how do i sum this placement up,in one word?
i had worked for this placement for two years and quite frankly found the lack of support distressing.
i had been physically/psychologically abused by a tenant and received no support from upper management.
there was a time,i was eager to return to work,as i love helping those who cannot help themselves so well.
but,i began to dread it.
so did others,subjected to abuse...in fact many left in my early days.
approximately four or five.
quite frankly the management or rather lack of...is appalling
if a place wished to maintain a caring vibe?
then surely it would look after those,that look after persons in their care.
and respect,that some do have mental health,themselves.
the staff themselves are amazing and very supportive individuals (the ones i had a pleasure of working with long term) we were like a family.
again,i say were because most were unfairly dismissed,myself included,by someone who doesn't know what they're doing and is very un-empathetic.
long hours, mismanaged
