When changing employers I look for Job Variety, finding that role that I can make my own. In Applewood Homecare I have found a well-rounded company where clients and carers come first. A perfect example of how a Homecare Company should be managed.
Most important for me is for employers to genuinely care and look after the carers – I wasn’t sure what company I would work for was very nervous about picking the right one. Had never heard of them had seen an add on FB and it popped up everyday. Finally rang for an interview an never looked back. I love working for Applewood. The girls in the office are brilliant and really care for there carers.
When job-seeking I consider staff turnover, benefits for staff/pay/hols/ background of company and hours. After working for 3 other Care companies, Applewood caught my eye and I decided I wanted to be part of the team.
When looking for a job I consider support, hourly rate, nice hours, stress free. I learned a lot about the employer by asking questions and at the interview. I like Applewood for the support network they have in place.
Applewood offered what I needed & is local to my home and I got a good ‘vibe’! when being interviewed. Since joining the Applewood team, aside from being Professional , They are adaptive & Very supportive to ‘Carers’ needs, whilst of course never compromising the Client. Applewood have introduced many helpful inhouse for us from ‘Self Help for Carers’ – Health Insurance etc. We have Team Leaders & a Great Quarterly magazine . There is a Carer of the Month Award . Mostly, Applewood Value & Care for their Carers with a brilliant in-house team. I am proud to be an Applewood employee
