What our clients say
“I have always been very pleased with the carers I have had, they have been kind, friendly and helpful. Also, they are smart, clean and tidy and always do the work I ask them to do. Years ago they looked after me and my meal, now I am a lot better – they look after my house for me!”
What our staff say
“I love being a carer because I like being able to make a difference to people’s lives, and being able to support them to stay in their own homes. I like working for Birchwood because they expect high standards from staff. Everyone has a role to play in the team, everyone’s role is important – that’s why it works. I have always felt supported by the management at Birchwood; they care about their staff and make us feel valued, and the training and opportunities that we are encouraged to take to develop our role as a worker are brilliant.”

What you need to know
Care is not an easy job; it’s a sector with a high turnover. But, for the right people, it offers rewards that are hard to find elsewhere, and Birchwood Care offers a sense of family and belonging not found at other agencies. That’s why some of our staff stay with us year after year – and why others leave, only to come back. If you’re the right person, we’d love to hear from you.
“I believe I am treated as a person who matters to [my carers] and their kindness is absolutely genuine.”
“Staff were supported to undertake training and qualifications appropriate to their roles to increase their knowledge and skills.”
