HCA in Christchurch, Dorset
Lovely company, great office staff, bad pay.
I've worked with Alina for a year now, I do enjoy it, the office staff are lovely and helpful and the other carers are great. My only issue is the pay is not so great. You can be out working from 7am until 10:30pm but only get paid half of that. You don't get paid enough mileage and you dont get paid enough per call for what you deal with.

Carer/Ambassador in Bristol South
Supportive, Rewarding & Valued
There is no typical day: we receive our rotas a few days before the working week begins so any changes or queries can be sorted in plenty of time. Management will do their very best to accomodate time off if needed which is why there is a work/life balance - you can work all the hours you would like. The salary is certainly better than what most Care Companies offer - but then Alina are certainly not most Care Companies! They value their staff, and yes we work hard, but because we want to, not because we feel we have to. The Bristol South Management team are so incredibly supportive and are there to metaphorically hold our hands, put an arm around our shoulders, offer any advice and guidance that is needed - anytime, day or night. Alina Bristol South encourage a culture where all us carers not only feel incredibly valued but also very involved with all our clients in our care. We have regular meetings (online at the moment) where we can, at different times to make sure everyone can get involved; communication with management and carers and between carers themselves is excellent and always constant ensuring the care of our clients is always paramount.The hardest part of the job is learning to switch off in "down time". Because we have such a supportive management team, a wonderful team of carers, and to be honest, incredibly lucky and privileged in looking after the clients we do, when I do have time off I still feel the need to know what's going on!!Whether you are an experienced carer, or about to dip your toe into the health and social care world; in fact whatever walk of life, I thororoughly recommend Alina Homecare. I have been with Alina for almost a year and am now an Ambassador and taking my NVQs through Alina's academy, as well as doing lots of other relevant online courses that can be done in my own time. Alina I am sure, are one of the few Care Companies that not only takes precious care of their clients and their families; but the Carers and all the staff that work for them too!
