Care Assistant in Melton Mowbray
on 27 May 2021
Very strict place to work and not many breaks ,management a bit belittling and favoured certain staff.
Unrealistic targets and over loaded with work due to being unstaffed, understandably find it hard to hold onto staff.long shifts 12 hrs and quite a slog a lot of fine twiddling ur thumbs .

Stressful and underpaid
Although on the surface the home looks to be ok, the staff are undervalued and underpaid. The home is extremely fast-paced, with a mixture of dementia and mental health patients. You don't get much training, just a shadow shift and some online modules to complete. The home is impeccably clean and the domestic staff work tirelessly. There is a good staff bunch, there are a couple that don't pull their weight but you'll get this anywhere, generally the staff are what make the home. There are numerous errors with the wages, which are normally sorted when mentioned. The home is recently under new management who does appear to be good and making positive changes, however the owner of the home let's it down.

No Day the same
In General the home is a good place for the service users, i cant say they are not looked after and cared for.Staff wise if you speak up against them then your in the black book alot of back stabbing goes on. Management doesnt treat staff all the same,be careful what you say to the Manager as it will go around the home .Training is generally good in certain Areas ,but no backup in others . as someone else has said if your face fits youll be fine if your someone who doesnt speak up youll also be fine is a fast home your always on the move ...but you have to ask yourself if its a good home why are the good staff leaving ??
Chef in Old Dalby
on 7 May 2021
Simple work but Mentally challenging.
As a chef working at Hunters Lodge, I found it mentally challenging. The actual work load is not an issue, it's the environment. I feel I need to explain to prospective chefs that this is a totally different sector of the industry. It is not as simple as just cooking two home cooked meals a day. There will be no feedback from the residents as their dementia doesn't really allow this. There are dietary requirements and this may include anything from diabetic to no fish or citrus fruits also puréed foods. This latter statement was part of my issue. I was given zero training on what the consistency of the foods should be. I come from fine dining so know about purees, but you need to be specific about the consistency of the foods as it is very important to some of the residents diets. So there was always a battle with the carers as to whether it was right or wrong.If you have no experience of dementia then this is quite a sad and challenging environment. I would advise anyone to have had some previous experience with such a place. The staff are generally lovely and i respect them a great deal for having to work in a sector that is challenging and demanding for them. Also, try and get your breaks in. There is a lot of washing up to do, even with a kitchen assistant. And there doesn't seem to be enough time to fit in the breaks. You get deducted half an hour pay(which is standard) if you have your break or not. It's not a bad place to work, as long as you're of a caring and tolerant nature, but be prepared to see the sadder side of life.

Nice but busy
Hunters lodge is a busy and full on place to work but they care so much about the residents and that means alot.Each section of the home from housekeeping to activity staff all pull together to make it not just a place of work but a real home.Work is hard as a carer but isn't it always if done correctly?Management are wonderful and make you feel nothing is a problem.Training is up to date so you never feel out of your depth. A good place.
