Health Care Assistants

Willett Lodge has a very strong team of Health Care Assistants.  In total we have approximately 15 Care Staff working at Willett Lodge.

Depending on needs of our residents, we usually would have One Nurse accompanied by;

–       3 Healthcare Assistants from 8.00am to 2.00pm

–       2 Healthcare Assistants from 2.00pm to 8.00pm

–       1 Healthcare Assistant from 8.00pm to 8.00am

Most of our Healthcare Assistants have or are working towards either an NVQ Level 2 or 3 in Care.

We have a dedicated training regime for all our Careers.  There is normally at least one or two training courses’ available in house for our Careers to attend per month.

Some of these would be;

–       Manual Handling

–       Dementia

–       Challenging Behavior

–       Health and Safety

–       Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults and Risk

All our Healthcare Assistants have regular supervisions, carried out by the Home Manager.

There are also weekly meetings carried out by the Home Manager with the Nurse and Healthcare Assistants on duty, where residents are discussed.  This helps identify new needs and observations.
