Good place to work, friendly and inviting

A typical day entails, cooking dinner for 60 residents, ordering stock for all shifts, rostering kitchen staff to cover six regular shifts, liaising with RN's about residents dietary needs which can change daily, making sure all paperwork is filled in for each shift.

Pros

Lots of people willing to tell good stories if you take the time to listen to them.

Cons

Working for a charity can be hard sometimes as they expect you give time regularly.

Life is a journey

The Whiddon Group is a place where you not only earn money to take care of your family, but a place where you feel passionate about what you do. Taking care of the elderly is a very important role as you're trying to make them feel that there is life beyond compare. Your role is to make their life worth living. Their daily activities is also important so that they enjoy every single day with staff and families, where you try to occupy their times and their mind with different activities eg, Shopping, Bus outings, Outdoor BBQ, Beach Trip, Bingo, special events like Birthdays etc. At the end of the day, we ensure that all residents enjoyed each day with the assurance that there's happy days ahead. Even though they are not physically 100% in health, we always make sure that they take part in any activities at a safer and happier way. You also learn that you are not alone in the workplace, as you are working as a team, you get to know your colleague and they will be the ones to lend a hand in daily work and help make work smoother. The hardest part is when you lose them at the end of life but you will always treasure all the memories you made with them.
