Do NOT Recommend!
Management constantly look down on staff with no support from anyone with higher authority. Most senior's sit around all day and do bare minimum whilst others will abuse their "power" or think they are actually within the management team.Residents do NOT come first here and there is absolutely 100% NO RESPECT between staff. Constant bickering, drama, chinese whispers of "he said", "she said" etc.No room for progression within the company due to laziness and instead told to sort it all out ourselves. No sympathy for those with children or outside commitments and expected to drop everything at a moment's notice for "meetings" that don't have any positive impacts to follow up with.Do not apply for a job here, it is not as pretty as it looks.

Culture of bullying lead by the manager
The interim manager and her deputy are a nightmare. Rude and lazy and a strong culture of bullying. Sadly the residents come 2nd. I was that concerned I have contacted safeguarding and the nurse governing body

Unfortunately, for the hype and the jazzed up website, the walk around and interview will not prepare you for working at the farmstead. The wage isn't worth what the care staff are put through. Senior staff don't listen and don't care that the care team are run off their feet or exhausted. The place is extrelmy short staffed. No insentive to do extra hours but you are guilt tripped in to doing them anyway. The residents are very very high demand with some being extrelmy rude and aggressive, some are even violent. You will hardly ever have any time off and will work every weekend. The hourly rate doesn't change for night staff even though it is only one care member per floor with one nurse, while the nurse is doing everything she is supposed to, you are on your own. They would never do this on a day shift. You will go home with your body hurting from all the running around and manual handling you will be doing on your own. The training is abmismally poor. There is no support or negotiation on rota changes. The upper management will descend upon you in the middle of the night and stay in an unused room as if it were their own personal hotel. You hardly ever see the manger unless there is a meeting, so any issues or problems you face, have to filter through the lower management. Very little and poor communication throughout the company. It has been open for eight months and have had clients in for six but they are still running out of the basics such as pads, wipes etc. For a new company less than a year old, the fact that upper management have come down to "turn the place around" is terrible. Good lucki f you still want to apply here. I advise you not to.
