Spark is an amazingly supportive workplace, with the perfect amount of independence and support. Everyone is equal, and everyone cares so much about their clients, and each other. I so look forward to coming in to work each day, and am SO glad I found this company.

Amazing and supportive workplace

I am so happy that I joined Spark! It has been incredible to be matched with clients based on my skills and interests! It has been an absolutely incredible experience being able to work with some of the most vulnerable people in Ottawa and working for a company who cares so deeply about both their clients and staff! There is so much collaboration with several other professionals to ensure the best care for clients and it has been amazing to work as part of a team to provide the best care possible for all clients. I would strongly recommend Spark Lifecare to anyone who is looking for professional, reliable and supportive care.

Productive and fun workplace

You have to be 100% committed to improvising constantly and being independent, although the management is very supportive and encouraging the job can be tough but they do give you your own agency. However, youre considered self-employed so no benefits, pay is decent though and you can make your own schedule, very understanding and flexible management.

Good stepping stone into the Health/Social work sector

Very welcoming company. You are contracted out by Spark Lifecare with no training/no help with clients case. Felt more like a business than actually trying to help the clients in need. Issues/concerns tend to never be resolved.

Points positifs

Easy Interview Process

Points négatifs

Hours unstable, pay monthly, lack of guidance and communication

Where to begin...

I couldn’t be more thrilled to have joined Spark two months ago. It gives me a sense of belonging, while also presenting me with opportunities to help people in need. I’ve worked for many agencies in the past (I am a Child & Youth Worker) and you often don’t have a lot of contact with higher management (CEO’s, etc.), however, Spark is SO connected. I feel as connected and supported by the leadership team, as I do with my every day shift partner. Spark values it’s caregivers and doesn’t let our hard word go unnoticed. They’re always finding ways to thank their employees - I won a $500 bonus last week for being a great caregiver (keeping communication open, clocking in/out correctly, etc.) I’m continuously surprised by the appreciation, respect and consistently that this agency provides to its team and I’m so happy to be a part of the team.

Amazing job with amazing experiences!

This job gives you the flexibility to work when you want. You get to meet amazing new people as clients that are just as excited to meet you! The people you work with are amazing, the management team is fantastic and will do everything the can to help you succeed, your fellow teammates are wonderful and are always around to offer support. I’ve never been so happy with a job decision I’ve made, and I can’t wait to continue to learn and grow with this agency !

Basically like being in an awesome family of likeminded caregivers

Spark Lifecare provides the sort of warm environment you've always wanted to work in. I've worked with Spark for over a year as a caregiver and then a manager, and the community of caregivers here are so friendly and competent I would hire any of them to look after a family member in a heart beat. It's a wonderful work environment that manages to both provide support to workers and encourage the forming of personal connections through it's digital platforms. Caregivers have the freedom to work with clients they truly share an affinity with while being able to manage their own schedules. It can seem like a scary jump if you're coming from full time regular shift work but the trade off is the true freedom and joy that working one-on-one in a supported team will bring you.

Points négatifs

It takes time to build up your schedule, you have to put in effort on the digital platforms to socialize with the team

Communication, Collaboration, and Support - A company that truly does care differently.

Spark Lifecare sets the example for providing care in Ottawa and surrounding areas. The unique structure focuses on matching caregivers with clients based on mutual interests, skill sets, and experience. They demonstrate respect for work-life balance, thoughtfulness in matches, and support for caregivers in every way. They use programs that make day-to-day work life smooth and the communication is unrivaled. I continue to be impressed by the effort that this company puts forth to make the experience positive, inclusive, and mutually beneficial for all parties. Despite not having met any of the Spark HQ staff, I feel that they genuinely care about my job satisfaction and they go above and beyond to make me feel welcome, comfortable, and supported. I've learned the importance of working for a company and with clients that you deeply respect, and whose values align with your own. From check-ins on tough days, to incentives, to care packages, Spark seems to have thought of everything in making my work experience as rewarding as possible. I love going to work every day and hope that everyone can have an opportunity to work for a company like Spark Lifecare - they really do care differently.

Points positifs

Outstanding communication, collaborative teams, welcome care package, strategic matches, work-life balance, excellent programs, solution-focused, support-oriented, fair compensation, training opportunities

Points négatifs

Pay is monthly

A job unlike any other

At Spark, I feel like an integral part of a comprehensive team of people with varied talents who care about people. We grow and learn together as humans to be better to ourselves, each other and our clients with access to support and information for gender inclusion and diversity as well as mental health support. Every day I wake up and I am grateful I have a job I love with people who support and encourage me to do my best but also recognize the challenges of being human.

Points positifs

Lots of support to excel in your position

Points négatifs

Hours can vary

Wonderful, supportive, unique work environment

I am currently working as a caregiver at Spark! Spark has been the most incredible, inclusive work environment. From day one, Spark has been extremely welcoming and supportive. Spark has been the first company to make me feel completely respected and valued. I have had many opportunities to work with amazing coworkers and to improve my skills and abilities by continuing my education/personal growth through Spark University courses. I am honoured to be apart of a company that provides client-centred care, and to be able to help make a positive impact in our clients lives.

Points positifs

Flexible hours, amazing co-workers, awesome work environment, educational opportunities, new connections

Can't emphasize this enough: such an amazing place to work!

I have only been working at Spark Lifecare officially for about a month. I interviewed for a position back in June, however, I did not have my First Aid/CPR at the time and could not take the course due to Covid-19. On that note, the management at Spark was sooooo understanding and patient with me. They ensured to stay in contact with me and then when I was able to take the course, they were able to match me with an amazing client. Spark allows me to build confidence in the helping profession and additional help is only a message away. I am excited to see where this job takes me.

Points positifs

Endless amount of support, flexible hours, accurate with client matching

Points négatifs

Contracts can end at any time, but opportunities are always popping up

I came to work at Spark lifecare part time which increased to full time hours Monday to Friday.

Part time hours began in 2017 and increased when the client required full time care after surgery. My employment of the past 3 yrs. has been enjoyable and professional. There has been several opportunities to participate in a number of learning and social forums, which some I have taken advantage of. Great company.

Different. Fresh. Supportive. Team oriented.

I have been with Spark for almost 5 months and I don't know where to begin… Their matching process is great! They really put effort into trying to ensure the best match for client and caregiver, which goes a long way. Management has been helpful and supportive. They're very client-focused and also very supportive of the people who work with them. When working with Spark, I feel like I'm part of a team. Spark is doing something different and I genuinely feel honored to be a part of it. The only problem with working with Spark is that I wish I'd found them years ago!!

Life Changing Job... Just add your resume.

Spark Lifecare is more than a team of incredible Caregivers and Care Specialists. Spark is a family that will give you a creative platform to grow, expand your knowledge and experiences in caregiving, and give you the opportunity to change lives through care. The gratification from seeing, knowing, or hearing how much you have helped someone is incomprehensible until you start. You will hear of everyone's inspiring stories, and soon enough you are making your own. Even if this is not your forever job, you will grow mentally, spiritually, and emotionally alongside all of the other remarkable caregivers, which cannot be achieved at any other place like this. Spark really cares, and if you do too, this is the job for you.

An amazing team!

I've only been with Spark for about a month at this point but I can honestly say the management here is full of the nicest and most genuine people. Although you work independently with clients you never feel alone or unsupported as there's always a great team of people who reply quickly and are very helpful. It's so rewarding to find clients you truly connect with, but keep in mind that it can take a while to get set up with a full caseload of clients. If you're on the fence about applying, do it, you won't regret it!

An amazing place to work!

Before I started working at Spark a few months ago, I heard about the company through Indeed! The more I learned about Spark, the more I thought man, is it too good to be true? An amazingly supportive work environment, the freedom in creating your own schedule, a matching process that connects you to clients where you can make the best impact, on top of the already satisfying and rewarding job of caring for others?! Amazing!! I am so thankful that I found Spark. They encourage you to be your unique and wonderful self, because they recognize it’s those factors that make you a perfect fit for the unique and wonderful clients that need your support!
