When we take on a new member of staff they undergo the Skills for Care Induction Standards which complies with the Care Quality Commissions Essential Standards of Quality and Safety. As well as Health and Social Care Act 2008.
We train all of our carers with core courses in:
- First Aid Awareness
- Health and Safety
- Moving and Handling
- Adult Safeguarding Awareness
- Dementia (the person centered approach)
- Fire Safety
- Food Hygiene
- Infection Control
- Hoist Training
All carers are supervised every three months and have annual appraisals together with ongoing training to include any specialist service user’s needs.
