All of these "home health" agencies are nothing more than a cleaning service pretending to be home health 90 percent of the clients just want some one to clean their house and cook a little lunch for them ... that's it ... does not matter whether you are PCA or CNA ... it's the same thing, you are an underpaid MAID !! and the admins. and RN's know this .. everything anymore is personal care and that does not mean ANYTHING !!!

So true which is why I don't work anymore as a PCA or CNA, your just a glorified housekeeper if your working home health and your a certified butt wiper if your a CNA working for a nursing home. I'm going to college for another line of work and can't wait till graduation!!!!

Alecia and donna are very rude and money hungry jerks! I am a former employee. They do not care about their clients. I reported issues and nothing was taken care of. If you are sick or miss any hours they will force you to makeup any missed hours within the week whether you are better or nor. Later I was accused of soliciting! I tried to clarify I was in no way trying to take their clients to another agency and they threatened to report me to the police! Needless to say I no longer work for them and am much happier. Would not recommend to ANYone EVER! STAY FAR AWAY!

That company is a frickin JOKE!!! They treat their workers and at least a couple hand fulls of their clients like crap. they sling you back in forth between clients to the point the clients don't want anyone in their home anymore. Speaking of missing PAY.....HaHaHa, not only have they not sent me my last pay check and mileage, but they haven't sent the last 5 weeks i worked worth of child support in, and i had to call the cops up to their office to get my 2nd to last check

I can say this unless you have worked as a PCA or CNA don't bash us. What we do for our people we look after is hard work for some of us. We bust our ass 40hrs a week. Yeah the pay ain't great and it could be better. But some of us do it cause it what we love to do.. some of us ain't cold hearted like ya.
