Care home staff training
Our care home staff go on an intensive two/three day Agincare induction before starting at one of our care homes.
Training covers many topics including:
- Safe moving and handling
- Infection control
- Dementia and cognitive impairment
- Nutrition and hydration
- Fire awareness
- Food hygiene
This is then followed by a 12-week induction, competency and training period.
Once our care staff have successfully completed a three-month probation they have the option to move on to a QCF Level 2 or 3 qualification in health and social care.
As well as regular reviews and supervisions we carry out mandatory annual and two-year refresher training, plus multiple specialist training including subjects such as Alzheimer’s, end of life care, epilepsy, diabetes, stroke and Parkinson’s.
