Hi, iv'e got an interview this week at a Bupa care home, and was just wandering after reading horror stories on mumsnet about working in a care home, if it's right for me? I've never worked in one before and have only just recently got back into employment after having children. I have a severely mentally disabled 25 yr old son, which I do a lot for, but it was what I was reading about the way the staff treat other staff that wasn't nice. Does anyone know anything about Bupa and their reputation? I only want to do part time at the moment. Are their any positive stories out there? Thanks ladies.

I think you will find that a BUPA care home is very nice. My friend worked in a care home for a while and she loved it...not a BUPA one but she grew very find of her residents and formed some real friendships there. Good luck and go in with a mind clear of horror stories....we've all heard them but I doubt a BUPA home will be like that.
