Individual plans include accidental, cancer, heart/stroke, hospital, and Medicare supplement.

Retirement 401K Plan

Heart ‘n Home makes an annual safe harbor matching contribution of 100% of the first 3% of compensation contributed by the employee and 50% of the next 2% contributed by the employee.

Advanced Certification CHPN

Certified Hospice and Palliative Nursing – After working at Heart ‘n Home for a minimum of two years, Heart ‘n Home will pay the first CHPN test ($500.00) for those eligible (CNAs, Nurses, and Medical Directors). If the test is failed then the employee would be responsible for the fee to retake the test. The certifications are valid for four years. On the fourth year, you must retake the exam to recertify.

Company Vehicles

In an effort to become more socially responsible, Heart ‘n Home has acquired vehicles that will be more Eco-friendly for our environment and help our employees to have reliable, safe cars to reach our patients. We have a fleet of company vehicles assigned to eligible full-time employees who qualify according to mileage driven and a vehicle needs assessment.

Earned Leave

The goal of providing generous earned leave is twofold: first, we want our employees to enjoy time with family and friends and second, it prevents burnout. Earned leave will be available upon hire. Employees earn 8 hours each month for the first 4 years, with earned leave increasing thereafter. That’s 12 days of vacation a year! Part-time employees also receive generous earned leave hours with a calculation based upon the hours they work.
