Most of our carers have been with us for years! Fortunately, we have lots of people coming to us for work and we don’t suffer the recruitment issues that a lot of domiciliary care companies currently experience.
We have a responsive monitoring system and the carers are monitored weekly when we visit them and our clients. This is not in a structured way – the last thing we want our clients to feel is that their house is an extension of our office! We love visiting our clients and carers for a cuppa and a chat! They also have 4 formal supervisions a year and an appraisal, apart from the ongoing training and competencies.
Carers require a bedroom, small space in a fridge and shelf in a cupboard for groceries. There is no charge towards the carers food, but we pay the carers a weekly food allowance.
The structure of the day is designed to suit you and your needs. Care activities, meal preparation, housework / laundry, companionship etc., usually take up most of the working day. The carer will require a two hour break where she/he will be able to leave the house, this is at a time that suits you.
We treat our carers with respect and enjoy excellent communication with them. We are one happy family!
