I worked nights at Vida grange, not all units were open then. You will meet people of most nationalities here. The work is hard and stressful as working with variable stages of dementia. Good training was given, always striving to be better. Good sized units, good sized resident rooms, well laid out. Timed on answering call bells. Management constantly check staff on units, almost nightly. Pay is enhanced for working weekends.
Pros
Great staffing area, support given if needed. Good staff
Cons
Long hours, hard work, short staffed, reliant on agency. Training can be given after working night shift.

Vida hall is by far the worst place I have ever worked. The communication from the management is shocking. Leaving notes in the staff room as one of their main forms of communication. The management don’t manage, they dictate and are not to be trusted. The way I was spoken to whilst I was there by staff and management was unbelievable. It made me feel worthless. The carers are brilliant and deserve to be paid more than they are on now.

There are never enough staff and we are continually fire fighting. Being NHS funding is always being cut so there are not enough staff to run properly particularly in holiday periods and when sickness occurs

Terrible sickness record with nursing staff. Management are to reactive rather than proactive. Communication is very poor. Management rely too much on the goodwill of the staff.
Pros
Local for me
Cons
All about Employer rather than employee
