Home Instead Senior Care

Home Instead Senior Care is an international leader in non-medical senior care. The Home Instead Senior Care family network of locally owned franchise offices was developed with a passionate desire to be a trusted in-home care agency, to help families keep their aging mother, father, grandparents or friends in their home as they grow older. Reading through Home Instead’s history, you will find a rapidly growing franchise network that began with the desire to serve the needs of one 100 year old grandmother of 55 grandchildren. Today, thousands of relationships are formed daily through CAREGivers who provide home care help to clients and their families who desire assistance with activities that used to be simple. Tasks like grabbing a can of soup from the top shelf, opening the mail, reading a book, folding laundry, tying shoelaces or scrapbooking family history are not as easy as they used to be for many seniors. No matter where a senior lives, in their home, in an assisted living facility or even a nursing home, Home Instead Senior Care is currently providing millions of hours of senior services annually through a network of more than 1,000 franchise offices throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, United Kingdom, Portugal, Switzerland, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Finland, Austria, Northern Italy and Puerto Rico. The world will soon have over one hundred million individuals over the age of 65, and Home Instead Senior Care desires to help many of those individuals by providing non-medical based, home care services to those who desire it. These senior home care services may include assistance with trips to the doctor, reminders to take the right medication at the right time, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, shopping and even Alzheimer's and dementia care. The result is companionship allowing seniors to feel safe and independent while they age in place in the home they've lived in for years.

When I told the owners how old I was (58), they were very pleased to hear it and told me I had a lot to give with my life experiences, knowledge and wisdom.

I was replaced by a younger employee (caregiver) on a client I had for 4 years. I was told I was getting up in age, and may start having difficulty doing the job. and i just turned 64! If you’re looking to work with this company, better be under 50! they are not age friendly.

I was hired for part time work with the understanding that I would be offered suitable work with hours between 20-25 per week. This has not been the case however even though I'm available more than 100 hours each week! It seems like they cater more to younger people and more to women then male caregivers which I see as bias. You might have a good schedule for a couple of weeks then a client will pass and then your stuck with less hours for way too long while they"try" to find you someone. I find this very stressful because of the lack of steady work and hours to make ends meet. It's either that they have too many employees or not enough clients to make it a comfortable work environment. Staffing needs much help in order to keep good employees.

The training at Home Instead was great but too long. Everyone was so friendly. I was offered an assignment right away but it didn't work out since the client withdrew her request I was disappointed. They told me they would be getting other assignments but they called me about assignments in the morning but I was clear that afternoons was the only time I can work and had it on my record. After that I would call in occasionally with no results. Meanwhile, it has been over 6 months or more since they have contacted me. I had worked once for Visiting Nurses but they no training at all which is why I wanted to stay with Home Instead.

They understand that older adults actually have a lot in common with those they care for.

As an employee of Home Instead, I can say we are very age friendly and accommodating to your other commitments when it comes to scheduling. We have a variety of employees, from students to retirees. We appreciate all of our Caregivers and know how dedicated they are to our clients.

The staff is really friendly and nice. They will work with you if you need to rearrange your hours for dr. appointments etc. The only issue I have with them is they need to give raises occasionally. The pay is not that great for what you have to do and how far you drive.

I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care part-time (More than 3 years) You can accept only the shifts you can fit into your schedule. There is a lot of work available once the snow birds arrive so you might get a lot of calls. They like to recognize exceptional caregivers so if you fall into that category be prepared for a lot of praise. The office staff is nice. The receptionist is friendly and makes you feel at home.

Home Instead at the location I work is very age friendly. The owner of the franchise and the managers are all over 55 so they realize that life experience is valuable. I am very happy working for them..

The location I work for is very age friendly as long as you can meet the physical demands of the job, such as protecting clients who may be a fall risk, etc.

Testimonials:

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
