Not supportive

I have worked for CareUK for almost 3 years and every suggestion, report or complaint has not been taken seriously nor is it followed up. Management are rude and do not care about your mental or physical well-being as will keep physically aggressive residents even if they draw blood from staff, which has happened to me plenty of times. I have been told that it’s not managements problems if someone feels unwell and they will not properly allocate staff after finding out someone has called in sick but will pretend to. Staff are not part of a union and never will be so don’t expect any benefits. The work itself isn’t actually that bad and some care homes are good but it’s the management that is the issue so can’t really avoid it lol


Free lunch (even if it’s tasteless)


The management

Worked at Perry Manor for 7 years both day and night

Started at Perry Manor a year after it opened, great team and great atmosphere. Over the years, we had a few different management team changes which were not always a positive thing. Sadly, the last 18 months of my employment there were not overly positive. The shifts were understaffed and the staff on duty worked very hard with poor resources. Only when a known CQC visit was due were we fully staffed. So much pressure on the nursing staff during shift .


Most of the staff lovely


Long days and usually no break

Overworked, under appreciated

Low pay, overworked, and under appreciated. And kindness constantly being taken advantage of as a weakness. Very racially motivated, and clicky staff environment.

Good place to work

It is a small family like environment however some staffs can be a bit overwhelming and dominating. Keep it absolute professional relationship to succeed in this place. All in all I like it here.

Fun place to work lovely staff

Mills meadow is a lovely care home. It doesn’t feel like a care home more like a hotel with a lovely coffee shop. You can have a drink and your free lunch in the coffee shop. It has lovely gardens too . The staff are all very kind caring and helpful.


Free lunches


No healthcare

Great people terrible managers and false promises

In a day to day work it was good with the team that I was with, I was recommended by head nurse to be a team leader and when I first spoke to this with management I told them I can only do day shifts and gradually night shifts within 6/7 months due recent bervement which they was ok about it and said they will start training by next week. 1 month passed 2 months passed 3 months! And heard nothing from them, I asked and they said said it will soon but it never came

Poor management

When I started I was excited to be joining a large company that looked to be offering good things, staff were friendly and some had been working there since the home opened, the deputy manager was lovely and really cared, once she left everything quickly went downhill! Management changed twice in the short time I was there, most recent manager brought in alot of their own staff they'd carted around from home to home, these individuals were rude and obnoxious, protected by the manager and given promotions over more experienced staff members even though they spent most of the day off the units and in the smoking area - with the manager! All in all alot of great care and support staff were pushed out if they spoke up about any issues, current management favour some staff members over others, these people will get what they want and do little to no work throughout the day. I would not recommend working here unless there was a big change.


Residents lovely


Management awful

Limited trajectory

Working in MSK service was good, but continued professional development didn’t encourage company support. Changes of practice were dictated in such a way that didn’t offer options. It became a pain centromeres service and all employees were pushed into this even after job descriptions were focused in a different manner.


Annual leave, sick leave


Mandatory 12 h shift pattern, breaks not always honoured, double booking patients, low pay

Uncare uk

Should remame Uncare uk. Worked there for 3 1/2 years. Absolutely loved the residents. The Management was diabolical. Wouldn't even speak to alot of us. Run more like an institution than a Care home. Very toxic work environment.

Care UK: A Disappointing Work Experience with Ineffective Management and Mixed Employee Interactions

My experience working at Care UK was marked by several significant issues that ultimately made it a disappointing and frustrating environment. The management's inability to listen, the lack of consideration for employee time, and mixed interactions with colleagues all contributed to this negative experience.

Stressful environment

Would only work here if you work well under stress and can manage to sort out problems alone , it’s a fast paced job with huge amounts of paper work besides the care aspect .


Get food while at work, can progress with apprenticeship


Stressful, no support from higher up and no work life balance
