The Home’s staff are selected for their qualities of reliability, integrity, skill, friendliness and professionalism. They are carefully screened and references are always checked thoroughly. All of the team impact on our residents’ well-being; the housekeeping staff, cooks, activities staff, maintenance as well as the care staff. We run training sessions for all staff to develop strong team working skills and an in-depth understanding of how to support our residents.
During induction all care staff are trained in line with the new Care Certificate based on 15 standards which individuals need to complete in full before they can be awarded their certificate.
The Home has a programme of NVQ/QCF training with both on-line and in-house training. Training is overseen by one of the management support team who is PGCE trained. Regular manual handling is carried out within the home by two staff who have their Train the trainers qualification and we have external consultancy support where needed.
