    Pros

    Effective Teamwork, Great E-Learning, Generally Modern Facilities

    Cons

    Minimum Wage, Lack of resources such as wipes and pads, Lack of Career development, I also felt that even though a structure is in place for complaints it wasn't always effective and this has had serious consequences in some cases. Staffing issues have led to dangerous situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that upper management needs to come on the floor more to see what works well and what isn't. They also need to listen to the feedback from carers. I felt during my time in FSHC that lower management were always trying to cut costs and not always in a good way i.e three crackers with cheese for an evening meal with milk jelly afterwards isn't filling enough for us, let alone an older person who won't eat again till 8am the next morning.

    I found that the staffing ratios were wrong and didn't take into account that some residents required 1-1 care. Although I no longer work for FSHC, I do agency work and continue to go into your homes and see this same problem. It's the most horrible feeling being the only person on the floor and having people asking for help, but you're unable to because you're the only person (excluding a nurse, doing meds) on the floor.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Offer good training and courses

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to further yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More career opportunities and furthering yourself within the company, also more benefits for the work we do, pay rise and double or time and a half for bank holidays.
