No care comfort or companionship for their staff
Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Southampton, Hampshire – 17 April 2019
management offers no support to staff
they care more about the appearance and getting bums on bed than they do about the residents and their needs, thankfully the carers on the floor support the residents fantastically and make up for managements lack of support.
the breaks are ridiculous, working for 12 hours and having only 40mins all day to shovel food into you and if you smoke puff as many as you can before your break is over.
Your expected to attend all training and meetings which are always on your day off and don't think your days off are work free cause you'll definitely receive a couple of texts from management begging you to come in as they have once again failed to provide enough staff to cover the floor.
understaffed is a huge issue as they see the seniors as on the floor which they aren't due to them being busy with medications so you could have 3 staff on the floor covering 51 residents but if your lucky head office might stop by which will mean too many staff as remember appearance is everything to Hartford care.
you'll meet Lovely residents
terrible breaks, bad management, no support, understaffed so overworked
