Great for career progression
Great team and great residents. Homely atmosphere, no two days are ever the same, but it's fun and rewarding to make a difference to the lives of people living with dementia

Worst Management ever
Worked my legs out with no appreciation and contributed immensely to changes in approach to supporting people with complex needs. The company could do by not employing couples . They pretend to
Pros

Try another home
There is a bully culture all is fine in the beginning but you are expected to work alone and if you struggle there is no support.
There is a lot of e learning that you are not told about and there is pressure to complete it while working.

Good knowledgeable care home
Worked in care previous to caring homes and I 100% learnt more at Claydon house. I have a level 3 diploma in health and social care, so I had a lot of knowledge beforehand but caring homes puts it into practice. The manager is very knowledgable and is there to help you and give advice when needed. You can learn a lot as a standard carer but can also move up in your job. Just unfortunate they do not offer much more money.

problems from the top
The team I work with is brilliant, but head office don’t want to spend the money on things to improve the home and service. All staff are grossly underpaid at the site I work at, with jobs within the company being advertised up to £2 per hour more in the local area. Work here can be rewarding, but often it feels like I take one step forward and 3 steps back.
Pros
Flexibility which is specific to my role, good manage to at home level
Cons
Poor management at the top

I've learnt how to manage my time to fit in all the tasks I'm given in my job description. I've gained more communication and listening skills. I find the job quite tiring but its simple to do. the staff are very friendly and all in all its a very warm, friendly and safe environment to work in. very ideal.

Worked in head office team with a buLLy of a manager and every one knew Yet did nothing. No one cares no one listens and nothing will ever be done! Steer clear if you value sanity and health.

Avoid
Management don’t listen , talks down to you . Don’t always get your breaks as no cover . £9ph not worth what you have to do . Not consistent in residential care , .
Moved to different units expected to know what residents need at no notice .

Lack of information ref pay holidays and wages . They say it’s one team it’s certainly not it’s every shift for themselves not what the residents needs it’what staff can be bothered doing

Managers are there just to look pretty but they don't know nothing. They think they are superiour.

Collaborative work place
Although it was a busy work place, there were collaborative team members and seniors. The hardest part it was when was short staff or new carers from agencies or when you have to work with a member of staff which is not giving all the necessary support.

Stay away
Truly toxic ,awful environment. Management do not care about the residents or hca, nurses are lazy and don’t help at all. Careers being called a bunch of kids who are supposed to do what a nurse tells them. No respect for carers at all. Understaffed on daily basis, lying about dependency levels so they don’t have to put more staff on the floors. Honestly people stay away, no amount of money is worth this stress and this level of disrespect. They will treat you like an ant. It will never be fully staffed. They will lie about it as well. And blame everything that is wrong on hca.
Pros
Lovely residents
Cons
Everything

Fantastic company to work for
I work at East Hill House in Liss,Hampshire,part of the caring homes group, I have worked here for many years.
I find the home and staff team are fantastic to work with.The residents became my addition family.The training I received was brilliant, I have been given so many opportunities to further my training, and been offered chances to excel in my job role! I’ve been to many other homes which are part of the caring homes group, and can see that the standards are all the same throughout
