Staff Statements

1st React have a core of excellent experienced staff who provide a very high quality of personal care and support. In particular, I have been impressed by the long-term commitment to some challenging clients, often requiring staff to work in some 'less than ideal' environments. The management is also very good at advocating for their clients when levels of support are considered inadequate or client circumstances change.

I have really enjoyed my time at 1st React Healthcare. I have had many opportunities for training which has included my Diploma Level 3 on medication which allows me to be the ambassador. We get reminders about mandatory training and are given plenty of notice to be able to complete them in.

We cared for a lady that sadly passed away and I was her main carer and worked closely with her niece too. She had a lot of mental health issues and struggled to interact with most carers. After 3 years at the company, we built up a strong relationship and she told me all about her life and struggles over the years and she felt most comfortable with me at all her visits. She expressed this to the manager and Deputy and they accommodated her on my run. I did weekly cleaning for this lady which was a struggle as she didn't like much doing but would let me do more each week. Shopping for her was completed by myself as well as her laundry. I have a lot of support from 1st react when I'm out on visits. I regularly visit the office at least once a week to just say hello and collect anything from my tray and I give them updates on compliments from clients about other carers. They always pass these on as the carers are really pleased when I next see them.
