The management team was chosen for their experience, values, and desire to go above and beyond. We ensure that a robust recruitment process is adopted. Once recruited we ensure that all new staff are enrolled onto and supported with completing the Care Certificate and are safely and appropriately inducted. We ensure an appropriate skill mix of staff is on shift and appropriate numbers to provide the very best care for each resident in line with their needs. Staff are patient, compassionate and kind and give people time to make decisions for themselves.
