Staff Testimonials

"I no longer feel like a number in this home, I play an important role in the lives of Service Users & everybody in the organisation knows my name".      

“Where I worked before I did not feel valued, it’s different here”.      

"The important things get lost in big companies. It’s not like that here, everyone cares about Service Users."      

"The standards here are far higher than any other care home that I’ve worked in. It’s great to be part of a team which is held in high regard”.     

"We asked for an extra toilet to be included in the annual business plan & we are now getting a state of the art wet room which will make our lives much easier”. 

"The OT told me the other day this is the best home in Reading, I believe her!" 

"Staff turnover is nearly non-existent, I like knowing the team I work with well, it’s much better than constantly working with agency staff who don’t know the Service Users. You don’t then have to do their work for them."  

"I like having the time to really help people & get to know their likes & dislikes".
