All our care staff have gone through a process of interviews and both written and verbal reference checks and we carry out a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check which includes a police check on each staff member before we make a recruitment decision.
Once we have received satisfactory checks, our carers will go through a training period. This will involve training in moving and handling of people, assistance with medication, health and safety, first aid awareness together with an induction period where staff will be made familiar with our company policies and procedures.
All carers undergo refresher courses as changing legislation and new procedures and techniques update and vary and we encourage all our staff to undertake a health and social care diploma.
Some of our care staff have a vast amount of experience within the industry and some have nursing skills. Together as a team we are able to offer a truly professional friendly service to cater for our clients’ needs.
