think very carefully

Poor current home manager. Stresses all staff the wrong way, has way too much autonomy, there's an inner clique. If your not in, it makes your work very hard to due to favoritism. No praise, appreciation or job security. No feedback good or bad. You can be dismissed without warning or good reason.. No respect of you being a person. You are disposable. I loved my job but sadly expectations became quite unreasonable given the time you have. I DID think working there was good overall, sadly now, my opinion has changed. The staff colleagues were a delight, fun and supportive. Training was excellent. You do not ever question given tasks, or life becomes very unpleasant very quickly .

Positive environment

I've worked in one of Brixham care homes for several years as a senior care assistant and it is a lovely home. The residents are well cared for, treated with respect and dignity. It has been a challenging couple years with covid pandemic but we have done so well in our home, we have kept our residents safe. New manager has joined us at the beginning of this year and has done an amazing job with changes inside the building, staff have been very positive about it and owerall it is a very positive and happy place.. We do our best for our residents with the support of the manager

Pros

Great management

The number of years say it all

I have worked for the family run business for 12 years. From the moment they offered me a managment job, they have been supportive. The job nowadays, especially with the current climate is not always easy. However the owners and their team are hands on and very supportive. I like to think this experience is passed down to all that work in the home I run. CONS It is long hours and weekends I am still ensuring all is safe at the home but that is the role of a manager I want the best so ensure I set an example and try and give my best I think the wage is representative down here but know that there are other parts of the country that pay a lot more that might be a downfall for the company when recruiting new management.

Pros

Support from the team Bonus

Cons

Enjoyable and positive

I enjoy working at the home. I am being encouraged to further my training and i know if i need help with any aspect of my job, there is someone who can help me. The most enjoyable part is spending time with the residents and making a difference to their day. I have learnt so much about working with residents who have dementia and have actually learnt alot about myself! I am challenged daily within the job, but in a positive way.

Poor management

When I worked at The Manor the residents were well cared for but the manager was having a relationship with a senior carer. When she found that people knew we were pulled in by the deputy manager and put on supervision and accused of gossip. should have spoken to her. The senior involved spent hours in the office instead of doing his job due to the relationship.

Productive company and very good team overall

I worked at the support office at Stonehaven for almost 4 years and I am glad to say that it is a very good company to work for. The reason I left the company was for a relocation abroad.

Not nice company to work for

Loved the residents and the home but poorly run by manager staff raised many concerns with company but didn't want to no, many staff left as not being listened to our concerns then we got banned of the premises and banned from seeing the residents which was very sad as we promised to visit so they must of thought we forgot them the care home is all about show and not solving issues that are going on behind the home no support from the company always back manager if though making many mistakes so my opinion not a nice company to work for

company not supportive

having worked for this company as a care Home Manager for a short period i found them to be unsupportive and unrealistic with regards to staff moral and development. Although the company offered a competive salary for managment this was out ruled by the inability to listen to key factors relating to the well being of new employees with no consideration given to points raised owing to whistleblowing or grievances other than to dismiss staff who had the confidence to speak up when things were not acceptable

Pros

salary

Cons

no room for 2 way communication, huge staff turnover
