our care homes
Our Staff

All staff receive regular ‘supervision,’ providing them with an opportunity to discuss any concerns they may have and to offload any anxieties about their work. 

Staff undergo a high level of training and are encouraged to achieve recognised qualifications in many subject areas.  To support continuous learning we provide both mandatory and developmental training, plus competency assessments for all personnel employed.

Specialist training ensures teams are:

  • Knowledgeable about the different types of dementia and how they might impact on the person’s life and others around them
  • Skilled to facilitate positive communication and enhance quality of life
  • Competent to identify risk, triggers and avert or manage behaviours that challenge
  • Motivated to research, discuss and seek expert opinion to improve care strategies
  • Confident to try out new strategies and evaluate their effectiveness
