Activities Assistant in Horsham, West Sussex
on 29 March 2021
Terrible Management
I worked at barchester for two weeks and I was appalled Firstly, I was running events on my own which was never discussed or even mentioned Secondly, there was no care or respect from other staff members when I needed help Thirdly, when a resident is acting out or doing something inappropriate, nurses should help support and take over the situation and not let someone who isn’t trained to do their jobI emailed management about these issues and never received a response. This just proved to me they didn’t care and all they cared about was themselves. There was no pride in their jobs and honestly couldn’t believe I was left to my own devicesI have worked in many places but never have I quit after only two weeksThe training was full on however more training is needed for entertainment as my role was not to be a nurse and it was never to be Carer. I was there to provide entertainment and Activities for the residents Lastly, for the nurses the just leave the residents in my activities with no communication to myself about their needs or well being is disgraceful...I am truly saddened with the staff there and they should be more respectful towards the Activities Staff and learn about care and respect for us and the residents...Even after I left, I received no phone call, no email, no discussion... I felt like I was just a fly on the wall to themSo Disappointed...
Head Chef in Wells
on 13 April 2021
Great place to be clearly set standards this is what I like
I been in 2 homes previously now I joined new build in wells as head chef what I like about Barchester is very high standards job descriptions are detailed and training is excellent. I never thought that care home can look like 5 star hotel and this is what Barchester do provide outstanding service. And choice of food is endless.

I would never recommend working for barchester
It was worst experience of my life working for barchester, atmosphere and the way I was treat was disgusting. There was staff given each other pedicures and not looking after residents.

Upton Bay Care Home ⭐⭐
I have recently started working for barchester health care January 2021. In the new build Upton Bay in Poole.. The home is outstanding. Build and interior are high standards and it really shows they think to the minor details, yet makes a big difference.Great members of staff all so friendly and welcoming, and all run by a great management team!!..Great company and home to work for 🤗

No support
I worked for barchester just for 4 months as head housekeeper the job didn't match what I was doing.I had hardly any support no real training just left to get on with it.When I asked for help it was never given had no staff for size of the home. But was expected to keep on top of everything.lack of communication as well I would definitely not work at another barchester.
