The birches chesterfield

Management at the birches is very inexperienced. From staff members and team leaders stealing money from residents to staff faking MARR charts to pass CQC. Staff having favourite residents and treating the rest like pure rubbish. Residents are not treated with respect and are often bullied by staff at the birches. The manager has no interest in the residents and only cares about passing CQC so puts on a front when she knows they are coming.

Pros

None

Cons

Pay. Management. Poor treatment of residents

Loving it

I came to Priory from another care provider and I’m loving my job. The staff team are amazing and the home has a real buzz and a lovely welcoming atmosphere. Staff genuinely care about our residents and truly know them, their likes, dislikes and preferences and this shows. Senior management are supportive and responsive. I do work long hours but you get out what you put in!

Some staff are a disgrace

I love the job and the residents and there are some wonderful staff. The staff absolutely adore the residents without a doubt. They are so loved and so cared for and deserve such love and care. However, I’ve come across some shocking staff at Chesterfields Priory. They antagonise, they do not respect residents or staff and think it’s funny to swear in front of the residents. They do not deserve to work there and it makes me so uncomfortable that anyone can get a job here with no qualifications. It’s constantly short staffed and then you are in trouble for not managing to get anything paperwork wise done properly. The activities for the residents are diabolical. The activities mainly conclude of painting nails and having a singer once a month. You are over worked and underpaid. It’s a sad and sorry truth. The training is very good. All in all, it’s a mixed review. Glad I’ve left but I miss the residents and most of the staff. Staff are sacked then re employed

Pros

Lovely residents, lovely staff (most)

Cons

Long hours, under paid, management don’t have a clue

avoid!

Staff work very hard and 9/10 times short staffed. The housekeepers do an excellent job on a daily basis, its just a shame management are only interested in making money and not the welfare of the staff. Poor wages for the work that you do. I highly recommend NOT to work for this company!!!

Pros

Friendly staff, who truly care.

Cons

Long hours, poor pay.

Very hectic and busy

Only one qualified on each floor to look after 42 residents, lots of medications to administer and a huge amount of paperwork to complete each shift everyday. Always playing catch up with the paperwork. Not much time to spend with residents. Not much activities going on on for the advanced dementia residents on the unit i was working on mainly sat around all day.
