At the heart of Wild Acres Care Home in Wokingham is our amazing team of carers. Many of the team have worked together for years, providing a consistent approach to care delivery and continuity.
We are aware that the home’s staff will always play a very important role in residents’ welfare. As such we will always ensure that we employ staff in sufficient numbers and with the relevant mix of skills to meet residents’ needs.
Recruitment and training are key to creating a successful team. We will provide appropriate staff with qualifications in health and social care and observe recruitment policies and practices which both respect equal opportunities and protect residents’ safety and welfare.
We offer our staff a range of training which is relevant to their induction, foundation experience and further development to ensure that they continue to deliver market-leading care based on best practice.
Management and Administration
We know that the leadership of the home is critical to all its operations. To provide leadership of the quality required, we will do the following:
- Always engage a registered manager a person who is qualified, competent and experienced for the task.
- Aim for a management approach which creates an open, positive and inclusive atmosphere.
- Install and operate effective quality assurance and quality monitoring systems.
- Work to accounting and financial procedures which safeguard residents’ interests.
- Offer residents appropriate assistance in the management of their personal finances.
- Supervise all staff and voluntary workers regularly and carefully.
- Keep up-to-date and accurate records on all aspects of the home and its residents.
- Ensure that the health, safety and welfare of residents and staff are promoted and protected.
