What makes a good carer?

A kind and caring person with a compassionate nature.

A sunny disposition.

A person trained to the highest standards with all the skills and competencies necessary to ensure those we care for are safe in our hands.

A person who feels valued and supported.

A person who is led by a vocation to care and seizes every opportunity for their own personal development in that vocation.

A person who is loyal, honest and committed to clients and their families.

A person who is patient and prepared to go the extra mile.

How do we ensure that all our carers have these attributes?

It starts with our thorough and in depth selection process which involves background checks, interview stages, practical training by our own bespoke Training Centre and shadowing an experienced carer before they start work.

At every stage, our new recruits are checked and monitored to ensure they are suited to the job they are doing.

Our commitment to Training Excellence is second to none.

Each carer is trained by our own expert trainers in our own Training Centre. This includes Induction Training at the start of their employment with Care Connect, and mandatory training including the Care Certificate which is the nationally recognised qualification for care professionals.

CARERS HAVE THESE ATTRIBUTES
Care Connect UK

All training is delivered by our own fully qualified team of trainers.

We provide specialist training in areas such as stroke, dementia and end-of-life care. When we combine this specialist training with a carer’s existing skills and care experience, we can be sure that we have a truly professional carer in our winning team.

Each carer is mentored and supported through regular supervision and an annual appraisal, all of which contribute to their own personal development plan.

All calls are monitored electronically. Sufficient time is allocated to each call to ensure that the carer does not feel rushed or anxious about getting to the next call on time. In this way our carers are able to demonstrate their commitment to their clients and feel that they are able to go the extra mile for them.

I joined Care Connect originally in early 2019 as a Home Care Worker following 10 years caring for my husband who lived with Mixed Dementia until 2018. This experience stood me in good stead in many areas including liasing with Social Services, varied health care professionals and an excellent understanding of medication. I also pride myself on having an insight into the feelings and every day occurrences of our service users and their families, which I consider to be a very important aspect of my role.

Training and Recruitment Officer

I originally joined Care Connect as a Home Care Assistant after caring for family members with mental health and learning difficulties. I believe this helped me progress in my role within the care industry. This led to me being promoted to Training and Recruitment Officer in January 2024.

I am looking forward to being part of the process of getting the right carer for the right client and seeing it through to the end result. Also, part of the role is to support our Carers in their journey, from the training room and out in the community delivering the care, that is so needed.
