We believe strongly in training our CAREGivers and assisting them to achieve their goals and qualifications.
One great example is our CAREGiver- Melonie Celestine who started working for us in November 2012. Melonie was introduced to us from another CAREGiver and we were impressed by her caring and compassionate nature when she had her interview. Melonie thought that she would need qualifications to work as a CAREGiver and was relieved to hear that we would provide all her training. She explained that she left school without any qualifications due to family circumstances.
After her induction training Melonie attended our Alzheimers and Dementia training and was one of our first graduates and received her first ever qualification a City and Guilds certificate in Alzheimers Disease and other Dementias. We presented this to Melonie in a frame and she was so pleased and promptly displayed this in her home. Next Melonie completed an NCFE Level 2 certificate in Understanding The Safe Handling of Medicines and then shortly after that NCFE Level 3 certificate in End Of Life. Melonie is presently studying for her Level 2 QCF in Health & Social Care and has nearly completed this qualification! Melonies next assignment will be Mental Health Awareness.
So Well Done to Melonie, we are all so proud of you. We enjoy seeing our staff grow and gain confidence during their time with us.
