      You structure your working day so its really up to you what happens in the day. The people you support are very loving and have great personalities. It is rewarding emotionally

      Poor pay for the work you do. Mostly long shifts 12/24 hours. Little support from management.

      Pros

      Excellent people I supported and my fellow staff.

      Cons

      Utterly appalling management culture. Blaming and bullying are par for the course. They drain you mentally and physically. You'll have to fight for every penny you've earned here. So dangerously understaffed it's criminal. Please don't work here, you will regret it. They exploit the kind heartedness of their staff to the max. Don't ever expect a thank you for anything.
