care assistant in belsfield
Very differentI only worked at belsfield for a few weeks and that was enough. There are a couple of really nice helpful staff there. but there are so many issues I had with that place I myself found it very difficult to deal with, it is a case of do as I say and not as I do. there are some really nice caring carers there. you don't expect to get on with everybody. But all I can say is if you are an outgoing friendly person and you would bend over backwards to help people this is not the job for you. but you have to work there for a few weeks to decide I was only there for 2 weeks and what I experienced was enough. apply and find out for yourself. and form your own opinion. because i have so many issues it is unreal. even down to how residents are dressed. if i saw my mother or father like some of them i would be horrified. also being able to speak different languages would be an advantage. but if your main spoken language is English you may find it difficult to keep quiet.

This place is another levelWas really excited about joining, the first few days were really great. then went downhill. if you were placed on a 1-1 it means you sit with that person till they settle. then you sit in the corridor on a chair waiting for events to happen, you could end up assisting with as many as 1 to 3 or 4 residents. then you are given a care plan of that resident which you write in whats happened ( legal document ) if the randoms you write are not good enough they are torn out and someone's rewrites it, ( they don't want to lose the funding) not only are you given notes or the 1-1 you are with but u could be given up to 3 or 4 more plans to fill in about a resident you may never see. how can you do a care plan if you never see that person? TO MANY CHIEFS NOT ENOUGH INDIANS. well everyone thinks they are chiefs. gossip is massive little support. to many non-speaking English. and even if they can speak English they choose not to or pretend not to understand. yet they can do care plans in English quite good
Over protective managementThe title sums up working there.Despite the years of experience you have ,it is one way or the high way.Staff dint understand their roles ,and broken e glish doesn't help the people who live there .Important areas of care become missed.An HR manager should be someone who can nurture the staff ,and not condemn,someone who nedds to play an important role in retention of staff ,and be approachable..Did not find an Outstanding area to be working in..lots of confusion about roles ,and whats needed.. This is not fair to people who live there.
Care Assistant in Blackpool
Long hours, good team, weekly payed so easier to budget. Hardest things are getting used to the long hours and remembering all the residents names. I learned a lot about people from all walks of life. Management are very approachable
Health Care Assistant in Blackpool
Poor management, very cliquey, not the best at supporting the service users. The interview is easy. Informal and you’re guaranteed a job there regardless of who you are. They’re after filling positions and that’s it. Management are rubbish. Complaints not generally taken seriously especially if it’s regarding nursing staff not following through with concerns from carers regarding service users wellbeing. A lot of the care staff cut corners when it comes to the personal care and wellbeing of service users and communication amongst staff is bad. Arguing and not sharing the work load.
