Not for me! Not enough team work!
Activities Co-ordinator (Former Employee) – Yorkshire – 17 November 2018
I was so excited to get the job as activities coordinator
Having done the job in the past knowing the basics!
It was a new and beautiful care home.
My 1st day no one knew where my paperwork was, I still cracked on. Getting things sorted as best I could.
Some nice members of staff, but most of them were overworked and tired to the bone.
Some staff full of gossip, think they now the job better than you, when they need to focus on what they are doing.And "work"' when family members and bosses are around..
To busy to help you, but you always helping them!
When it was always for the residents.
This was a 3 story care home, it seemed like 3 different companies. Doing activities at times was hard.getting help, carers not brining them up and down
Taking them to the loo, I was forever running around.
Hardly any team work! Lets not even talk about communication!
I hope bupa will recognize activities as a department! Sure heard about it when show arounds were happening.and team work!
I felt this bupa has potential to be good, with the right people and support of your good staff who deserve a thank you once in while.
Of course the residents were the best part.
Check your pay as mine was always wrong too!
Residents, family, some staff
Not enough team work, activities not treated like a department! The gossip!
