We have an excellent team of highly trained professional care staff to look after you who are aptly supported by other professional staff. These include cooks, housekeepers, and an Activities Organiser, all highly trained in their respective skills. The experienced staff ensures that each resident is treated with respect and is provided the highest standard of care, all helping to maintain Yarborough House as a home away from home.
We place importance on the training and support of Staff at Yarborough House. This ensures that all our Staff are motivated and better informed for the benefit of Residents and the Staff themselves.
We employ dedicated staff, and our Investor in People application reflects the continuing training and development that our staff receive. Support is given to all Staff to acquire NVQs (National Vocational Qualifications) to all levels. NVQs are designed to recognise a candidate's competence in the workplace. They provide a statement to employers of skill, competence and knowledge.
The Home benefits from Residents that are looked after by members of Staff who not only understand their needs but can also always respond to them in a very professional manner.
In addition to specialist training our Carers are always trained to ensure that the privacy, dignity and choice of each Resident is respected.
We have an excellent staff ratio with a good skill mix on duty at all times. A senior person is always available to discuss any issues of concerns. We have a very good staff team who bring their own individuality into the home which creates the caring, homely atmosphere of our home. The staff team have a wiliness to learn to improve their knowledge in the care sector.
