What our carers say about us

"I started working for birchwood when I decided to go back to working in care and it is the best decision I made, the staff all make you feel welcome, they are very good helping with training, pay is better than some care companies and yes you can do long days but they are adaptable and have been excellent in adapting my hours around other commitments that I have with regards to family. Love working for birchwood, if you want to work in care and would like to work with staff that support you with training and all other aspects of the job birchwood is the place to work. Drivers also get paid mileage and travel time which many care companies do not pay which goes towards petrol costs and the clients are wonderful and always grateful for what we do, Best decision I made" (MF- employee).
