i worked for bayada on and off for the last year or so. Some of the cases are really nice, great people. For me, it just was'nt a good fit. Many of the cases they offer are long term care type, i worked with many adults with brain injuries. Acute cases are hard to get, and few and far between. Working in critical care, i was bored feeding, walking, bathing, cleaning, etc for one patient. I also had some problems with family- keep in mind, many of the family members have been dealing with their family members illness for many years and are very very particular about how they want things done. The rates in my area are from $22-28 an hr, 22 for long term care, little nursing skill needs, around $25 an hr for vent/trach/kids, and have "nursing skill visits" at rates of $35-60 per 1-2 hr visit. For me, many of the cases they offered were 20-30 miles from me, and i made more than twice the money they offer doing overtime at my hospital. I know several people who love homecare though, so maybe you will.
