As one of the UK’s top care home providers, it should come as no surprise that our team enjoys an award winning training and induction programme and that our care is built around the latest academic research and knowledge.
These high standards are clearly evident in the care we provide, making sure all residents get the most out of every day by having fun, staying safe, and keeping as healthy and active as possible.
Governance and training
Each of our homes have a team member who is trained as the Infection Control and Prevention Champion – they are responsible for carrying out a daily infection control audit and ensuring cleaning protocols are meticulously applied. They are supported by Senior Infection Prevention and Control Nurses who work within the business.
All colleagues in our care homes have received dedicated infection control training on enhanced clinical and hygiene procedures, and they carry these out while maintaining a positive atmosphere and as much normality as possible. All Care UK homes are subject to regular reviews and compliance checks by our central governance teams, designed to keep those living in our homes safe.
We have also introduced additional training such as the use of glo boxes, which are tried and tested tools to identify germs on the hands that work to emphasise the importance of effective hand hygiene for residents, colleagues and visitors alike.
We are finding new ways of working with GPs and other Health Care Professionals and are able to support Virtual GP visits for all residents.
