    I worked at Four Seasons Health Care part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some good caring staff but majority no.

    Cons

    No support from management. Minimum wage. Wrong pay. Little to no proper training. You’re taught what to do to make your day lazy and easier. Lack of care with residents. Lots of cliques and made to feel stupid when asking questions or asking why something isn’t done the way it should be. Walking on eggshells with senior staff and management. Never know which of the 2 faces your going to get. Administrator is an absolute...

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip! Night spot checks needed to catch staff cutting serious corners. Lazy staff all round. Listen to the few staff that actually do care.

    I worked at Four Seasons Health Care full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    nice to work with residents, and other carers

    Cons

    the management at the time were hard to work with. some people simply didn't turn up to work and we were left to do a three person job with one carer or two,

    Advice to Management

    I think it has changed hands so it could be ok now.

    Pros

    Diverse and kind staff members, excellent quality of care for residents.

    Cons

    Hours are set on a weekly basis. Sometimes hard to keep up a social life. Pay may be too small for what is expected of care assistants.

    I have been working at Four Seasons Health Care full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Worked for four seasons for over 10 years, staff become family as do the residents

    Cons

    Quite honestly dont think there is an up side for working for four seasons, staff are pushed to there limits all day every day for peanuts! Working with bare minimum staff so they meet there targets!! Mangment couldn't care less about the staff!! Care more about making money to line there pockets than doing what's best for there homes, residents and staff!!

    Advice to Management

    Home mangers need to grow a back bone and stand up for there home, residents and staff in it!! Stop these big fat bonuses for mangers and put the money back into your homes!!

    I have been working at Four Seasons Health Care full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Colleagues and management alike want to offer the best care possible to residents.

    Cons

    Management are well-intentioned and care about providing good care, but no amount of good intentions are enough to allow for every duty to be performed. Staffing just isn't adequate for that. This forces carers to compromise on their values in an effort to finish as many duties as possible in a shift.

    Advice to Management

    I realise that you are trapped between a rock and a hard place in terms of limited funding and the need to provide quality care. But quality care can only be provided in a well-staffed home. It's essential that more care assistants are on duty so that person-centred care can be put into practice and not be just a buzzword.

    I worked at Four Seasons Health Care full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some colleagues Some lovely residents which I miss Hours are so long in one shift you can work 3 days and it be classed as full time.

    Cons

    It’s a very hostile working environment. A lot of back biting. A lot of cutting corners at the cost of employees and residents. Limited training i.e my manual handling last 15 minuets. Wasn’t offered a uniform until I handed my notice in which is ludicrous. Forced to wake residents in the early hours of the morning to bed wash in order to make the day staffs job early ( I think that may be called instructional abuse?)...

    Advice to Management

    People don’t leaving companies, they leave poor management. Treat your employees like human being and maybe your turn over of staff won’t be so high.
