Very satisfying job
Working with lovely staff and residents. We did a lot of fun activities with the residents aswell as personal care. Some residents displayed challenging behaviour but overall it is a very satisfying job.

Amazing Teamwork
Been working for Harbour Healthcare for many years and yes you see the change over of staff, like everywhere yet the best still stand. New staff with a fresh eye are appreciated and new ideas taken on board. Manager returned from maternity to Help with Covid & new Deputy is amazing, working all hours to make ends meet through this pandemic crisis. Regular staff are usually flexible to pick up shifts with ÂŁ2ph overtime rate, residents are just fantastic and are treated as though they are family. Homely & relaxed with excellent team members đź‘Ť

If you have other options, take those instead.
One member of staff was an absolute angel; always very caring and sincere. Most staff are simply lazy, and will leave buzzers going whilst they play on their phones at the dining room table. A few members of staff are disgusting human beings; they bully and abuse other members of staff, and their behaviour has directly and negatively impacted the residents. I have seen staff talking to residents like they are dirt.
The management are inept, and are unable to do anything about the problems at the home. They displayed poor decision making skills, and shouldn't be playing manager when the wellbeing of the residents is at stake.

If you have no other options whatsoever and you need a job fast, then i wish you luck with your time here. Otherwise get a job somewhere else.

Team work, Family
At such a difficult time of this virus, the staff are working hard and morale has been kept high. The residents are cared for like family when they are unable to see their own families. Their is a family atmosphere within the team and the management team who are always on hand to support the team and the home.
Pros
Fab care, happy residents, happy relatives

Great Team
Considering the current covid-19 pandemic, the staff are working 110% supporting not only the residents and relatives but the teams itself. Staff morale is high and there appears a good family unit amongst the teams. The management are very supportive with an open door policy day and night.
Pros
Job satisfaction, team work
Cons
none

Close knit staff team.
Most staff were friendly, however, a few were clear if they had an issue with you, making it difficult to work properly. Quality of care provided by care staff was excellent and ancillary staff all happy to help and support.

Not the best place to work
Management are not up to standard, their is a negative atmosphere and too much responsibility placed on care staff with a poor wage. Would not recommend a friend to work for them.

Shameful.
The home has always had its issues but it used to be doable as all of the staff and management would come together as a team and work together to solve any issues. However that is not the case now. Most problems just get swept under the rug unless you are one of managements favourites. There is always the blame game going on. Managements take on their employees mental health is appalling. They say that they want to help anyway they can when really they do not care. Brilliant clients though 🧡

Great place to work
I am a current employee and have worked for harbour for a few years, it is a lovely, warm, friendly home from home. The care given is of a high standard, cleaners are fantastic, kitchen are working hard to improve which it has done in the last few weeks receiving 5 stars!!! The management are approachable and will help not only with work issues but also support you if your having issues at home. I would recommend to work there just come and find out for yourself :)

Great place to work. Friendly enviroment.
Ive worked here for over 18 months. Love the home and the enviroment. Staff are friendly, considerate and show 100% compassion and empathy. Management are fantastic, very supportive. Could not wish to work in a better home. The food standards have recently risen following and inspection which achieved a 5 star rating. This has only happened in the past couple of weeks.

Like a Victorian workhouse!
What a terrible place work for. Management have their favourite staff. They have friends and family working there. If your face don’t fit then you are out.

Awful place to work
Would not recomend even considering this shambles! Staff are bullied, it's a case of if your face fits! Long hours for awful pay! No communication skills even with a manager and TWO deputy managers, carers voices are not heard if any suggestions are made! The management are never in the wrong always gets blamed on seniors/carers, if you hand your notice in management become awkward to work for. Very good staff leaving due to this.

Dont do it
Pros
The shifts eventually ended
Cons
Long hours, little to none support

Terrible management
Terrible place to work too much favouritism, the manager has family and friends working there who do as they please. Staff are bullied but management do nothing about it, and this is a home with one manager and TWO deputy managers. Staff turnover is very high and lots of good long serving carers are not appreciated and are leaving. I wouldn’t recommend joining this company.
Pros
Some decent staff
Cons
Long hours for little pay, too much favouritism

not a very nice place to work
Found the senior management would prefer to hide problems, not very caring, do not listen. Only good if your face fits. un supportive, not much positive to say about my experience. Would not recommend going to work there.... your a faceless number to be used. Care is a joke!

Poor Management
Extremely poor management, very rude, breaches confidentiality causing arguments between staff, lies all the time and very unsupportive. Staff constantly working short. As a result a large number of staff are leaving!!!!
