online that are clocks with nanny cams. Look on-line.

The place is a joke. They pretend to care about the clients so much that it is sickening because all they care about is money. Not clients or employees. Biggest joke of a place.

I was desperate for a job - went to Home Instead. Hired immediately after peeing in a cup and the office chick did the stick test. I told them b/c of child care, I could only work certain days. The next day I get a phone call asking me to work on a time that I listed on my application that I could NOT. This continued for days. Come to think of it, I found it bizarre as well that I'm not a CNA and have never worked in healthcare....yet I was hired instantly. Just my 2 cents.

It's a nonmedical job or something
Don't have to be a CNA for it or special needs jobs. Nursing homes yeah

It's a terrible company to work for. My ex would work anywhere from 60-80 hours a week. It was insane.

It is not owned by same people as comfort keepers. This company is a great company to work for! All the complaints about being called at the last minute are stupid. Did you not remember being told that would happen in orientation? Sometimes things like that can't be prevented. All u gotta do is say no I can't do no last minute shifts and they would leave u alone. Worked for me and I still get hours because I call and ask for them when I want them!

My grandpa has really bad "shakes" that happen when he eats. I am glad that we have someone to take care of him when we are gone but, he still needs his eating aids. They make it so that the shakes don't take over too much. http://www.youcantoocan.com/categories/27_eat...
