I told them I do not want to work in nursing homes but most of the jobs they offered me where in nursing homes in other cities far from where I live.
One time I worked in a nursing home, they said I will be paid £8.00 per hour because the person was very challenging and they assured me there won't be any manual handling involved. When I went in that nursing home they wanted me to lift that person as they said the person is not heavy, I refused therefore they told the agency and the agency did not even confirm that they is no manual handling involved. They did not protect me and did not keep their word.
I had to leave the company because I did not trust them anymore. If I had troubles at home they won't be on my side as they are always for the companies who pay them more money.
