Selection of Staff
Person Centred Care is not just about giving people whatever they want or providing information. It is about considering people’s desires, values, family situations, social circumstances and lifestyles; seeing the person as an individual, and working together to develop appropriate solutions. Being compassionate, thinking about things from the person’s point of view and being respectful are all important.
That is why we only employ a member of staff that shares these core values. All of our staff is DBS checked. We endeavour to provide training on all aspects of Person Centred Care, ensuring that the end user receives the very best care and consideration, done with care, compassion, dignity and respect.
If you think you have what it takes to make a difference to peoples lives, why not contact us and ask for more details. We are a committed and friendly team and are always looking for staff who are like-minded. If you have even a few hours to spare, we will happily take you on as a volunteer.
You can email or telephone us.
Chance for people out of work in Devon to become keyworkers
Proud to Care Devon has launched a campaign to recruit 2,000 more Care Workers urgently in the
county, particularly in domiciliary care and care homes. The campaign is encouraging those looking for training opportunities to consider if their skills and values are suitable for a career in care.
Proud to Care is offering free one-to-one telephone support to find out if a job in care is right for you.
You don’t necessarily need qualifications or previous experience. What’s important are your core skills, values and your attitudes towards working with people who need care. Furthermore, thanks to the European Social Fund, there are free and flexible training offers available to support people to find the right role, or to take a step up, in health and social care. The short courses and workshops are being offered by partners across Devon including Learn Devon, City College Plymouth, South Devon College, Exeter College and Petroc.
The Find Your Calling campaign aims to mobilise an army of new care workers in Devon, encouraging people with the right values and core skills to apply. The campaign calls for people to register their interest by completing a quick online form at:
Applicants will get a call back and the offer of free one-to-one support to find out if a job in care and health is right for them.
