Early starts & late nights. Rushing around whilst watching the clock. Very stressful. Far away locations to travel to. Learnt a lot. Chaotic office. Continually pestered to do extra even on a day off. Loved the job and really miss the people I visited.

When working for home instead there was a very relaxed atmosphere. It was also serious when it came to their clients. They are a company who care they care about their employees and are always there for you if needed
Care Assistant in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire
Low pay and low mileage rate for the areas they serve no appreciation by management made to feel like just number. Employed on a zero hour contract hours would fluctuate each week they promise you to see the same clients but that’s not true. Expect you to travel long distances to serve one client. No shadowing offered and training was appalling. Would avoid

Challenging and rewarding
Home care can be very challenging and stressful yet so rewarding to help the clients achieve whatever they require, there is personal care attributed to the service in some client requirements which bothers some people yet we've all been helped with it in life.
Caregiver in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire
They will love you when your start, but if you don’t take extra work on they will start making you feel bad and feel like you can’t ever say no even on days off! They will start to tell you about your availability and basically have to be available 24/7 7 days a week and on call constantly to pick up calls where people have gone off sick which happens often and they don’t do anything about! Same people taking on extra work and burning themselves out no recognition or thanks. They forget you have a home life and make you feel guilty. Clients are lovely and most of the care staff. Office staff are rude and are very clicky if you don’t fit in they will make you very aware of this. Completely unprofessional. This company need people that are single and have no responsibilities don’t bother if you have family and children. Huge turnover of staff they recruit constantly to make up for the people that are leaving every week.
