Our Staff

All the staff that work in the home are direct-employees

Being direct-employees means continuity of care and facilitates a “family” atmosphere. The home has a comprehensive training programme and a high proportion of its staff have achieved NVQ qualifications.

All staff undergo a planned induction programme using “Skills for Care”.  Our training programme includes specialist modules in dementia and challenging behaviour which gives staff a fuller understanding or our client group and how to cope with the many facets of dementia sufferers’ behaviour.

Staff work well as a team and were very pleased to have recently achieved the Investors in People standard.
