Our care staff
We currently employ approximately 40 care staff from various age groups and ethnic backgrounds.
All of our care staff receive training in:
- Health & Safety
- Moving & Positioning
- First Aid
- Food Hygiene
- Dementia Care
- Palliative Care
- Infection Control
- Fire Safety
- Adult Protection
Training is updated and reviewed on an annual basis. Specialised training is arranged in addition to the above as the need arises. The Senior Care Worker regularly carries out supervision checks on all staff to ensure our high standard of care is maintained.
The majority of our care staff either have or are currently working towards their NVQ 2 in Health & Social Care (current qualification has changed it's name to QCF Diploma Level 2 in Health & Social Care).
We obtain an Enhanced Disclosure from the CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) for all new staff and employment references from previous employers. Existing staff have their CRB renewed periodically. All our care staff wear uniforms and photo ID badges.
