Long hours, learning nothing, no real management, no workplace culture. An easy job to do. Very little support and whilst it was satisfying to assist vulnerable people there was no real sense of achievement.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Low pay

Had compliments from all clients, Garda vetting, Fetac level five healthcare support, 2 years experience with good references, stopped getting shifts with no explanation given, see them advertising all the time, I call regularly looking for work but somehow they have none for me.
Pros
Fairly independent work
Cons
Never know when you'll slight management somehow and without so much as a warning get dropped, you have no rights in this line of work, the pay is low for the level of responsibility you're taking on, as well as the risk of injury/illness, there's no sick pay either.

I enjoyed my time with the North Cork office. Team were very supportive. Can have tough days but my co workers were very supportive. I would encourage everyone to work with the elderly

A typical work day would start by going to your clients house, getting them up, giving them a wash and getting them dressed. Then get the client comfortable and feed them their breakfast and cook their dinner for later on in the day. And make sure the client is ok for the day while possibly on their own.
Pros
Meeting new people everyday
Cons
Split hours. Driving from one place to the other in a short amount of time

The clients are great but that's the only thing.
The office can be impossible to get through to unless they want you to work extra shifts.

The rate of pay is too low and there is no pay scale of pay rises at all. No room to work your way up.

I spend most of the little money I do earn, paying for petrol to get from one client to the next.
Pros
Clients
Cons
Hours, pay, no progression, no milage

Nasty underhanded place to work. Patients do not always get the care they deserve due to the terrible scheduling that goes on. I was pulled in every direction on a daily basis

Home Instead at the time I worked with them was collaborative not withstanding that the scheduling was difficult to manage at some point. If you like what you do you can juggle.
Staff are rewarded at the end of the year.

Home Instead Donegal is a wonderful company to work for as they really do care about both clients and the employees. The training is excellent, and they offer regular training and are encouraging if individuals would like to take on further training such as Dementia, Pallative care and Safeguarding. All the staff in the office are kind and respectful. I've always felt that since the Home Instead interview that the staff seem very caring towards clients, often going above and beyond what is expected of them. I have made some great friends at Home Instead and out in the community since becoming a qualified Care Giver.

Homeinstead is a good place to begin working in ireland and to improve your english. The fact that you can talk to many irish people as your clients helps you a lot. And you get experience for your next jobs.

Badly organised and no consideration for travel time or expenses. No consideration for work life balance. Expected for travel miles and would not pay travel expenses. Wages very low.

Not enough hours, not enough money, no days off sometimes for 2 weeks. I'm very disappointed, because I didn't have money for my bills and for food, then I was working in this company 😕

Double booking staff all the time expecting them to be in two places at once. Not sending out enough staff for certain clients, putting their staff at risk of injury. Very underpaid and won't pay milage no matter what they tell you.

Working with home instead senior care is one of the good experience I have ever had. They taught me many things I need to know like Manuel and patients handling, how to work best as team, how to deal with people having dementia etc.
