The home employs 14 Care Assistants, 3 Kitchen Staff, 1 Deputy Manager and 1 cleaner, 90% of all our staff have at least three years experience in caring for the elderly if not possibly more.

The homes staff are selected for their qualities of reliability, integrity, skill, friendliness and professionalism.

They are carefully screened and references are always checked thoroughly. During induction all staff are trained in-house by experienced qualified senior staff in the following critical subjects:

• Care code of conduct
• Confidentiality
• The rights of clients
• Health and Safety
• Food Hygiene and Safety
• Personal Care Tasks
• Care Assistants Responsibilities

The home hopes that all existing Care Assistants will strive to hold a minimum of NVQ level 2 in Care. However all new members of staff must train to achieve this important qualification, as it will be a condition of employment with us.

The home also sends selected staff on external training courses for such topics as Food Hygiene, Care of the Elderly, First Aid, Drugs Practice, Infection Control etc
