Great place to work.

Before starting I had been around activites in my last job an decided I would like to work around the residents forfilling some fun ,chatting an assistant in there daily routine .iv learned to move a resident from chair to wheelchair. assist in meals. Interact through activites .the staff are very welcoming.

Soul destroying

I can’t begin to describe how undervalued I felt Junior nurses with only 2 years or less clinical experience promoted to senior positions. Experienced nurses propping them up. Dangerous culture overall. Turnover of staff ridiculous

Opportunity for development but no management support

Working in Care UK can be rewarding but also distressing. There are many opportunities for self-development. Free food all day for all staff members. There is also short staff all the time and no management support.

Great work environment

Ok place to work, the people you work with makes it a great environment but the pay is not the best and they don't value their employees that much. I worked there for 3 years

Well paid

Well paidTreated wellCan be cliquey, but that’s the same with anywhere you work!Get a free meal on shift which is a real uplift. Sometimes there isn’t a lot of consistency as to which section you work in.

Compassionate and caring always a smiling staff member to great people

I love the care home and residents. Staff have come along way working through the Covid pandemic was tough. Not just for the staff but the residents also not being able to see their family and loved ones had a big impact on their well-being. Staff took on the role engaging more with residents to boost their morale. The staff pulled together as a team and management also helped. I would say it made us as a team at Smythlodge really show what team work is all about.

If you do things the wrong way and quickly so you can sit down and do nothing for the rest of the night and dont actually work then this is the place for you. Also if you like being part of a click which i didn't then you are singled out and up for all sorts of horrible stuff that is done against you .


End of shift


Start of shify

Tiring long shifts

Can be good sometimes depending on who is working on the shift mist if the staff are good managers are different category don't listen to what you say

The unit I worked in was OK. Staff really cliquey but otherwise manageable. The other units however were a disgrace, letting residents go days without adequate bathing. No wonder the Care inspectorate closed it down.

Good place to work

It's good not great. As all HCA it's pretty much minimum. Has the clicks like most jobs do. Hours are long and thankless most of the time. You will not get a GEM award unless you are in the clicks. Being able to work full time over less days is great though. Also don't get sick, you will go on a disaplinary


Free Meals, amazing residents


Poor management style. Low pay. Long hours. Can't get poorly without being told off.
