Chef Manager Jake had never considered working in a care setting before, but he’s not looked back since joining the team at Resthaven care home in Pitchcombe Stroud.
“I didn’t think working in care was for me, but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! It’s definitely one of the better decisions I’ve made in my life!”
Jake has enjoyed becoming part of Resthaven community and has even brought his dog, Winnie, in to visit. Winnie tours the home and delights all the residents she meets with her friendly enthusiasm!
Jake commented, “It’s really good to spend time with the residents. I know most of them by name and you get to hear their stories. It’s much less stressful than my last job and the feedback from the residents is great. They really do enjoy their food.”
Jake finished with his recommendation, “I would definitely advise anyone to give working in care a shot.”
