To run an establishment like Airedale Nursing Home requires a large number of staff.
Qualified nurses are on duty 24 hours a day, plus care staff, one of whom has level 3 NVQ and others who have level 2.
All care staff within the home will be appropriately qualified to deliver the highest standards of care. A continuous staff-training programme is implemented to ensure that these high standards are maintained in line with latest initiatives and developments in care practices as may be laid down in appropriate legislation, regulations and the Care Quality Commission guidelines.
Carers will strive to preserve and maintain the dignity, individuality and privacy of all residents within a warm and caring atmosphere, and in doing so will be sensitive to the residents' every changing needs. Such needs may be medical/therapeutic (for physical and mental welfare), cultural, physcological, spiritual, emotional and social, and residents are encouraged to participate in the developments of their individual care plans in which the involvement of family and friends may be appropriate and is greatly valued.
In order to assist you with identifying our members of staff, we have listed below which uniforms they wear.
