Staff Management

Staff rotas are produced 4 weekly and constantly monitored, ensuring that all absences are covered, and staffing levels are maintained as per our Dependency Tool. A Dependency tool is used to define our staffing levels based on our occupancy and needs of each resident. This assures that all their needs can be met and managed.

Prior to each shift starting, the Senior Staff Member chairs a handover meeting where members of staff discuss the daily ongoings and wellbeing of each resident, in order to sustain a continuity of care.
