At Camelot Care we believe strongly in finding and retaining the best people possible for each role. We recognise that having knowledge and understanding of dementia is one of the first steps in providing quality care which is why all our staff, including laundry assistants and those in the office are trained to meet this need.
We actively recruit caring staff and all staff undergo an enhanced DBS check before they begin. We train in house to the highest standard in dementia care, end-of-life care and other relevant training, and all our staff undertake a thorough induction programme before they commence work. In-house training is complemented by expert training for set topics, ensuring all our staff are up to date in the latest developments in dementia and end-of-life care.
Our emphasis on staff training allowed access to £25,000 of Workforce Development Funding for further training in Dementia and end of life care for Camelot House, along with £23,000 for similar training for Freshfields staff.
We believe a happy workforce is essential in promoting the best care for all our residents and we strive to make our homes a happy place to work. We have received the Investors in People award for staff development and secured a generous award from the Workforce Development Fund.
