    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 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.

    Pros

    Throughout my stay, the health care assistants are willing to give you a hand if you are struggling to deal with one of the residents.

    Former Employee - Health Care Assistant in Widnes, England

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

    Pros

    I don't think there actually was any pros about working there.

    Cons

    Worst place I have ever worked the management is just a bully and has no time for her staff only if it is her sister who works there. They belittle you and make you get people out of bed at 5 am when they don't want to but just because the day staff complained they had to use the hoist night staff had to get at least 8 people up on each floor before 8am. Residents was left in dirty pads by the day staff saying they didn't...

    I have been working at Four Seasons Health Care full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    if you want to care for people who need care to be given then four seasons is a good place to be working. i recently was talking with a colleague about why i prefer to work with older adults as apposed to primary school children(i previously worked as a pupil support assistant), and my answer was spontaneous, i said i feel like i can truly be myself. simply put. i enjoy striving towards the best practice which is required...

    Cons

    downside is knowing when its likely that a resident is nearing the end of their life and the emotional impact can take time to recover from. its physically demanding and to do your best means (for me) you should en-devour to stay fit and well

    Advice to Management

    i feel valued as a staff member in the establishment where i work

    Current Employee - Health Care Assistant in Gosport, England

    I have been working at Four Seasons Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Near home, get the hrs I want to work, most staff brilliant to work with. Residents are wonderful people who have so much to give.

    Cons

    Staff shortages, overworked, stress levels high wrong mix of staff..........experience ect......

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, and actually get on the floor and work this goes to ALL management !!!! Go undercover and see exactly what we carers do for our residents and how the residents and carers feel when we run out of time or get told you can't take them to the loo as meal times come first!!!!
