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

    Pros

    New environment Met new residence Maybe learn something new

    Cons

    Where to start 1. Patients to staff ratio is shocking. Like 30 residence to two care staff and two nurses but if nurses are doing meds then that’s 2 carers to 30 patients and because it was a cic bed unit you would have patients that might need a Sara steady or hoist but if both of you are doing that who’s on the floor? Coupled with buzzers constantly going off of your hoisting or Sara steadying - who’s there to answer...

    Advice to Management

    1. Look at your patients to staff Rayo really look what equipment they might need to mobilise and how many staff that takes - if it takes two then you definitely need another member of staff to float about to answer buzzers especially when nurses are given medications A suggestion would be having a day staff member stay 1 hour longer to get meds put the way so nurses are free to help and night staff stay and extra...

    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!!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Four Seasons Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Career progression to those who are serious about a job in care, i.e SVQ Qualifications etc , Flexibility of days if you are a student ect

    Cons

    Shift lengths can be brutal, 15-hour shifts , less working days this way so i guess its up to the employee what they want.

    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.

    Pros

    miss the residents in the home you can have a good experience working there too.

    Cons

    horrible bullying culture. if you kiss the overlord's/overlady's [?] bottom, feed them with information about other staff, constantly compliment on how lovely they look, you will be safe. otherwise, you're on the crosshairs. minimum care provided to residents which appears to pay out good [?] dividends to directors, bonuses to prison wardens, i mean managers. 1 care assistant for each floor of over 20 residents, very...
