Does Barchester Healthcare assist with or provide childcare?

Pros

I am currently working at elmbank Care home( Barchester ) in Kettering as a senior Carer. I’ve been working for 17 years in care sector especially people with Dementia and I am passionate and love my job. This care home has a good vision and mission towards the residents and staff. I believe that this challenging situation that we are facing right now.

Staff and management , work hard and helping each other to make the home better place for our residents. And I will salute to our acting manager Jayne Burgess and deputy manager Becky for their hard work and unconditional support to all the staff which gives hope for all of us.
