Our Valuable Team Members
We have twelve registered nurses on our staff. It is the policy of the home never to use agency nurses and therefore all our residents are totally familiar with all our nursing staff. We have nine RGN’s and three RMN (Registered Mental Nurses), each with three years professional training and hospital experience.
Carers/Housekeepers and Catering Staff
This team consists of sixty eight members. Each and every one has a valuable role within the organisation and all play their part in providing the first class care afforded to our residents. Following three months service all staff are provided with NVQ training. Staff are required to refresh training qualifications on a regular basis. We use external trainers for group sessions, staff attend courses at off-site venues and use interactive training resources too.
Maintenance Person and Gardeners
We have our own maintenance personnel and are therefore able to ensure that maintenance is always dealt with swiftly. Our gardeners take pride in producing beautiful gardens for the residents to enjoy.
Personal Activities Co-ordinators
We have one full time and two part time activities co-ordinators whose responsibility it is to ensure that residents have access to regular entertainment, whether it is reading them poetry, playing cards or a group activity. Our activity calendar is varied to cater for all our residents’ hobbies and interests.
