About the role
Our dementia care home is led by an experienced Registered Nurse who, along with the assistance of our Senior Nursing Team, provides clinical leadership and support directly on the communities. Our care home is separated into four unique and individual communities. Each community provides a home for 15 to 25 residents. Our nurses are pivotal in delivering clinical excellence and high standards of care and our operating model gives them the autonomy and status to run their shift on an allocated community. Our nurses are supported on every shift by an operational Team Leader who is trained in dispensing medication and we have a high ratio of care staff to each resident.
If you have a keen interest and passion for Dementia care, you will love our approach, our home is a place that is buzzing with activity and our residents totally benefit from the environment we have created. And to ensure ongoing opportunities and development for our nurses we’ve developed our clinical skills passport helping them to achieve clinical competencies and keep their skills and knowledge up to date.
