Michelle said recently:- 'after being a nursery nurse for 14 years I changed to adult care at first I was scared but it has turned out to be the best decision I made, its such a rewarding job seeing the smiles on the service users faces and making changes to peoples lives each day, as we might be the only people they see day in day out. I've been with the company nearly 3 years now and I've worked my way up to become a senior, and at the end of my diploma, I've also done in house training and train the trainer in medication. In the last 3 years I have learnt a lot about care and the team I work along side are always there for each other to help and pass ideas to each other, the managers are always at the end of the phone if they are needed, you learn new things each day it could be how to use a piece of equipment or how to give medication or how to change a catheter bag, or new things about a person always learning new things daily to better yourself, its such a lovely company to work for and I would recommend it to family and friends for their loved ones or even a job.'

Jean said recently:- 'I have worked with many different care company's over thirty years and never really settled (mostly due to lack of communication) but working for Different Care I have settled nicely into the job, everyone was so welcoming. The team are absolutely OUTSTANDING they go above and beyond for the service users, if there is a river to cross this team will build a bridge, its a team to be proud to be a member of. The response you get from your team mates if you need help is outstanding, no one is ever left unsure about anything. I got told that my training I could go further and a year later became a senior, its a company that rewards. Working for Different Care is like having a big family extension, everyone gets on with everyone (which is rare when working for a company), its a great company and was so easy to settle into, I'm proud to say I'm a member of the Different Care team.'
