Health Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 29 November 2017
Good team to work within but obviously this varies from ward to ward hospital to hospital. 12 hour shifts days and nights. Rewarding but challenging job. Anti-social hours is hardest part of the job. Great job if you enjoy always being busy with things to do.
Support worker (Former Employee) – Redcar – 15 October 2018
A home that cares more about saving money and trying to get a bonus than a good living environment for service users. Management are clueless ane bullies, don't care about staff or service users, rarely see them unless you are in trouble. You can have a high qualification and work extremely hard to try and improve career is pointless you need to have no qualification but very good at sucking up to management. Training is at a minimal lucky if you get one a year, there is online training if there is a computer to use. Some staff and seniors are good but most hide in the office so you don't see them for the shift.
Student (Former Employee) – Abbey House Malvern Worcestershire – 12 October 2018
I've just finished a 5 week placement with these lovely people. Never having worked in the field before I was nervous to say the least but I shouldn't have worried! From the outset the all the staff were welcoming and made me feel at ease. I have learned so much from both the staff and the patients alike and I shall miss them a lot. Although the work can be undeniably testing at time the rewards far out weigh the challenges. I would recommend Abbey House as a great place to work.
